Luke Williamson and Liam Brosnan will open the throttle in their race for summer series glory tomorrow.

The local starlets have made a fine start to the fiercely-competitive junior section of the Portsmouth Motocross Club championship.

After two rounds, Petersfield talent Williamson, nine, is second only to pace-setter Ryan Tanner.

Meanwhile, Wickham racer Brosnan is fifth – just 33 points adrift of his pal.

And there is plenty of time for the speedsters to rise to the top.

Tomorrow’s showdown at the West Meon Circuit is only the third weekend of the 15-round championship.

And it follows hot on the heels of the rearranged second round which took place over the same course last Sunday.

Williamson, who recently pipped Brosnan to the Future West British Supercross Auto Championship crown, bagged 113 points for finishing fourth out of 35 that day.

The impressive performance propelled his summer series tally to 240 points after he celebrated second spot behind Tanner in the 37-runner first round at Foxholes, near Salisbury.

Brosnan trails Williamson – but not by much.

He added to an opening-round sixth – which bagged him 105 points – with seventh at West Meon last weekend.

Brosnan now has a total of 207 points in the race for the title.

Williamson rides a Metrakit bike in the 60cc geared junior class, while Brosnan is on a KTM.

After tomorrow’s muddy mission, the championship will move on to Bere Regis, Marshfield and Winterbourne Gunner next month.

The young racers are also set to call in at Grittenham, Whitings Water and Culham Motopark, before the competition climaxes on its return to the West Meon Circuit on Sunday, September 30.
