A schoolboy to make Grand Prix history in Malaysia

A 15-year-old schoolboy will become the youngest Australian to race in a Motorcycle Grand Prix when he makes his debut in world competition in Malaysia this weekend. Josh Waters has taken two weeks off from his year 10 studies at Merbein Secondary College in Mildura, in the state of northern Victoria, to compete in the 125cc race at the Gauloises Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix and then the SKYY VODKA Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix one week later. Waters will be just 15 years and 262 days when he races at Sepang – three days younger than compatriot Casey Stoner was when he made his debut at Donington last year.

´School know that racing comes first, and they´ve been really supportive´ said Waters. ´I´ll just have to catch up when I get home. I'm a bit nervous about Malaysia as I´ve never ridden at the Sepang circuit´.
