Stark Future´s Jack Brunell is quietly confident after his emotional win in Manchester. Eager to sustain his winning momentum, Brunell has his eyes firmly set on more podium success. Not only does he arrive with a victory under his belt, but he also boasts the points lead sitting 3 points clear of Conrad Mewse.

“Training has been good,” commented Brunell. “Last week we spent a day in France testing our suspension and we made some changes which was good. We were also training at the Stark Future Test facility in Barcelona and had another solid day there. It was great all of us riding together. This week I also went to Holland and was riding at a track in Goes which was really good practice for the Arenacross. Since Manchester I have had some solid days riding and testing I am now looking forward to going into the weekend strong with the boys and keeping that red plate!”

Justin Bogle, currently 10th in the general standings following a solid debut in Manchester is happy to have had more bike-time ahead of the forthcoming round. With some fine-tuning during testing, the Oklahoma rider is feeling even more comfortable with his VARG and is revved up and ready for the 2 back to back rounds in Belfast.

Bogle: “It´s been a solid week here in Barcelona. Getting ready for the 3rd round of Arenacross, we have been doing a lot of testing and riding here in Spain with the boys this week. A lot of testing and refinement, suspension and bike-wise. A little bit more time on the bike for me is a big positive coming into Manchester I didn´t have that much time on the bike so I look forward to going out there and battling up front.”

After facing challenges in his opening campaign, Eddie Wade is determined to bounce back, aiming to improve on the Manchester position he picked up two weekends ago. With a renewed focus, following a solid few days of riding at Stark Futures’ training facility in Barcelona, Wade is eager to showcase what he and the VARG can do.

“After having a solid week with the Team out in Spain”, said Wade, “I got a good base setting on the suspension test we did on the last day, which is giving me a lot of confidence around a new supercross track having a new bike, and just having some tips on how to get around the supercross track, opening it up quite a bit, and doing laps faster and safer than I was before. I´m looking forward to the next round in Belfast, it should feel a lot better than in Manchester as I wasn´t feeling great despite getting better throughout the day, but looking forward to Belfast, some big improvements, and big steps made forward.”

Looking to carry the Red plate to Round 5 in Aberdeen, Stark Future Racing team are excited to get back to racing and are looking to turn even more heads as they head into Rounds 3 and 4 this weekend
