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 6th May thanks to the continued support of local company Foxwood Trade.

Foxwood Trade is a branch of Foxwood Ceramics which opened earlier this year 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.

Once again the Foxwood Trade Holeshot Award will 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 is sure to increase the importance of the start for the riders. Also for 2018 the Holeshot Awards will be given to the British 2-Stroke Championship races meaning that there will be six Awards handed out across the course of the races.

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 fourth year running. The Holeshot Award has been a great success during the previous events 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 May 6th at Blaxhall.”
