Upper Hutt racer’s international debut
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.
