Sam Nunn lands at Chambers Racing, although Grimshaw moves on.

After riding with the Chambers crew as part of the VMXdN Foxhill Team JMR 101 squad in the Wright Engineering National Team Race class, which he won individually to lead them to the team victory, Sam Nunn rocked up at Weston with a sweet black Chambers GASGAS sporting the familiar #365.

For the purposes of the race, they had to quickly stick an equally-pro-looking number four over the three, as he could only get #465 due to his late entry. Although he raced a 450 at Weston, he will stay in MX2 for 2024 as he is still only 20 years old and has plenty of time to move up to the 450 in the future. It’s uncertain if they will run GASGAS or Husqvarna machinery as the team are not tied to any one manufacturer, and have used a mixture of the two this season.

The team were very happy with his race: “Sam made his debut in style with his lap times being consistent and below 10 minutes for the entire 3-hour race, and he bagged himself P5 at the flag!”

Sam said this after wiping away the sand:

“I’m looking forward to being under the Chambers awning next year. First race on the bike at Weston went well with a 5th place which I was pleased with, probably one of the hardest races I’ve done as the track was so gnarly! I can’t wait to get the new season underway, and thanks to the whole team for their support.”

It wasn’t his first rodeo though, as he has won at Weston in the Youth classes on four different occasions! Here’s a cheeky snap we found from 2016, just for fun!

It’s 2016 and a 13-year-old Sam Nunn has won the BW85 class at Weston.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Tom Grimshaw is leaving the team, to go where isn’t known yet. Tom’s father David had this to say on social media:

“We have had an amazing four years racing for Tim Chambers, (legend) & Chambers Racing.  Tim has provided Tom with a solid platform to become a top British Championship rider over those years, however all good things come to an end with Tom moving on for 2024 & beyond. We cannot thank Tim enough for his support and all the journeys we have had together.”
