MacDonald ready for battle!
Josh MacDonald is ready to bring the curtain down on his 2021 British season as he competes in the Teesside Silver Helmet tomorrow evening at the Media Prima Arena, (19:30 start).
MacDonald has competed in both of the open meetings held at Redcar this season due to the likeness he has shown for the circuit, “I’m a really big fan of the track. Everytime I turn up at Redcar I tend to go okay, not brilliant but I think I’m pretty decent around the place!”
The Scunthorpe Scorpion believes his season could have been better, “It hasn’t been the best season for myself, I have put myself in silly situations where I have cost myself points in races but in speedway and in life you never stop learning and you live and learn from your mistakes.”
The likeable Aussie also revealed he has struggled with injury this season, “I have probably rode half of the season with a shoulder problem and a broken wrist which hasn’t made things ideal!”
The former Sheffield man is impressed with the lineup the Bears promotion have put together, “I saw the lineup the other evening and I thought wow but I’m going to go out there with every intention of getting as far as I can and you never know what might happen on the night. It would be awesome to make the final!”
The meeting is sure to be a close, entertaining encounter with MacDonald joined by his compatriot Jake Allen whilst other challengers for the title include, (but are not limited to!) Charles Wright, Chris Harris, Erik Riss and Luke Becker.
