HEADING INTO<br />

Coming into the second round of the Revo ACU British Motocross<br />

Championship Fuelled By Gulf Race Fuels we stop at <strong>Foxhill</strong>, one of<br />

the most historic tracks in Britain. The track is known for the way it<br />

is shaped by the valley and the jumps that lie within it. The hardpack<br />

base and fast flowing nature of the circuit proves hard on the body<br />

but also provides some great racing. In this round of the<br />

Championship, we see the SW85, BW85, 250cc, MX2 and MX1<br />

classes. <strong>Foxhill</strong> Moto Park is an established motocross venue in the<br />

British Scene, since 1983 it has played host to varying levels of<br />

events, from Club rounds to the British Championship and even the<br />

MXGPs.<br />

At Culham, Robbie Daly walked away with the overall in the SW85 class<br />

with two race wins under his belt, he will be a contender for the podium<br />

at <strong>Foxhill</strong>. This will be Robbie’s first British Championship round at the<br />

memorable circuit. Robbie will have to fight for the win as current<br />

second and third placed Championship riders, Alfie Geddes-Green and<br />

Archie Jay Girdham, will be looking to steal the red plate away. Blake<br />

Ward-Clarke sits fourth in the Championship after Culham and will be<br />

looking for a podium this time out.<br />

The BW85 class promises some great racing with a whole list of<br />

experienced riders eager to land themselves on the podium. GRT Impact<br />

KTM rider Billy Askew is the man on top after RD1. Billy raced at <strong>Foxhill</strong> last<br />

year and grabbed himself second overall, he will be looking to go one<br />

better this year. Jake Walker who currently sits second, six points behind<br />

Billy, will be looking to continue his fine form and contend for the win at<br />

<strong>Foxhill</strong>. Josh Vail and Charlie Bubb currently sit third and fourth in points<br />

will also be ones to watch at the coming round.<br />

Tyler Westcott asserted himself as the man to beat in the MXY2 class this year at RD1 taking the<br />

overall in convincing fashion. Tyler finished third at <strong>Foxhill</strong> in 2021 so should have plenty of<br />

confidence heading into the venue this season. Travis Steels finds himself second in points and<br />

seven points back after RD1, he will be looking to steel a win this time out. Jak Taylor came<br />

second at <strong>Foxhill</strong> last year in the 125 class, lets see what he can do on the four-stroke machine<br />

this year.


FOXHILL<br />

Conrad Mewse took the overall in dominant fashion at Culham and leads the<br />

Championship heading into <strong>Foxhill</strong>. He comes in to RD2 in fine form, however, in 2021<br />

<strong>Foxhill</strong> was one of two rounds in which Conrad didn’t take the overall. He will be looking<br />

to change that stat this time around. Isak Gifting currently sits second in the<br />

Championship, six points behind Mewse after the opening round. It will be the Belgian<br />

riders first visit to the <strong>Foxhill</strong> venue. Will we see Jamie Law grab himself another third<br />

overall finish now he has finally got that illusive first British podium under his belt?<br />

Crendon Fastrack Honda rider, Jay Hague, showed speed at RD1 and will be a contender<br />

for the podium.<br />

The MX1 category at Culham was dominated by our reigning<br />

Champ, Tommy Searle. Searle took advantage of the rough<br />

and technical conditions to go 1-1, securing the overall and the<br />

Championship lead. Searle finished second overall at <strong>Foxhill</strong>s<br />

in 2021 but will be looking to go one better this year to<br />

continue his fine form in 22. Harry Kullas was the man to beat<br />

at <strong>Foxhill</strong>s last year as he took the overall. He currently sits<br />

fourth in the championship and will be looking to give his title<br />

campaign a boost with a similar result around the historic<br />

venue this year. Shaun Simpson ended up on the podium at<br />

Culham despite feeling under the weather, which poses the<br />

question, what is he capable of when he's feeling 100<br />

percent? Jake Milward showed speed and stamina at RD1, he<br />

will be one to watch at <strong>Foxhill</strong>.<br />

WAINWRIGHT<br />

Jamie Wainwright is a rider in the Revo Seven Kawasaki team and he currently<br />

sits 13th in the MX2 Championship table. We spoke to Jamie about his career so<br />

far and his plans for the Championship.<br />

How does it feel coming back to the British championship after the off season? What are the standards of racing<br />

like this season? It feels good to be back racing especially with a new team and championship I’m looking forward<br />

to see where I can finish. The standard of racing is a lot higher to what I’m used to but I believe I can be right in the<br />

mix after showing my pace at Culham.<br />

How have you been training with the team? What has the team support been like?<br />

