Clarke sticks his ASA United Gas Gas on the box at Lyng!
The team were back in action at the weekend! With our full roster of Professional Adult Pilots heading to the sands of Norfolk for Round 2 of the British Championship in Lyng, we were excited to see how the team would continue to build from the first round in Culham!

Starting off with the #511 Machine of Steven Clarke onboard the MC250f in the MX2 class; Steven was able to put his GasGas on the box after two strong performances, spearheading the ASA United assault in the Pro MX2 Class and finishing with a 3rd Overall!
“Solid weekend at Round 2! Definitely a big step in the right direction with a third overall (with tied points for second). I’m starting to feel like my old self finally and I know a win is just on the horizon. Big thanks to the team and all of our sponsors!”

Bobby Bruce continues to impress in the MX2 Class! Despite the difference in horsepower, Bruce packs a punch with his MC125 as he goes 12/15 for 14th Overall! Bobby’s potential is obvious… it does not take an expert to realise that he is doing something truly special on that 125, and the team are looking forward to seeing what he can do in the EMX125 series in the coming months.
Our final MX2 Rider, Tom Murphy is still slugging it out in his Rookie season in the Pro MX2 Class! As Tom continues to get used to the pace of the Best of British, we have every faith that he will persist with his training and build on his existing foundation of talent! 28th Overall, with a 24th in the second moto, we are sure the #74 will be looking for a Top 20 in the not-so-distant future!
Representing ASA United GASGAS in the MX1 Class, our SX Specialist Jack Brunell showed some awesome speed, however, did not have the best of luck!
“Good day racing, P17 in Race 1 despite a bad start. I came through and was pretty happy with that race. Race 2 I got a better start but slipped off in the first lap. So, I had to come through again and made some good passes before I got into 18th. I was feeling good and then slipped of three times in three corners… so that was that race done. Thank you to the team and brothers for helping out, I still had a fun weekend!”
All-in-all, it’s been a constructive weekend for the team! Every meeting is a learning curve in its own right, and we are confident all of our riders will come away from Lyng knowing what it is they need to work on to progress!
Our eyes are now firmly fixed on the future; with the opening round of the MX Nationals at FatCats coming up this weekend, swiftly followed by Rnd. 3 of the British at Canada Heights, we’re definitely moving into a busy period of the season. But, this is what we have been waiting and working for so we’re excited to see what the next few rounds hold in store!
