Husqvarna Unites Two Aussie Dirt Track Legends

Posted:

As a pioneer brand in off-road motorcycle sport, Husqvarna may be a famous and familiar competitor in many disciplines, but dirt track racing is not foremost among them.

That may be about to change as the brand embarks on a new pilot program, in which two of the most famous dirt track racers in Australian history have united with Husqvarna. And the result could become a wellspring for future world champions.

Nine time Australian champ Paul Caslick has signed with Husqvarna, backed by the dealership of his good mate - the most decorated dirt track racer Australia has ever seen, Chris Watson of Chris Watson Motorcycles, Cessnock.

Caslick, a winner of 150 Queensland Championships across dirt track, long track, flat track and grass track, is, at 46 years of age, a tireless contributor to the sport; competing, serving as an MA Coaching Commission member, and sharing his wealth of knowledge with younger competitors via Caslick Coaching Clinics.

His strong performances at the Troy Bayliss Classic in January, and his win in equally prestigious company at last month's motorcycle Expo in Brisbane suggest he's lost little of his skill with the throttle.

‰ÛÏDirt track is a growing market, and one that has seen something of a rejuvenation of interest following events like the Troy Bayliss classic." Jon Hafey HQVA Sales Manager commented. "It's a sport that is accessible to a great number of riders, but it's also been instrumental as a breeding ground for world class competitors.

"Our successful Grand Prix road racers are well known, but less known is the fact that there are currently 29 Australians earning a living in the UK racing speedway.

"Husqvarna sees the value in dirt track and we want to support it, and what better way to do that than to sponsor one of the Legends of the sport - backed by another one - with his racing and coaching clinics.

"In that way, this is something of a pilot program for Husqvarna, and it's exciting to consider what it could all lead to in the future.‰Û
