Rising stars flock to Maismore! All British Motocross Championships – Race Report and Results

by adminAugust 8, 2018

Many a top line Motocross star has come through the ranks and been part of the famous All British Motocross championships. In recent years the Severn Valley Motocross Club have work wonders to put the event well and truly on the UK Motocross map with heaps of young and established talent lining up for the 2018 staging.

One of the unique aspects of the meeting, is that it is hosted at the fantastic Maismore circuit in Gloucestershire which is only used just once per year for this very event.

The track is a mixture of old school off cambered corners and hills, with an added modern twist, to give a great variety for those taking part, and whats more the club did a fantastic job and kept the dust down in the hot conditions.

Starting with the Mini maestros and the Auto class, it was a fabulous weekend for Olly Waters who stormed to 4 race wins from the 5 moto’s to land the title.  His only blip was in race 3 when he finished down the order, but his points haul was enough to take him over the line. Consistency across the board for Matthew Morgan was enough to seal him second overall, whilst Logan Keane who won Moto 3, had a great weekend for third.

It was a full line up of 40 Juniors that stormed into the Maismore first corner, and coming out the other side with a tremendous overall victory was Swedish based Freddie Bartlett (whose Dad Seb used to race in this very meeting).  Bartlett was untouchable winning each and every race ahead of normal front runner Freddie Gardiner who rode excellently all weekend for second. Ollie Bubb was third in each and every race and aptly awarded him with third overall with Kenzie Cole riding well for 4th.

Barring a last race mishap Ben Mustoe blitzed the Small Wheel 85 class with four races wins on his way to the overall. Jake Randall ended the weekend with a race win, and put in a strong performance throughout for second, whilst Lewis Roden edged out George Hopkins for third.

Another full line up was in the Big Wheel 85’s and the race for the title was anything but clear cut with just 4 points separating the top 3. Alfie Jones made life hard for himself after opening his account with 3 moto wins, but a low scoring fourth ride meant the pressure was on going into the final moto. Billy Duke was in the hot seat as the 5th and final moto launched into action, and held a two point lead over Jones, with Ethan Sills another 2 points further behind. Jones was in no mood to lose the title though, and beat his rivals to take the title, two points ahead of Duke who finished third in the final moto, behind Sill’s in second who finished third overall.

The 125’s had the biggest representation in the Senior group and it was Aaron Colley who railed his 2 stroke to a faultless 5 wins from 5 to take the coveted All British title.  Ben Watkins piled up the points for second in the 125’s with Keelan Southwood third.

Josh Greedy was in the mood for winning in the Senior Open’s, and with four victories to his name and one third he took to the top step of the podium with a 10 point gap over second placed Marshall Smith, with Tommi Davies in third.

Harking back to the old days James Lane won out in the Vets class, ahead of Simon Lane in second, with SVSSC supremo Tim Trueman in third.

Moto 1 aside Dan Groves was in full control of the Novice class, speeding to 4 moto chequered flags to take the title ahead of Jack French and Mike Rudge.

The AMX and Open Adult classes attracted some of sports big names and in doing so provided a feast of great racing. Dan Thornill was a class above in the Open class, and the Maxxis British Championship’s rider cleared the board with 5 moto wins on his way to the title.  Jenson Day was in line for second after day one but, he was a no show on the Sunday and it was Shane Carless who took the number 2 spot ahead of the hard charging Josh Taylor in third and young gun Jayden Murphy in 4th.

You needed a hammer and chisel to prise the top three of the AMX class apart at the end of the 5 moto’s with all of them being tied on 207 points.  Luke Dean, fresh back from injury topped the podium courtesy of having two moto’s win’s whilst second placed Jack Timms and third place finisher Matt Ridgway both failed to take the chequered flag.  A rider to win moto’s though was Corie Southwood, who avenged his poor start to the meeting with three race wins to finish his weekend and 4th overall.

In conclusion it was another tremendous effort by the Severn Valley club and their band of helpers for putting the All British Motocross Championship well and truly on the map when it comes to primetime motocross in the UK. Roll on 2019.

The club would like to thank all of their sponsors for their support and helping them make it happen. They are..
