Robbie Ready to Rumble
Robbie Marshall is ready to Rumble
If the lead up events are any indication, Northstar Yamaha/Serco Motorsport racer Robbie Marshall is set to stake a serious claim for the Pro Lites Australian Supercross Championship starting this weekend at the Wayville Showground in Adelaide.
Fresh from his back to back victories, with some tough competition, in the early season Queensland Stadium Motocross series, Marshall has started his 2007 season with all guns blazing and heads into the event full of confidence.
"So far things have been going great. The program I have, combined with the right people around me, mean I am enjoying my riding and training more than ever. For the last few years I have been pretty close to winning this championship and this time I hope to go all the way," Robbie said.
Early season success has also meant Marshall as added to his already long list of sponsors. Serco Motorsport has again tipped considerable time and energy into Robbie and will be supplying factory suspension for the duration of the championship, while top shelf tyre maker Dunlop is now part of team Marshall.
"Its great to have these companies behind me. Working with the Serco guys is awesome, Gavin and Michael do a great job, while Dunlop tyres are the best in the business. It’s my aim to repay them and Northstar Yamaha for their faith with some good results," Marshall explains.
"No doubt Robbie is a talented racer," says Serco owner Gavin Eales. His early season form is encouraging and we think with the support of Serco a championship is in the offering, Eales continues.
Robbie’s workload over the next month will be as tough as any rider in the country. In among contesting the four round Australian Supercross Championship through February and March, he will also be for-filling his freestyle commitments with Yamaha’s ShowTime FMX. ShowTime is a travelling freestyle feast for the eyes where Marshall along with a team of Yamaha thrill seekers leap their YZ250s high into the air while performing amazing tricks including the show stopping back flip.
