With only days before the opening round of the 2015 MX Nationals season gets underway at Horsham, Team Raceline Pirelli Suzuki rider Rhys Carter says he is raring to go for the weekend.
With an injury to MXD teammate Brock Mcleary forcing him out of the round one event, all eyes will be on Carter to see what impression he can make in the MX2 class.
Carter has had an uninterrupted pre-season in the lead-up to the series, and says that he is feeling very optimistic about the weekend despite having never competed at the Horsham venue.
‰ÛÏYeah I‰Ûªm looking forward to it - I‰Ûªm in a similar position to what I was last year where I don‰Ûªt really know where I‰Ûªll stack up against the good guys." Carter said. "I‰Ûªm excited to be with Raceline - they have been a huge help already so I‰Ûªm looking forward to it.
‰ÛÏI haven‰Ûªt actually been to Horsham before, so I‰Ûªm really looking forward to going out there having a look at it and riding on it.
‰ÛÏThe aim for the weekend is basically to come out of the first round healthy with some solid points to start the championship. I‰Ûªd like to be around in the top-five somewhere, and even if it‰Ûªs a couple of spots off that I‰Ûªm not going to be too worried.
‰ÛÏI know what this class is like so if I can just stay consistent I can then look forward to the following rounds.‰Û
