About the project

Cameron has a dream, like so many others, to make it all the way to MotoGP. It is a massive dream with so many hurdles to overcome along the way.

Cam is a 12 year old Motorcycle Road racer who lives and breathes for racing.

Cam has so much potential which he has shown so far. Notably he has achieved the following in his career to date:

  • Started racing in 2018 and finished 3rd as the youngest and most inexperienced competitor in Motostars that year.
  • Finished 2nd in the NSW short course championship in 2018 as the youngest competitor
  • Won the North Coast Road Racing Championship in 2018 as the youngest competitor
  • Set the track record for Rookies at Grafton in 2018
  • Finished 2nd in Motostars in 2019
  • Won the NSW Short Course Championship in 2019
  • Set a faster track record for Rookies at Grafton in 2019
  • Came 2nd in the Australian junior road racing championship at his first race weekend old enough to compete in that category in all 3 races at Proserpine in 2019
  • Set a new track record at Phillip Island for the R15 class at testing for Oceania Junior Cup
  • Set a new faster track record for Rookies at Grafton in 2020
  • Set a new track record for Rookies at Lismore, being the only Rookie to ever go under 35 seconds, timing at 33.9 seconds.
  • Set a new track record for Juniors at Lismore, being only the 2nd junior to ever go under 35 seconds, timing at 33.699, beating the time set by Billy Van Eerde back in 2015.

Unfortunately Cam hasn’t been able to compete as expected throughout 2020 due to Covid, however, OJC completed 3 rounds and as the youngest competitor in a field of 11 -15 year olds he finished 4th overall, taking 2 x 3rd places at the Wakefield rounds, being the highest placed 2008 born competitor, and the highest placed interstate competitor. 

Cam would love to proudly fly the Aussie flag and compete in the Northern Talent Cup in the 2022 season. Being born in the UK he is eligible to compete and it would be an amazing next step to show his skills and is part of the official Road to MotoGP programme.

The Northern Talent Cup involves racing at Brno, Czech Republic and Sachenring, Germany with MotoGP, Assen In Netherlands with WSBK, Red Bull Ring in Austria, Lausitzring in Germany and Hockenheim in Germany with IDM, and Oschersleben In Germany with Speedweek

While Cam has plenty of talent and huge amounts of commitment, the costs for us as a family to do this alone and fully reach his potential are prohibitive, so we need to raise as much as possible to make this dream a reality.

To take part we estimate that the costs will be approx $75k plus at a minimum made up from:

  1. $31,000 (includes entry to all rounds, plus bike, tyres, helmets, fuel)
  2. $15,000 flights to Europe x 4 trips or 5 trips for Cam and his Dad (so that he misses the minimum amount of school and Dad the minimum amount of work)
  3. $10,000 accomodation costs for Approx 13 weeks in Europe
  4. $1,000 for leathers
  5. $12,000 van for transport and storage of bike and moving from track to track with fuel
  6. Costs for any crash damage

Any support which Cam can get with this, is gratefully received. Every single dollar we can raise will help make this dream a reality, and every single dollar will go into getting Cameron racing and realising his full potential. Through Cam's fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. So please show your support by donating 

Cameron’s dream is huge, but you can never achieve a dream if you don’t at least put in all your effort to achieve it. It’s better to try your best, than live a life wondering ‘what if I have just given it a go?’

Thanks you for reading and thank you for your support.
