• Queensland’s Josh Grajczonek must be close to getting a call up for Australia’s World Cup side following a string of really good performances across Europe during the past month.
Ironically, Josh had a fairly drab summer on track here in Australia by his standards following a couple of big get offs in the Aussie titles but he’s goin’ great guns now!

• Heffernan Motorsports retail headquarters will soon re-locate to a more central Hunter Valley location that will make picking up and dropping off parts a lot easier – even for people just passing through the region – more details soon.

• No doubt many speedway fans will have watched some of the coverage of the Isle of Mann road races recently and marvelled at the herculean performance of John McGuinness. John is a speedway fan and often attends major events in the UK, as is evidenced by this great Jeff Davies photo.

• Kurri will host round three of its club championship this weekend (Saturday), with overall point scores close in all divisions. Once again the weather bureau is predicting unsettled weather but surely Campo and his team are due some luck!

• Congratulations to the Mildura Motorcycle Club, who have had their contribution the local economy recognised in recent times. The much improved venue hosted a string of high profile events last summer and has been credited with bringing big dollars into the region – well done to all concerned.

• Badly injured Queenslander Darcy Ward is set to return to Europe later this year in what will certainly be an emotional return for not just Darcy, but also his legion of fans.
Darcy’s absence from the track is something that many race fans may never come to terms with, but no doubt getting to see him in the flesh will be a positive for everyone.
