 Max Fricke got the 5th place and Jack Holder 9th in the Individual Australian Championship. Four-round series was won by Sam Masters. In this year's championship, it was the U21 world champion, who coped better. In three rounds, Fricke presented some great speedway, especially in Mildura and Undera, where he got the second and third position.


After three rounds, he was ex aequo classified with Davey Watt at 3rd position, losing only 4 points to 2nd. In the last round however, Fricke started not so well (engine's failure in his first heat), that cost him lack of promotion to the final heats and ultimately ended with
8 points gathered. That put him out to the 5th position and in the general classification he was 3 points away from the rostrum.

It was even worse for the younger of Holder brothers - Jack. In two first rounds he was 9th and in Undera, Jack got through to the final phase and with 10 points, ended as 5th. The worst performance came in the final round (Kurri Kurri), where with 2 falls and 3 points reached, meeting was over for him.

- It all went in a totally opposite way to what Iexpected . It should've been way better, but it's water under the bridge right now. After the crash, I still feel hand's pain, but it's nothing serious - Jack Holder said.

Even though we still have winter in Europe, fourth rider of last year's FIM Speedway U21 World Championship can't wait for upcoming speedway season.

- It's gonna be a huge year for me. I'm making a big step forward and will be racing in thetop leagues. I'm really excited - said 21 y.o. rider.
