Round four of the Revo British Motocross Championship powered by Gulf Race Fuels saw the team venture into Kent to line up at the Canada Heights site of the Sidcup & District club.
The MX1 practice was difficult for Stuart who was trying to get a fast lap, he made a few mistakes which cost him although he still managed a fourteenth fastest time. It was something he knew he could improve on in races. Martin was not on his favorite terrain, with a super soft and fast track. That said, he still managed to post a strong seventh-place finish in qualifying. In MX2, Jamie left him towards the end of the session to rank among the ten fastest riders. That helped Jack Lindsay, who took a tow from Jamie on the same lap and gained some positions to go to the twenty-first gate pick.
In the first MX1 race, Stuart trailed off the start leaving him around twelfth, then fell on turn two. Having managed to straighten the bike out after the accident, Stuart went from dead last to pass nearly half the field for fifteenth place. Martin had a good gate position; he had a decent start and finished fourteenth, after making some early passes he put his head down and passed a few more runners to finish ninth at the flag.
In the first MX2 race Jamie was unlucky, coming up the start straight he was picked up by riders who had crashed leaving him stuck and had to head towards the back of the peloton . After digging deep, he was able to pass fifteen riders to finish thirteenth at the flag on the tight circuit. Jack had got off to a good start in the top ten, although he crashed shortly after and couldn’t make it to his machine as the riders were still riding past. Undeterred, Jack battled at the back to move up half a dozen places, although he still finished outside the points in 28and.
Second race MX1 Martin Barr had a good start, sitting in seventh position for the entire race. The heat and recent bouts of fatigue that Martin has experienced certainly meant that it wasn’t easy and he couldn’t attack. Using his experience and knowledge of the track, he kept his head down and took a solid seventh place and finished seventh overall on the day. Stuart again suffered as he was dragged down the start straight, he then made a few mistakes including stalling the bike and looping it around a corner which lost him a number of places. After managing to refocus, Stuart was able to get to work and pass several riders for eighth at the flag and ninth overall for the day. Martin is now tenth in the MX1 championship with Stuart fourteenth.
The second MX2 race was a similar story for Jack, he had a strong start that left him fourteenth for the opening lap, then had a crash that dropped him in the order outside the top 20. With the heat and the mishaps, Jack couldn’t push, only gaining a few places due to riders dropping out of the race. Jack finished the weekend without a score in 26th position. Jamie had gotten off to a good start in the top ten, setting consistent lap times throughout the race. Jamie was close to seventh place, but unable to pass on the twists and turns of a line from the Canada Heights track. Jamie crossed the finish line for ninth place in the race and overall. Jamie now sits fourth in the Championship, with Jack in 25and.
