Galvin to contest new FX125GP category
125GP rider Peter Galvin is excited to be racing in the AFXC series in 2010.
“Australian Road & Track Rider Promotions has done a great job putting together a series that has the objective of regenerating interest and growth in motorcycle road racing at a cost effective and affordable level” commented Galvin.
“In these less than certain times, it is important competitors are offered value and options that suit their budgets while still having a real chance of winning. The AFXC has an excellent 5 round series and class structure to suit 125GP riders providing real incentives for the class to grow and prosper in 2010.”
“I’m quite excited about the introduction of the new FX125GP Sport class into the 125GP category. The FX125GP Sport class restricts some machine modifications with the objective of keeping down costs and maintaining as level a playing field as possible added Galvin.”
“The commitment the AFXC is making to build the 125GP class is commendable and I look forward to competing in the series in 2010.”
Along with the introduction of the new Sport class, 125GP competitors will benefit from extra track time, more racing, less travelling, less time away from work, safe circuits with air-fence and the return of TV coverage for the Australian Championship class.
Terry O’Neill the General Manager of ARTRP said “It’s great to have one of Australia’s most successful racers decide to race in the new FX125GP Pro-Open class in 2010. That and the fact that Peter sees the value in introducing an entry level 125 class in the FX125 Sport class which is aimed at bringing on young riders and those without the larger budgets that it takes to compete at the top level in the open 125 class only bodes well for the future of the 125 GP class in Australia.”
O’Neill added “Peter Galvin is the Kevin Curtain of the 125 class, easily the most recognizable GP 125 champion in this country over a number of years his experience and enthusiasm for racing 2-stroke GP bikes is unequalled and having his guiding presence in this years FX125GP Pro-Open class at the Australian Formula Xtreme Championship will be a very good thing for all those aspiring 125 riders coming up through the ranks.”
