congratulates 2009 Scholarship Recipient RICK OLSON for winning the
Well Done Rick – we are all proud of you!


Rick overcame a slow and nervous start to the 2009 season to win every round from Queensland Raceway, wrapping up the title at Phillip Island with an emphatic win to be a clear overall Championship winner with a 70.5 points buffer over 2nd place.

Rick becomes the first Reece Bancell Scholarship winner to be an Australian Champion in the Scholarship year and showed what a future champion he will be!!

Rick commented, “To win the 600 Superstock Championship is a really proud moment for me. I would like to give a big thanks to everyone, but especially to be selected as the recipient of the Reece Bancell Scholarship, as without the Scholarship this year, it would have been so much harder for us to achieve this goal.

Congratulations to 2009 Reece Bancell Scholarship winner Ryan Dymond and best of luck in 2010.

I would also like to give a big thanks to Yamaha for producing a great bike in the R6, Marty Dowd and his team for all the hard work they put in fixing and preparing the bike as well as Frank Pons for the great suspension and tips at the tracks. My Mum and sister Jacquie, brother Matthew, Nan and Grandad for all their support, my Dad and my mechanic Jamie Plumb who has always helped me since I first started racing.

Also a special thank you to all the sponsors and supporters of the Reece Bancell Scholarship for providing me with fantastic products, equipment and support, I am so glad I have been able to re-pay everyone with this Championship – thank you all”
