Brett Metcalfe says he’ll be ‘on the attack’ tomorrow night at Wollongong’s third round of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship as he seeks redemption from an admittedly disappointing home race in Port Adelaide.

The Penrite Honda Racing challenger has displayed strong form throughout the opening two rounds of the series, however a pair of crashes in both Brisbane and Port Adelaide have ultimately denied him of landing on the podium.

The South Australian is looking to turn his fortunes around at WIN Stadium tomorrow night, where he’ll bring an aggressive approach to the fast-paced triple crown format on offer.

“Adelaide didn’t work out very well for me, and that was really disappointing being my hometown race,” Metcalfe admitted to “It was a struggle to get back up and going the week after because it was really disappointing.

“I’m looking forward to Wollongong, the track is full-sized and I think we’re going to get a really good crowd. I’m looking to get a little bit of redemption, but I’m going to focus on having a good result at the end of the night even though it’s a triple crown format, which are three races that will hold their own story.

“I’m going to try and be on the attack, be aggressive and go for it. I can’t try and think consistent results or whatever, I’ve just got to go for it.”

Metcalfe sits fourth in the championship standings, six points behind CDR Yamaha Monster Energy duo Dan Reardon and Luke Clout, and 14 points behind teammate and series leader Justin Brayton (Penrite Honda Racing).
