Josh Farrell Brings Home A Podium For Royal Enfield
Fans recently saw the running of the BRTS Speedway Championships at Mick Doohan Speedway, Brisbane. Royal Enfield rider Josh Farrell was the sole non-Harley rider in the ‘Hooligans / Twins’ Class on his Interceptor 650 but still showed dominance on the parallel twin.
This class was an invitational race only and it sure did entertain the crowds with bar-to-bar racing throughout the day. Josh came away with third place overall, after having only ridden the Interceptor 650 a couple of times prior to the meeting and it was his first competitive hit-out on the Interceptor.
“It was a much tighter oval than what I’ve been used to racing on in the past, so I was almost in a constant slide all the way around, therefore needing to keep over the front of the bike and steer with the rear.” commented Josh.
“With some more set-up and track time I’m confident I can improve on this weekend’s results. Overall I was pretty happy with the outcome on the weekend though, as we’ve still got a bit of work to do on the setup, but as the only bikes in front of me were at least 1200cc, I reckon we did pretty good”
Josh’s next ride will be at selected rounds of the ‘Sultans of Slide’ series and the `Short Shift Showdown’ at Coffs Harbour in September.
