Upper Hutt Leader - - SPORT -

Up­per Hutt mo­tor­cy­cle racer Ro­gan Chandler has made his de­but on the in­ter­na­tional mo­tor rac­ing stage.

The 19-year-old ap­pren­tice builder was in Aus­tralia on August 26 and 27 to try his hand at the Aus­tralian Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onships at Mor­gan Park Race­way, south of Toowoomba.

The for­mer Here­taunga Col­lege stu­dent was en­tered in the Su­pers­port 300 class and said it had been a new ex­pe­ri­ence for him.

‘‘I had never rid­den over­seas, at this track or on this bike,’’ he said.

He raced a Yamaha YZF R3 for Acid Rac­ing and was placed 23rd out of 33 rid­ers in the cham­pi­onship stand­ings.
