Our objective is to raise funds to support the international road racing ambitions for Jackson Macdonald. We are under no illusions, the sport is fiercely competitive and survives on passionate supporters, sponsors, and family.


Since February 2022, Jackson’s rapid adaption to the road racing circuit has been nothing short of exceptional.


At 9 years of age, Jackson was issued an age exemption to compete in his debut year on the FIM Mini GP Australia circuit. Learning, developing, and racing against 14 year olds, Jackson completed the 2022 season with race finishes in the top five – etching closer to the podium.


In 2023, at 10 years of age Jackson earned numerous PB’s on the Ohvale 160cc in the FIM Mini GP Australia World Series, smashing his lap times from 2022. Jackson achieved consistent top five race finishes and set multiple lap times and records along the way.


2023 also saw a deep faith and support of his development with the introduction of ‘big-bike racing’. On a Scriven’s Honda custom RS85cc, in a Moto3 chassis, Jackson raced the two-stroke against some of Australia’s rising stars, setting lap times at Broadford Motorcycle circuit while chipping away at the long-held Joel Kelso lap record.


Jackson’s riding style and off-track charm has captured the attention of many in the road racing community, reminiscent of racing stars before him. Jackson has been benefited by calm, wise support to navigate the complexities of the sport and ceased an opportunity to race at the Spanish MIR Championship in the Moto5 category. Spending time in Spain to train, experience various tracks, and ultimately race at the infamous Jerez circuit with a wildcard entry solidified his desire. Alot was learnt, the next step is to plan ongoing development.


Small stature (perfect for GP racing!) and age both place limitations on Jackson in terms of Australian-based racing opportunities. Based on this, Jackson will not be able to compete in the Oceania Junior Cup, a natural pathway for developing racers in Australia. He will need to ensure access to deep fields of high quality racers, which at this time, is based overseas.


Jackson will be maintaining a flexible schedule in 2023, moving between RS85 state and national racing, selected rounds of the FIM Mini GP Series and will likely spend time in Spain to content multiple rounds of the MIR Spanish Championship.


We have been fortunate to receive contributions to Jackson’s racing by way of the RS85 allocation, riding product discounts and financial donations during 2023. We have now been approached to open a fundraising account so that we can allow people to continue contributing in a financially effective way, personally and commercially for businesses.


Jackson is an incredible public speaker, who has appeared on stage at the Australian Motorcycle GP with famous Chef Miguel for an interview, has been interviewed on youth local radio, and interviewed for his local newspaper. Jackson’s social media is built on his input and monitored by his parents. The pages portray an honesty and journey story that is engaging to his supporters.
