Sports Sponsorship

For everyone who doesn’t know me, my name is Tony Festa and I am the Director at 1300 Locate Pty Ltd.

One of my passions is Motorcross (MX) racing. I have 2 boys that race MX at Glenfern Park Kilcoy and Suncoast JMC and I love spending time there watching my boys compete and forming lifelong friendships with the other kids and parents who share this passion.

Over the last few years I have watched some kids develop into very talented riders. However, it can become very expensive to be involved in this sport. Unfortunately this cost can force some parents to make the decision to no longer pursue their child’s riding career.

1300 Locate and a few other companies with whom we share close associations (Giorgio Mechanical, Timms Haulage and Alterego Elite Fitness), along with Brisbane Motorcycles in Caboolture, helped to form a race team: 1300 Locate Racing.

1300 Locate Racing invited riders Jeremy Lobb, Rhys Cutter and Riley Cutter along with my own boys, Christien Festa and Zac Festa, to ride under the 1300 Locate Racing banner.

We then approached Dan Reardon, Australian international rider (122) who also trains Matt Moss (current Australian MX champion) and his brother Jake Moss, to help train the boys in technique and fitness.

To date we have had a lot of fun and a few of injuries, but all the riders are showing very encouraging signs and improving dramatically.

The team races at Kilcoy MX and Coolum MX clubs, as well as the Shell Series and SEQ Series. This year we will have at least four riders taking out podium finishes from C Grade to A Grade in both clubs, and perhaps we may even see a podium in the SEQ series.

If you would like to keep up with the progress of the riders or just check out photos of the boys and their racing, log into the ‘1300 Locate Racing’ Facebook page and browse photos of all of the race events – or keep an eye on this site for photos to be added.

To finish up, I would like to thank all the parents who have their children involved in Motorcross and the money, time, effort and commitment they give to their children and the sport.

To the many volunteers who do flag marshalling, canteens, track preparation, stewarding, tower, gates and organising of club raffles etc – there are too many to mention but you all know who you are – many thanks for making us all feel welcome and for all of the unpaid hours you put into the sport.

To all our riders aged 9 to 17 and their parents, who put in time and effort week in and week out, keep up the good work. Success is not given, it is earned!

Finally, a big thank you from 1300 Locate Racing and 1300 Locate Pty Ltd and to all of our sponsors. Thank you for your support!
