Team CPMX Racing Ltd ready for 2022!
After dipping his toes into the water and running a grass-roots team in the AMCA British Motocross Championship, Matt Chaplin has decided to go again in 2022 and now try to take it to the next level! Matt’s renewed ambition has been driven by his part purchase of the MDMX team set-up which in turn has resulted in the formation of CPMX Racing Ltd.

So with CPMX up and running, the first objective was to try and persuade sponsors to come on board. Matt was then to be pleasantly surprised by the backing received as Ci Sport, Motul UK, AMS Motorcycles, Cambrian Tyres, Muscle Doctor, GP Grafix and RNR Goggles all agreed to offer support. Nichol’s Crane Services also pushed forward some extra, very helpful financial funding to assist in the birth of CPMX.
With sponsors in place and the decision to use trusted KTM machinery, Matt could now offer the packages to the riders he wanted under the CPMX awning. So the team line-up for 2022 will be as follows…
26 Harry Linton- a very familiar name in the AMCA Championship and a rider who possesses blistering speed and an ultra-smooth style. Harry finished 8th in the 2021 series despite missing two rounds and is currently lying 3rd in the 2022 Acerbis Nationals standings.
19 Joe Russell- he finished 19th in 2021 despite not competing for a few seasons. Joe has shown great early season speed and is hoping to move up the MX2 standings in 2022.
101 Cameron Jackson- 18 years old, he is new to the AMCA and has already shown some impressive speed, picking up a few wins along the way.
49 Joe Jordan- 16 years old and also new to the AMCA scene, Joe has just started racing again after having knee surgery. At present he is putting in the hard work in a bid to ensure that come round one he will be race-ready.
38 William Bryson – He will be competing in local Youth events for 2022. William has a super smooth style and CPMX are hoping that he will be an AMCA Championship rider in the very near future.
The final team member is Matt Chaplin himself. Carrying the number 32 plate, Matt will be looking to lead by example and improve on his 9th place finish in the 2021 AMCA Vets Championship when he was hampered by a few DNF’s.
So it’s time to go AMCA Championship racing and with every rider in the CPMX team having already shown great commitment and enthusiasm towards the goals ahead, the future certainly looks bright for Matt Chaplin and his boys!