So throughout the off season we have done a lot of testing as it was a big change to Kawasaki from KTM the team<br />

have shown me a lot of support already which makes it easy and comfortable for me.<br />

What is it like training along side Dylan Walsh, one of the top contenders for the British title?<br />

With only a little time spent with Dylan we have got on good. Riding with him the past few weeks I've learnt a lot<br />

and it’s good to have someone like that as a team mate.<br />

Going back a couple of years you’ve come up the ranks strong and fast, were you expecting to be in a top class<br />

British team in your near future? Was it a goal of yours to join a team?<br />

My goal was to get to British, never mind joining one of the biggest teams so for me Im happy to have this<br />

opportunity from Mark & Sam and I’ll be giving it 100% to achieve the best I can.<br />

Going back to the start, where has your love of motocross come from? Who/ what motivates you to keep<br />

going?<br />

So my family is a big part of my career which makes it fun weekends with us all there. I think the<br />

achievements Ive made and still doing is making me push for even more.<br />

What are your plans for this season?<br />

To enjoy my riding and keep pushing! It would be good to get on the podium.<br />

What are your plans for the next couple of years?<br />

I don’t plan to far in front but I'd say stay healthy and race the British again would be<br />

good.<br />

A mixed set of results for you at round 1 Jamie, 29-7<br />

scorecard on Sunday left you with 13th overall. Can we get<br />

your thoughts on how the day went?<br />

Yes it was a tough day for me but I had a lot of positives to<br />

take away. I had good starts all day and my pace was good<br />

especially in the second one. Whilst running top three for<br />

half of the race, I made some silly mistakes that cost me in<br />

the first race and didn’t help in the second but it’s was only<br />

round one so a lot to improve on yet.<br />

Whilst growing up, who was the rider you idolised the<br />

most?<br />

Thinking back I’d say Everts was one of my favourite<br />

riders to watch due to his talent and smoothness<br />

on a bike.

The race 1 result cost you your chance at a top 10 overall finish and a good haul of points, can you give us your insight into<br />

what happened in that first race?<br />

I was running top five towards the start of the race until I started to get tired which caused me to drop back to 8th . On<br />

the last lap a rider in front of me went down and I had nowhere to go ending up hitting the bike, this damaged my starter<br />

button and ended race one.<br />

The track was notably rough through the course of Sunday, tough conditions for the first round of the season, how did<br />

your fitness hold up at least in race 1 and do you think your training in the off season paid off?<br />

I didn’t expect the track to get so rough and technical, it was a shock to the system especially for the first round to. My<br />

fitness was okay on the bike but we still need to work on some things.<br />

Due to how rough the track was at Culham many riders were making set up changes especially with suspension settings.<br />

Could you give us an insight into any changes you and your team made to the bike through the course of the day?<br />

We didn’t actually make any major changes to the bike, all we did was set the sag to the right height for the track and then<br />

personal touches to levers ect.<br />

Although the misfortune in the first race at Culham, you showed real speed all day and gave everyone an idea of what<br />

you’re capable of for the rest of the season. What is your goal for this year, and have you got any targets for the season?<br />

I was really happy with my speed and I believe that I can be a top contender. My goal would be to finish in the top 5 and to<br />

get as many points throughout the year as possible.<br />

We head to <strong>Foxhill</strong>s for round 2 of the series, in the past has this been a good venue for you and how are you going to<br />

prepare in the weeks leading up to the event?<br />

I have only rode foxhills a handful of times so I will be preparing myself way before the round with the team on some hard<br />

pack terrains.<br />

You have been on team supported machinery before, but could you give us an insight into what the main differences are<br />

being under a manufacturer supported effort like Revo Kawasaki?<br />

Being with revo kawasaki is a massive step for me compared to what I’m normally used to. The team are very professional<br />

and have put a lot of time and work in behind the scenes to help me improve. We have also been testing and riding a lot<br />

more which is something I have never really done.


