Woodbridge & DMCC announced as Maxxis Organiser of the Year for 2016

 

The 2016 Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean featured some of the closest racing in recent years as the Series was hosted by eight different Organisers, all ensuring their preparations for each round were of the highest quality which demonstrates and justifies why the Series is regarded as the one of the premier domestic Motocross championships in Europe.

 

This season saw all three British Champions being crowned at the final round and all winning by small margins which made the final race day at Foxhill very exciting for the large crowd lucky enough to witness the drama unfold before their eyes.  

 

It then falls on the Series Promoter – ACU Events Ltd to select the Organiser of the Year.  A difficult task given the high standards achieved during 2016 by all eight Organisers, but in the words of the Highlander ……… ‘There can be only one’ ………….

 

Woodbridge & DMCC who hosted Round Six at their Blaxhall circuit in Suffolk have been awarded the prestigious title of Maxxis Organiser of the Year for 2016.

 

Woodbridge & DMCC returned to the British Championship calendar in 2015 with a highly successful first event which was enjoyed by riders and fans alike.  The club continued to improve on key areas of the event in readiness for this year and in doing so provided a perfect race circuit and smoothly run event on one of the hottest days of the summer.

 

Series Manager Stuart Drummond commented by saying, “This year has been a good year for all the Organisers and Promoters and it has been a really tough decision who to select as Organiser Of The Year and as always the standard has been outstanding, but one has to stand out. My congratulations go to the Woodbridge & DMCC.  It's always good to recognise hard work at all levels, well done to everyone involved".

 

Speaking on behalf of the Woodbridge & DMCC, Debbie Blyth said, “As a club it is a great honour to have been given this award for the 2016 season as it has been something that we have been aiming for since 2014 when we agreed to host the 2015 event. We always pride ourselves on producing the best events that we can for the riders, teams and spectators and over the last two seasons we feel this has been achieved and we will continue to look at making more improvements to enhance peoples experience at the event in 2017.”

 

Woodbridge & DMCC will receive their award at the Annual ACU Awards & Presentations evening at the National Motorcycle Museum on Saturday 28th January.  

 

The championship returns to Blaxhall next year again as the Club host Round Six on 16th July.

 

 

Foxwood Trade puts Cash on the Line for the Holeshot Awards at Blaxhall 

 

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.”

Steve Lumley Planings Ltd Continues to support the Maxxis at Blaxhall

 

With just under 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 6th May. 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 Foxwood Trade.  

 

Local road planing company Steve Lumley Planing Ltd, a keen supporter of both two and four wheeled Motorsport in the area have 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 8:45am with the first race of the day at 11.00am.

Local Stars on Top Form as Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship Heads for Blaxhall 

 

Sunday 6th May will see the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean head to the Blaxhall Circuit in Suffolk, hosted by the Woodbridge and DMCC. The event features a bumper line up with 160 of the country’s best riders competing across four championship classes, giving fans a great day of racing when it all kicks off on track.

 

With local stars in top form it is sure to be an exciting day as Ipswich based Jake Nicholls heads to Blaxhall on a roll. Club member and Buildbase Honda rider Nicholls arrives at his home circuit on the back of taking a double victory at the previous round last weekend and taking over the championship lead.

 

Fellow local star Elliott Banks-Browne is also in good form after taking a podium result alongside Nicholls. Banks-Browne from Bury St Edmunds will be looking to put right the demons of last year where he crashed out of the event after setting the fastest lap in qualifying.

 

Nicholls and Banks-Browne will both have their work cut out to stay ahead of the chasing pack which includes Russian Evgeny Bobryshev and reigning champion Graeme Irwin who will both be looking to take race wins and the championship advantage leaving Blaxhall.

 

Other local riders to look out for include last year’s podium finisher Ryan Houghton and Shaun Southgate who claimed the Expert MX1 victory at the previous round, while youngster George Grigg-Pettitt will be looking for two strong rides.

 

In the MX2 class Bury St Edmunds based Lewis Tombs will be hoping to repeat his performances of last year and make it onto the podium this time round, but he will need to be in good form to beat series leader Conrad Mewse. Mewse has taken victory in all 4 motos this season and currently leads Mel Pocock in second and Josh Gilbert in third.

 

Blaxhall also features the third round of the British 2 Stroke championship where Dutchman Mike Kras leads the series ahead of Ashley Wilde, while last year’s winner James Dunn is in good form and chasing race wins.

The final class competing at Blaxhall is the opening round of the Maxxis MXY2 Championship where the leading youth riders will all be battling for the early season advantage.  

 

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 8:45am with the first race of the day at 11.00am.
