Thank you AE Smith for your sponsorship. Without the support of my family, friends and generous sponsors like you, it wouldn’t be possible for me to race and chase my dream

Lachlan Kavney has been riding motorcycles since the age of 3. His family could not afford to race, but he grew up riding 2 stroke motocross bikes up until the age of 18.

Now 23 and based in Brisbane, Lachlan’s racing form granted him one of only two Wildcard spots at last year’s Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island in the Moto3 Class.

No mean feat; Lachlan was the only Wildcard rider to make it into the World Championship Moto3 Race.

Lachlan’s track to success was brought to the attention of AE Smith by close family friend Chris Perry, an experienced Technician with the Brisbane Service AE Smith team.

“I’ve known Lachlan since he was a baby and it’s been a real joy to see him grow up and explore his racing potential. Despite Lachlan having the most underpowered bike, he’s still managing race wins, fastest laps and lap records. Taking second spot in last year’s Australian Championship is only the beginning,” boasted Chris.

“Thank you AE Smith for your sponsorship. Without the support of my family, friends and generous sponsors like you, it wouldn’t be possible for me to race and chase my dream,” said Lachlan.

Lachlan Kavney races a Honda NSF 250 in the Superlites categories as well as a Bultaco Pursang 250 in Period 4 250.

At just over 5ft tall and not much over 50kg, it has been said that Lachlan is genetically engineered to race motorcycles!
