Maxxis British MX Championships, Round 3 at Hawkstone Park, Shropshire
James was competing in the MX1 class and qualified in a good 15th place. Race 1 and James had a good start, only to make a few small mistakes and eventually end up 19th. Race 2 was better and James held 15th place for most of the race and finished in that position. 17th overall on track that James doesn’t favour and he now lies 17th in the championship. Worth noting that only 10 points separate James and 11th place in the championship, so all to play for with 5 round still remaining.
Dan has been on form lately and now fully recovered from his shoulder injury, was well up for Hawkstone Park, one of his favourite tracks. Race 1 and Dan had a great start in 10th place, only 2 lose a few places early and finish in a strong 13th place. Another decent start from Dan in race 2 saw him around 12th place on lap 1 and an eventual 14th place for a very good 13th overall. The points haul moved Dan to 18th in the championship.
Josh was competing in the MX2 class at Hawkstone Park, the first time he’s compete in an Adult British championship race after moving up from the Youth ranks last year. Qualifying went well and Josh didn’t look fazed by the challenge, posting a time in 25th place. The races were a different task though and Josh did well to complete both races and gain some experience for later on in the year. No points but a good effort and lots learnt.
Judd Racing Premier Cup
Corey Hockey maintained his great season in the Judd Racing Premier Cup 125cc class. He took an incredible 5 race wins out of 5 races and now holds a commanding 22 point lead in the championship.
Onto round 3 of the Michelin MX Nationals in Scotland this weekend.
