Jaimon Lidsey (Born 27 February 1999)

I started riding motorbikes at the age of 4 but didn’t begin racing until I was 11. Highlights of my junior speedway career include winning Australian Championships in U16 125cc, 250cc, and 125cc Pairs between 2013 and 2016. In 2016 I graduated to the seniors with the goal of riding the international speedway circuit.

In 2018 I was crowned under 21 Australian Champion but unfortunately, I missed out on a top 3 finish in a state title to obtain a visa to race in the UK in 2018.


With different visa laws in place in Poland, I was offered a contract with Unia Leszno and raced with their second team, Stainer Unia Kolejarz Rawicz, in the 2018 Polish season. In my first season in Poland, Stainer Unia Kolejarz Rawicz made the playoffs and came third overall. I had a great season and finished as the number 1 points scorer in the team.


I finished 2018 winning the Victorian State championship and secured a visa for the 2019 UK season. In early 2019 I signed with Belle Vue Aces in the SGB Premiership League.


It was an honour to represent my country as the captain of the U21 Australian team in 2018 and 2019. In the same years, I was also selected as the under 21 reserve in the Speedway of Nations alongside World Champion Jason Doyle (2017) and U21 World Champion Max Fricke (2016).

After narrowly missing out on qualifying for the 2019 U21 World Championship I was granted a permanent wildcard in the 3 round event. At the end of the series, I was ranked 7th in the world. 

January 2020, I claimed my 3rd consecutive U21 Australian Championship title joining Leigh Adams, Chris Holder, Darcy Ward and Max Fricke as the only riders to achieve 3 in a row.

2020 is set to be a busy one, continuing with Unia Leszno/Stainer Unia Kolejarz Rawicz (Poland), Belle Vue Aces (UK), and Grindsted (Demark).
