BRANDAN Coglan wants to race speedway professionally overseas and if the results he is achieving now is anything to go by he will surely reach those heights.

The 12-year-old Walkervale student won the under-16 Speedway Solo Title at the weekend.

Brandan was the second highest points scorer in the lead-up to the final and his aggressive riding style saw him come from behind to lead the last two laps and claim the Queensland Championship.

This was not the first time Brandan had won the state title - he was victorious in 2010 as the youngest ever to win the state title and he said he had a plan going into the deciding race.

"My dad, Peter, asked me if I wanted a bit of room because the track was small and pretty hectic," Brandan said.

"I went with gate four and thought if we all left the tape together I would cut up the inside coming out of the first turn and take the lead.

"But I cut back under Brody Eaves from Townsville on turn two in the last two laps to take the chequered flag."

Brandan got his first motorbike when he was seven and he liked the speed and jumping but when his father and uncle Reg built him a speedway bike he was hooked.

Brandan is now seeded in the 2013 Australian U16 individual and teams championships at Mildura in December.
