Mcerlean hoping to narrow points deficit
Josh Mcerlean will return to Junior 1000 action on the Keith Frecker Memorial Stages this weekend looking to close the gap to points leader Peter Bennett.
Mcerlean missed the first round of the season, but won the subsequent two rounds at Anglesey and Melbourne.
However, he hasn’t competed on the Weeton Camp-based event before and believes competition there – and for the rest of the season – will be very tight.
“We’re going there with a level head,” said Mcerlean. “From this round onwards the championship moves away from the circuit-based venues we’ve done so well on to date to venues that are generally more gravelly, narrow and fast. The competition will be closer.”
