Brodie Waters is proving over and over again he has what it takes to get to the top in motorcycle racing.

After starting riding dirt bikes at just four years old, Brodie soon progressed to a 60cc and quickly displayed his talent with second place in the Australian Long Track Championship as a 10-year-old. 

From there he went on to earn five national and six state titles in the dirt, making the switch to road racing in 2008 and capturing the Australian 250GP-Mono Championship in his rookie season – developing the bike and working as an apprentice on the factory Honda Australia team. Brodie was then rewarded with a position in the All-Japan Road Race Championships at the end of the season, impressing with his determination and off-track manner.

2009 saw Brodie step up to the 600cc Supersport class for the first time on a Honda CBR600RR under the GHR Racing banner. A 12th place finish in the series against the factory teams was the end result with a best place of seventh in the final round, displaying his clear potential for 2010.

Brodie finished third in the national championship in 2010, his highlight coming at Hidden Valley Raceway in the Northern Territory when he won his first ever Supersport race. In total, Waters finished in the top three on 10 separate occasions during the 13-race season. 

Also in 2010, Brodie won the prestigious Suzuka 4 Hours endurance event in Japan for Moriwaki Racing after claiming pole position, becoming the first ever international to win on debut and gifting Moriwaki a fourth win in succession. 
2011 saw Brodie join the factory backed Team Suzuki road racing squad.  Brodie raced the 5 round Australian Supersport Championship and the results came down to the final race with Brodie ending the season in 2nd place.  In 2011 Brodie also raced in the Australian Prosport 1000cc Challenge for Team Suzuki.  Entered in only 3 of the 4 races, Brodie's consistent front running form ending with 2nd place for the season.
In 2012 Brodie has again raced with Team Suzuki.  An action packed final round saw the Championship slip from his grasp.  After being fastest in practice and claiming pole a mechanical issue shattered the hope of the team taking the Championship in 2012 and having to settle for 3rd place.
Brodie is currently in the UK racing with Hampshire Motorcycle Racing Team on a newly build GSZR-600 for the final 3 rounds of the British Supersport Championship.  Brodie returns home after these BSB commitments to race at the Philip Island Moto GP and the Philip Island 8 hour for Team Suzuki Racing Australia.
