After six months of mud, sweat and gears, the destination of the 2023 AMCA British Motocross Championship titles have finally been decided. During the final round promoted by the Cheltenham Spa MXC and held on a Brookthorpe track that was super tacky and very raceable, there was to be hardly any major movements in the hunt for titles bar one very notable exception!!Read More
So, this is it then, as the four moto’s due to be contested at Brookthorpe this weekend will ultimately decide the destination of the 2023 AMCA British Motocross Championship titles. And, with a maximum of 200 points still on offer, mathematically it’s all still to play for!Read More
With quite a major contrast in weather conditions over the two days of the latest AMCA British Motocross Championship action held at Bromsberrow, it was to prove to be a stern test of a rider’s fitness levels and desire to succeed. On day one the entry was faced by a blue-sky scene with the mercury rapidly rising and creating energy sapping temperatures whilst day two although being cooler was then hit by a period of thundery rain which changed the dynamics of the track. Despite that inconsistent weather though, the racing throughout was red -hot with the organising Uley MXC doing a superb job in preparing a revamped circuit, so well done to them!Read More
It’s the penultimate round of the 2023 AMCA British Motocross Championship this weekend with the Uley MXC hosting the action at a revamped Bromsberrow circuit. There’s a total of four moto’s spread over two day’s for the riders to dispute as they go in search of that final glory.Read More
Martin Janes was at the super Bevercotes circuit on Sunday to send images from the latest Ollerton MXC event...
Lutzfluh in Switzerland was the venue for the final round of the IMBA Open Class European Championship on Sunday with just two Brits, Will Hughes (SRH Racing Husqvarna) and Henry Williams (Apex GasGas UK) able to make the journey. Those two lads though certainly gave it their absolute all and wore the AMCA Team Great Britain shirt with pride. Henry was to finish on the podium with a super 2nd overall whilst Will got home in a great 4th.Read More
Martin Janes was at Warmingham Lane on Sunday to send images from the opening day of a Middlewich MXC Bank Holiday double..
The combination of a Long Lane circuit running in reverse direction mixed with a nice sprinkling of ‘Wildcard riders’ and changing track conditions resulted in a very interesting round 6 of the AMCA British Motocross Championship on Sunday. That decision to go in the opposite direction proved popular with the riders, making the going more technical and a little slower. Those ingredients also meant that battles raged right throughout the day in most classes and created several very close finishes!!Read More
Martin Janes was at Lower Drayton on Sunday to send images from the home round of the IMBA European Open and MX2 Championship and Central Group action.
There’s another offering of European Championship motocross action at Lower Drayton in Staffordshire this coming Sunday, July 23rd as the Cannock MXC host the home round of the 2023 IMBA Open and MX2 series. And in an event proudly sponsored by FUS in conjunction with Marsh Powersports, Spiral GFX and Anja Potze Fine Jewellery Ltd, this IMBA will pioneer the first ever combined 450F/250F/2T moto’s. In a bid to boost start line numbers, this already appears to be a wise move with riders travelling to Lower Drayton from Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Holland and Switzerland to challenge a very strong GB contingent.Read More
Thanks to some natural watering alongside organised dampening of the surface, the Lower Drayton track was in great shape as the Stafford MXC hosted the home round of the 2023 IMBA European Ladies motocross Championship on Sunday. Team Great Britain fielded a 14 strong line-up for the challenge ahead and what a super performance they were to produce. Wildcard entry Grace Richards was to be the top GB Lady with a fantastic podium spot in 3rd. Also bagging big top ten overall placings were Marni Saunders (5th), Kathryn Booth (8th), Leah Rees-Evans (9th) and Caitlin Newman (10th).Read More
There’s European Championship motocross action this Sunday as the Stafford MXC host the home round of the 2023 IMBA Ladies MX series at Lower Drayton in Staffordshire. This will be the third in what is a four round series with action having already taken place in Holland and Austria. During the opening two rounds there’s been no participation from the Great Britain Ladies but they will be very determined to make amends as they compete on home soil!Read More
Again, proving its immense popularity, the iconic Hawkstone Park attracted a deluge of wildcard entries as the AMCA staged round 5 of their 2023 British Motocross Championship on Sunday. Not only did those riders boost the start line numbers but also add plenty of extra spice to the racing on offer. However, those wildcards did not have it all their own way with some of the AMCA classes producing a story of very much ‘as you were’ and similar finishing positions to the already completed rounds!Read More
