WTR will field a local rider in the 125cc class this weekend, owing to a virus which has laid up World Championship regular Stefano Bianco.

16 year-old Glenn Scott, the 1998 Junior Dirt Track champion in Australia, will be the last minute stand in, and the youngster has a very special mentor in newly crowned MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner.

Scott has been under the wing of the 21 year-old as he has competed on the national scene, and rides for Team 27; an allusion to Stoner's current MotoGP number that the Australian will use until the end of the season before adopting the number one plate.