F O X H I L L<br />

M O T O P A R K<br />

Hosted by the Langrish Club, the British Championship, once again heads back to <strong>Foxhill</strong> MX Track for the 2022<br />

season. The track first hosted the British Championship back in 2019. After two failed attempts due to weather<br />

conditions, the event in 2019 was a huge success that brought in a huge crowd. Being so successful in 2019 the<br />

British championship returned in 2021 after a season out due to Covid-19.<br />

The event in 2021 was again hugely successful,<br />

which attracted a massive crowd with spectacular<br />

racing from all classes that attended.<br />

This year we will see the addition of the SW85 class<br />

tackle the highland track along with the BW85, 125cc,<br />

250cc, MX2 and MX1 class return for the 2022<br />

season.<br />

In 2021 Shaun Simpson contended for the MX1 class<br />

and although taking his first race win of the season<br />

he was unsuccessful outridden by Harri Kullas who<br />

was crowned as the MX1 champion of <strong>Foxhill</strong>. Steven<br />

Clarke invaded the MX2 class winning both the<br />

Expert and MX2 championship with a total score of<br />

45 points over the round.<br />

Despite hosting one of the best British motocross tracks in the country, Langrish Club has not always raced here. Before <strong>Foxhill</strong>,<br />

the club raced at the memorable Manor Farm track, home to the Ken Hall trophy and Ken Hall International after they were<br />

handed the track from Waterlooville club in 1999. It was the intentions of Langrish club to take Ken Hall International to its 50th<br />

birthday. The event was then retired in 2016 and with that, Langrish Club took a one year break before moving down to <strong>Foxhill</strong><br />

after the Manor Farm track was sold.<br />

Since Langrish Club took over the track, Paul Cook and Ron Field the track builder at <strong>Foxhill</strong> added a new section at the entrance<br />

to the valley, re-designed the finish area, repositioned the start and added two more turns before the valley section and a lake<br />

was built to hold water to keep the track in its best condition. The most changes made to the track since 2008 when the amenity<br />

was further developed and improved with the eventual aim to provide the best racing facility.<br />

<strong>Foxhill</strong> Moto Park although currently managed by the Langrish Club, has been a major venue in the British motocross<br />

industry since 1983. During which the venue has hosted events for every level of the sport from youth riders and<br />

armatures through to the professional and MXGP riders, like Stephan Everts who competed at the round in 2021.

What is the British championship like<br />

now compared to when you used to race?<br />

The British has changed a fair bit over the pasted<br />

few years and especially over the last 15 years.<br />

British motocross is strong but it needs the time<br />

to grow stronger again. It’s something I’ve always<br />

been proud to be a part of and support. I love the<br />

racing and the sport so I always want to see it<br />

going in the right direction and in a positive way.<br />

What is your favourite memory as a rider in the British championship?<br />

I’ve been lucky enough to have lots of great memories on and off the track in the British championship<br />

over the years. The one that stands out is my first British Championship title going down to the last<br />

race with Billy Mackenzie.


STEPHEN<br />

SWORD<br />

What are your favourite tracks to ride? Coach at?<br />

Favourite tracks to ride would be <strong>Foxhill</strong>, Canada heights<br />

and lyng. I love coaching at any track.<br />

What is your proudest moment as a coach?<br />

Its only my third year as a rider coach but my proudest moments would be helping the riders when<br />

the going is tough and things aren’t maybe going so well. It’s very rewarding when you are able to<br />

turn a not so good day into a great day by the end.<br />

Helping Conrad Mewse to 8th in the mx2 world championship and winning his second<br />

British title was a good feeling too.<br />

Who are you coaching currently?<br />

Current riders I coach are Isak Gifting and Kay<br />

Karssemakers in MX2. Also Cole McCullough in emx125.<br />

Any tips for riders in the championship at the moment?<br />

This year the goal is to guide and push our riders to win the British title.<br />

All I would say to anyone racing , is to give 100% commitment into all the preparation that goes<br />

into achieving your goals.<br />
