Returning from a four-week suspension, Junee reinsman Cameron Hart is looking to make the most of the upcoming Rising Stars series.

The 18-year-old is part of the annual event which sees nine NSW young drivers, plus Western Australia’s Michael Ferguson compete.

The series starts at Young on Tuesday and Hart can’t wait for the experience.

“It should be a good week and I’m really looking forward to meeting new people and it should be good racing,” Hart said. “I’m just back from a four-week suspension so I’m excited to get back into it in this series.”

He rated Michael Hawke’s High Attitude his best chance.

“He seems like a nice enough horse and Michael Hawke does a really good job with his horses so hopefully he’s right on the night and we can get in the money.

In the second, far more even heat, he’ll drive Bettorbetbig for Young trainer Tony Turner.

He also has a drive on Shes Courageous for uncle Trevor White.

The series continues at Bathurst on Wednesday before stops at Penrith, Newcastle and then concludes at Menangle on Sunday.

Hart is one of two South West and Riverina drivers taking part.

Murrami reinsman Peter McRae is also involved.

Former Leeton driver Martelle Maguire is also part of the series, representing Metropolitan for the second year running.
