Following the recent announcement of Orwell Truck and Van supporting the Maxxis British Motocross event at Blaxhall on July 16th, the Woodbridge and DMCC are now pleased to announce the return of the

Foxwood Ceramics Holeshot Award thanks to the continued support of local company Foxwood Ceramics.

Foxwood Ceramics based in Kesgrave near Ipswich are an established local family business offering an extensive and imaginative range of wall and floor tiles and bathrooms. The range includes Italian fine porcelain imported directly from the Edimax factory, ceramic, porcelain and glass tiles from Porcelanosa and natural stone products from Ca Pietra, Beltrami and Groundworks. Outdoor paving and patio products from Global Stone are also available. Foxwood Ceramics 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 Ceramics 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 the first time in 2017 the Holeshot Awards will be given to the all-new 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 another local company such as Foxwood Ceramics for a third year. The Holeshot Award was a great success during the last two 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 July 16th at Blaxhall.”

The third round of the Bickers Lifting ACU Eastern Championship took place at the Blaxhall Circuit, hosted by the Woodbridge & DMCC and supported by Orwell Truck and Van. Following a week of hot weather the track was heavily watered to ensure the track was in the best condition possible for racing on Sunday morning.

With a strong line of the riders in the Expert class including the likes of Maxxis British Championship front runner Steven Lenoir and others including Luke Norris, James Dunn and Jordan Divall the racing was fast across the three Championship races. The Qualifying session saw Lenoir set the fastest time ahead of Jordan Divall and Luke Norris with local rider Shaun Southgate in fourth and Dylan Woodcock fifth.

The first Expert race of the day saw Steven Lenoir and Luke Norris make the start ahead of the field with Lenoir quickly moving into the lead on the opening lap. The Frenchman pushed hard early on and opened a comfortable lead to take victory over Norris by 15 seconds. It was Divall who had worked his way through the pack from 10th on the opening lap to cross the line in third ahead of the Expert Championship leader Luke Benstead in fourth and Dylan Woodcock in fifth.

The second Expert race of the day would see EMX300 rider James Dunn on his KTM 250 2stroke take the holeshot and lead the early laps of the race ahead of Steven Lenoir. Lenoir soon moved into the lead and took another race win by nearly 20 seconds over Dunn. Third place went to Benstead after battling from 9th on the opening lap, with Norris and Woodcock rounding out the top 5.

The third and final Expert race of the day saw Dunn once again get the 250 2stroke out of the gate at the front of the field. This time around Dunn was able to hold onto the lead for a little bit longer, before Lenoir took the lead. But for the first time of the day Lenoir made a mistake and drop his machine handing the lead back to Dunn who held the lead until the halfway point when Lenoir reclaimed the lead and the took the win and the overall victory. Dunn took a comfortable second and third overall on the day. In third it was Norris and his 2-4-2 gave him second overall on the day. The fourth and fifth places went to Divall and Benstead.

In the Junior Championship the 120 riders were split across 3 groups and produced some great racing in all the races. The opening Junior Championship race would see Aaron Holloway take the start and the early race lead but he was caught and passed late in the moto by eventual race winner Ashly Campbell. Rheis Morter also managed to move into second place ahead of Holloway in third. Fourth and fifth places went to James Wayman and Simon Daniels.

The second Junior Championship race would see Tim Clark take the early lead before Holloway moved into the lead early on and take the race win ahead of Jack Youngs in second. The story of the race was Rheis Morter who crashed on the first turn and produced a storming ride to come from last to take third at the flag ahead of Tim Clark and Ashly Campbell.

The final Junior Championship race of the day saw Tim Clark once again make the start and this time Holloway moved into the lead on lap 1 and held the lead all race long only to be passed on the final lap by Morter who took the win and the overall victory. Holloway took the second place and second overall with Campbell in third in the race and on the day. Fourth and fifth places went to Wayman and Joseph Golding.
