Chloe aims for the podium at her first Go Girls Series

SIXTEEN-year-old Warwick State High School student Chloe Fitzgerald will compete in her first Go Girls Series meet this weekend and is expecting nothing less than a podium finish.

The Go Girls Series starts with a round at Queensland Motocross Park, Wyaralong, near Boonah.

There will be practice tomorrow and racing on Sunday.

Rounds will also be held at Roma, Hervey Bay and Coolum.

She has been competing in the sport for seven years.

Fitzgerald has been a regular in junior competition but has graduated to the senior ranks this year.

Last Sunday, she was at weekly practice with 65 fellow club members at the Warwick club track at Morgan Park.

For the past two years she has won the award for top woman in the club and hopes to transfer that success to the Go Girls Series.

"I am in the best form of my career and am hoping for a podium finish on Sunday," she said.

"I want to do all four rounds of the series."

Fitzgerald enjoys the adrenalin rush of motocross.

"The adrenalin hits in when the starter puts up the five-seconds to go board. I have improved my starts a lot."

Many of the men from the Warwick club will compete in a support class to Go Girls this weekend including her boyfriend Clay Kilvington and brother Tyron Fitzgerald.

The club track will be closed this Sunday for maintenance, one of only a handful of Sundays when practice is not scheduled.
