Sam Masters Gets Wild Card Call Up For Australian SGP

Posted:

Australian Championship runner-up Sam Masters is set to realise a lifelong dream after being named as wild card for the DON Smallgoods Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Melbourne‰Ûªs Etihad Stadium on October 24.

The Newcastle, New South Wales-born racer dons the famous No.16 race jacket for his FIM Speedway World Championship debut on the night the 2015 champion will be crowned.

Masters has enjoyed a strong season, which started with him finishing second to SGP regular Jason Doyle in the four-round Australian Championship in January.

The 24-year-old has played a starring role for British Premier League club Edinburgh Monarchs this year, helping them secure top spot in the table ahead of the championship play-offs. He also lines up for the Leicester Lions in the British Elite League.

Masters can‰Ûªt wait to take on world speedway‰Ûªs top names in front of his home fans.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs not every day you get the chance to ride in a Grand Prix." Masters said. ‰ÛÏThere are riders in the meeting I have beaten once or twice before. So there‰Ûªs no reason why I can‰Ûªt get a few points.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm definitely stoked to be there. I can‰Ûªt actually believe I have the opportunity to ride in the Grand Prix. It has been a dream for me my whole life. It‰Ûªs going to be something different ‰ÛÒ that‰Ûªs for sure.

‰ÛÏI know all my mates and my sponsors back home are coming along. It would be good to put on a show for them. Having our friends and family there makes it a very important SGP for us Aussies.‰Û
