A WIRRAL motocross enthusiast is racing to the top of his game, having claimed an impressive 33 trophies just seven months after his first ride.

Seven-year-old Harvey Jackson, from Bromborough, took his first venture in to the world of motocross in April after having a go on a friend’s bike.

From then on, Harvey fell in love with the sport, winning his first championship - the CNWSSC (Cheshire Northwest Schoolboy Scramble Club) Autos Championship 2015 - a staggering 192 points in front.

Mum Joanne said: “He’s done absolutely amazing, we’re so proud of him.

“He started in April when he was six and turned seven at the end of the summer. He’d never rode before and he just took to it.

“He hasn’t had any training and most of those he is competing against have been doing it for ages and had a lot of training.

“But there aren’t any nearby and Harvey would have to have time off school. They’re expensive too.”

Woodslee Primary School pupil Harvey has raced for a number of north west teams including Newton-le-Willows, BSMA and White Rose.

Joanne explained how Harvey’s passion for motocross started: “One of his friends had a little motorbike. Harvey had a go on it and just took to it.”

His parents bought him his own bike – which then had to be upgraded - but he didn’t ride it for six months.

It was only when Joanne found out that Harvey was able to enter races at six-years-old that his motocross journey finally began.

“He went in for his first race and just loved it,” said Joanne.

While the season is over, Harvey is keen to continue with the sport and Joanne hopes to enter him in to a number of events over the winter months to help him keep to his winning ways.

But as with all sports, things can be a little expensive and mum-of-three Joanna is appealing for local businesses to help with Harvey’s sponsorship.

“Birkenhead Roofing have donated £200 towards his new bike and any sponsorship would be really appreciated and would help Harvey to continue.”
