Aussie racer Jaimon Lidsey says he’s loving life in Manchester after defying a broken collarbone to make a solid start to his British career.

The two-time Australian Under-21 champion made his full-time European bow in Poland in 2018, racing for Second Division side Rawicz – a feeder club for PGE Ekstraliga champions Leszno.

It was a move that paid off and, after winning the Victoria State Championship during the summer Down Under, he secured the visa he needed to join the Aces.

His season started far from smoothly after breaking his collarbone before he headed to Europe in early March.

But Lidsey shook off the injury to score seven paid eight points at Peterborough and four paid five in his home debut against the Panthers.

After getting a taste of the National Speedway Stadium shale when he served as Australia’s under-21 reserve in the 2018 Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations, Lidsey is glad to be racing more regularly in Manchester this year.

He said: “This is a great club and the track is just awesome. I rode here a little bit last year and I loved it, and it feels great to be back here on a full-time basis riding for the Aces this season.

“I made some good progress back home in Aussie. I won my state championship, I won the under-21 national title and I feel I had a pretty good run in the senior solo championships too.

“Unfortunately I broke my collarbone but it’s only a very small step backwards. It feels pretty good at the minute and I’m confident it’ll be fully healed for the season ahead.”
