Humble Dominates Start of 2021/22 Season



Aaron Humble is off to a blistering start this season with a 50 percent win rate in A-mains across tracks in the North Island of New Zealand. In his Suzuki GSX-R 750cc powered Harris chassis, Humble has cemented his place as one of the top dogs in the New Zealand TQ Midget ranks.

Humble started off his season by winning the Dusty Rhodes Memorial at Meeanee Speedway, Napier, in commanding fashion. This was followed by a green-to-checkered victory at Western Springs Speedway in Auckland on the 4th of January. Utilizing the winning momentum, Humble put the 46a Yale machine back into victory lane at the Meeanee Speedway 25 lap A-main on the 15th of January.

The last win at Meeanee was the scheduled weekend to hold the New Zealand TQ Championship, the most prestigious race in the over 50-year-old class. Unfortunately, Covid-19 restrictions forced the New Zealand Speedway governing body to cancel all national meetings in the 2021/22 season, although one thing is for sure; if it had gone ahead then Humble would have been at the forefront of competitors in with a shot to win.

We spoke to Aaron about his early season success: 

“Me and the team are happy with how the season is tracking. The car is rapid, and I’ve never felt better physically, so we have a great package. I’m pleased that I’ve been able to pick up some early wins, the team give me a great car every night and they deserve to be in victory lane. I’ve been incredibly lucky to have my great sponsors come back on board and support me this year. I’m just happy that my team and sponsors are getting the results they deserve”

The team here at RaceFit have been working with Aaron closely for over a year now and have seen vast improvements in his body composition, fitness, strength, and muscular endurance. We adopted a structural balance approach when beginning work with Aaron. We aimed to build a solid foundation and reinforce key movement patterns before moving into targeting weak areas and focusing on a more motorsport specific approach such as neck stability, grip strength and anti-rotational core stability. Cardiovascular exercise was also a key component of training to get Aaron to where he is today. In addition to increasing his cardiovascular fitness, we also regularly used interval training to mimic the conditions of a typical TQ feature race.

After seeing all the hard work Aaron has put in, even throughout the covid lockdowns, we are stoked to see him dominating the North Island TQ Midget ranks. Are you looking at making a positive change for your race fitness? Get in touch today and see how we can help guide you on the path to success.
