Waters Puts MD250H On The Winner’s Podium At Oran Park

Brodie WatersTeenager Brodie Waters had a highly successful outing at the first round of the MRRDA in the 125GP class on his new Honda powered Moriwaki MD250H four-stroke machine.

Fifteen-year-old Waters outclassed the competition in each of the three races held at New South Wales’ Oran Park on the weekend, leading the first and third stoushes from start to finish.

Although a technical problem in race two slowed the apprentice mechanic down to an eventual sixth place, his extraordinary performance was enough to claim top honours for the day.

“I expected to go pretty well at Oran Park against the GP125cc machines but did not expect to take the win,” the Victorian based rider said on his efforts which have now put him on the top of the leader’s board.

“After that problem in the second race, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off, but we made the right tyre choice in the final race and that meant I could pull away towards the end of the race as the track dried out.”

Waters will be racing in all rounds of the MRRDA, as well as in the Australian Superbike Championship series where the MD250’s will be scored as a separate class.

“We’re back at the workshop now preparing for this weekend’s round at Mallala,” he said.

“This year, I’m going to work hard on my racing and continue to work for Paul Free (Motologic) who also provides me technical support at each race,” Brodie said.

Midori Moriwaki, owner of Moriwaki Engineering headquartered in Japan also made the trip over to Australia to attend the first round of the series and see the MD250H in action.

According to Paul Free, Midori wanted to show her company’s support of the series, and junior racing in particular.

“Midori said she was incredibly impressed with the way in which Australian families get together to support each other to ensure the series is enjoyable for everyone involved.”

“We were thrilled to have her in attendance, just as we are thrilled with the way the bike is performing.
