Wade Kirkland will not make the trip as an MX2 wildcard.

With the MXD class now on a mid season break, Dylan Wills will make the long trip to Perth as a solo rider. Kirkland had considered making the trip before the team decided it would be a good chance for him to stay behind to focus on school and training.
Wanneroo will mark the last round before Wills also goes on break. He will use the deep sand as an opportunity to keep him in good stead for the championship.
“I’m looking forward to Wanneroo! Chris Woods and I came home between rounds and we’ve been out testing and found an awesome base setting for the sandy conditions,” he said.
“We’ll have a good base to start with for Saturday practice sessions, and we’ll use our time wisely there to make the bike better again.
“I’m just looking forward to going racing with the team again and going out there and doing battle with the boys. Hopefully we can finish off the first half of the year with a good result.”
