Jarred Brook Smashes the Competition at 2017 Australian Senior Track Championship
December 13, 2017

Jarred Brook, hailing from Queensland has sensationally claimed victories in the Pro 450, MX Open and the Pro 250 classes at the 2017 Australian Senior Track Championship. Hosted by the Tamworth Motorcycle Club, the event was a great success and put on a spectacular show for the local spectators from 8-9 December.

The President of the Tamworth Motorcycle Club, Paul Slade was pleased with the success of the Australian Track Championship; “The event delivered plenty of action and really exciting racing. The track was in really good condition and handled the warm sun well. The standout has to be Jarred Brook – who won the final and Nick Morris won the Pro Open. The crowd was very impressive on Saturday night and riders were very happy with the two-day set up,” Slade finished.

World class talent was on display for everyone to see with former champions going up against up and coming new comers. However, it would be Brook to deliver a performance for the ages, taking an impressive haul of medallions for his trophy cabinet.

Brook sharing after the event; “That’s a wrap on the 2017 season, what a way to finish at the 2017 Australian Long Track Championships held at Tamworth on the weekend. Absolutely stoked to come away with winning the Pro 450, MX Open, Pro 250 and coming away with a second place in the Pro Open. Couldn’t have done it without the fantastic support of my team, family and sponsors.”
