With just two weeks to go until the gates drop for the fourth round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean at Blaxhall Circuit on Sunday 2nd June. It is with great pleasure that the Woodbridge and DMCC club are able to announce the additional support from Steve Lumley Planing Ltd alongside the existing sponsors SMT GB and Foxwood Trade.

This is the fifth year that local road planing company Steve Lumley Planing Ltd, a keen supporter of both two and four wheeled Motorsport in the area has once again stepped forward to help support both the event and the Woodbridge DMCC with the supply of over 100 tonnes of Road Planings.

Steve Lumley Planing Limited specialises in Road Planing operations within the East Anglia region, from the north coast of Norfolk, through Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and into Hertfordshire. Based in the market town of Bury St Edmunds, the operating depot is perfectly located adjacent to the A14 trunk road, thus enabling the road planing equipment to be moved to most parts of East Anglia with ease, and in the quickest possible time.

This kind support has allowed the Woodbridge Club to continue the ongoing improvements to the facilities at the Blaxhall circuit. The road planings have been used to make access to the venue a much smoother process and allowing for the continued resurfacing of existing roadways at the venue.

The Blaxhall Circuit near Woodbridge is signposted off the A12 using the postcode IP17 1LG. Admission prices are £20 for adults and £5 for children aged 5-15 with a family ticket £45. Practice starts at 9am with the first race of the day at 11.00am.

Woodbridge and DMCC are pleased to announce the return of the Foxwood Trade Holeshot Award at Round 4 of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean at Blaxhall on Sunday 2nd June thanks to the continued support of local company Foxwood Trade.

Foxwood Trade is a branch of Foxwood Ceramics which opened in 2018 and are based in Kesgrave near Ipswich. The established local family business offers an extensive and imaginative range of wall and floor tiles at Trade prices. Foxwood Trade is owned by former motocross rider Matt Cottrell, who has long been a supporter of the Woodbridge Club and father of former European and British Championship rider James Cottrell.

For the 2019 event the Holeshot Award will once again help to increase the excitement of the most spectacle part of the race, the start. With forty of the best Motocross riders from the UK and Europe battling it out in both the MX1 and MX2 classes, the extra incentive of a Cash Prize of £100 per race is sure to increase the importance of the start for the riders. Also for 2019 if a rider in either the MX1 or MX2 class secures both Holeshot Awards they will receive an additional £100 Cash Prize making it £300 for a double Holeshot.

Speaking of behalf of the Woodbridge and DMCC, Richard Blyth mentioned that “It is great to be able to work with a local company such as Foxwood Trade for a fifth year running. Foxwood Trade and Foxwood Ceramics have been involved in the event from the beginning and The Holeshot Award has been a great success for both the riders and the spectators and we hope that it will once again help increase the excitement for the crowd when the gate drops on June 2nd at Blaxhall.”

Sunday saw the opening round of the Bickers Lifting / Stebbings Car Superstore ACU Eastern Motocross Championship take place at the Blaxhall Circuit near Woodbridge. An entry of just over 190 riders were all looking to start their championship campaigns in fine style.

The Blaxhall circuit was perfectly prepared prior to an overcast start which was followed by heavy hail and rain showers at the end of the practice sessions made for a challenging racing surface until the rain cleared and sunshine appeared in the early afternoon.

In the Expert class it was Lewis Tombs who dominated the class across all three races. In the opening race Tombs took the lead on the opening lap and took victory by nearly 40 seconds ahead of Luke Benstead in second, the battle for third was close with Jake Edey taking the advantage over reigning Champion Shaun Southgate and Declan Whittle in fifth.

The second Expert race again saw Tombs take the lead in the second corner and raced away for another win over Benstead with reigning MX2 champion Ben Clark in third. Fourth and fifth places went to Charles Cole and Steve Bixby.

The final Expert class race of the day was held in the best conditions of the day and again Tombs dominated the race and took another win to make it a hat trick on the day and secure the overall. Second place went to Benstead once again to secure second overall on the day. Whittle took the third place with Southgate fourth and Connor Hughes in fifth. In the overall it was Tombs, Benstead, Southgate, Clark and Edey.

With nearly 160 Junior riders competing in the event, they were separated across four different groups with the fastest 40 going into the Junior Championship class.
