HEADING INTO

Coming into the second round of the Revo ACU British Motocross

Championship Fuelled By Gulf Race Fuels we stop at Foxhill, one of

the most historic tracks in Britain. The track is known for the way it

is shaped by the valley and the jumps that lie within it. The hardpack

base and fast flowing nature of the circuit proves hard on the body

but also provides some great racing. In this round of the

Championship, we see the SW85, BW85, 250cc, MX2 and MX1

classes. Foxhill Moto Park is an established motocross venue in the

British Scene, since 1983 it has played host to varying levels of

events, from Club rounds to the British Championship and even the

MXGPs.

At Culham, Robbie Daly walked away with the overall in the SW85 class

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

at Foxhill. This will be Robbie’s first British Championship round at the

memorable circuit. Robbie will have to fight for the win as current

second and third placed Championship riders, Alfie Geddes-Green and

Archie Jay Girdham, will be looking to steal the red plate away. Blake

Ward-Clarke sits fourth in the Championship after Culham and will be

looking for a podium this time out.

The BW85 class promises some great racing with a whole list of

experienced riders eager to land themselves on the podium. GRT Impact

KTM rider Billy Askew is the man on top after RD1. Billy raced at Foxhill last

year and grabbed himself second overall, he will be looking to go one

better this year. Jake Walker who currently sits second, six points behind

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

Foxhill. Josh Vail and Charlie Bubb currently sit third and fourth in points

will also be ones to watch at the coming round.

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

overall in convincing fashion. Tyler finished third at Foxhill in 2021 so should have plenty of

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

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

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

this year.


FOXHILL

Conrad Mewse took the overall in dominant fashion at Culham and leads the

Championship heading into Foxhill. He comes in to RD2 in fine form, however, in 2021

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

to change that stat this time around. Isak Gifting currently sits second in the

Championship, six points behind Mewse after the opening round. It will be the Belgian

riders first visit to the Foxhill venue. Will we see Jamie Law grab himself another third

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

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

for the podium.

The MX1 category at Culham was dominated by our reigning

Champ, Tommy Searle. Searle took advantage of the rough

and technical conditions to go 1-1, securing the overall and the

Championship lead. Searle finished second overall at Foxhills

in 2021 but will be looking to go one better this year to

continue his fine form in 22. Harry Kullas was the man to beat

at Foxhills last year as he took the overall. He currently sits

fourth in the championship and will be looking to give his title

campaign a boost with a similar result around the historic

venue this year. Shaun Simpson ended up on the podium at

Culham despite feeling under the weather, which poses the

question, what is he capable of when he's feeling 100

percent? Jake Milward showed speed and stamina at RD1, he

will be one to watch at Foxhill.

I had a great day at culham, it was nice to get some good results to start the season off positive.

I have been working on the hard pack for a couple of weeks now so I can be ready for Foxhill. I don’t

think the two stroke will be the right bike around the hard slick dirt but il be giving it my all.

Hopefully I can come away with another couple of top5’s and enough fuel money to get back up the

road to Cumbria

Yes please.

WAINWRIGHT

Jamie Wainwright is a rider in the Revo Seven Kawasaki team and he currently

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

far and his plans for the Championship.

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

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

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

mix after showing my pace at Culham.

How have you been training with the team? What has the team support been like?

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

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

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

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

and it’s good to have someone like that as a team mate.

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

British team in your near future? Was it a goal of yours to join a team?

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

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

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

going?

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

achievements Ive made and still doing is making me push for even more.

What are your plans for this season?

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

What are your plans for the next couple of years?

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

good.

A mixed set of results for you at round 1 Jamie, 29-7

scorecard on Sunday left you with 13th overall. Can we get

your thoughts on how the day went?

Yes it was a tough day for me but I had a lot of positives to

take away. I had good starts all day and my pace was good

especially in the second one. Whilst running top three for

half of the race, I made some silly mistakes that cost me in

the first race and didn’t help in the second but it’s was only

round one so a lot to improve on yet.

Whilst growing up, who was the rider you idolised the

most?

Thinking back I’d say Everts was one of my favourite

riders to watch due to his talent and smoothness

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

what happened in that first race?

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

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

button and ended race one.

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

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

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

fitness was okay on the bike but we still need to work on some things.

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

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

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

personal touches to levers ect.

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

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?

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

get as many points throughout the year as possible.

We head to Foxhills for round 2 of the series, in the past has this been a good venue for you and how are you going to

prepare in the weeks leading up to the event?

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

pack terrains.

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

being under a manufacturer supported effort like Revo Kawasaki?

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

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

more which is something I have never really done.

M O T O P A R K

Hosted by the Langrish Club, the British Championship, once again heads back to Foxhill MX Track for the 2022

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

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

British championship returned in 2021 after a season out due to Covid-19.

The event in 2021 was again hugely successful,

which attracted a massive crowd with spectacular

racing from all classes that attended.

This year we will see the addition of the SW85 class

tackle the highland track along with the BW85, 125cc,

250cc, MX2 and MX1 class return for the 2022

season.

In 2021 Shaun Simpson contended for the MX1 class

and although taking his first race win of the season

he was unsuccessful outridden by Harri Kullas who

was crowned as the MX1 champion of Foxhill. Steven

Clarke invaded the MX2 class winning both the

Expert and MX2 championship with a total score of

45 points over the round.

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

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

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

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

after the Manor Farm track was sold.

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

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

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

was further developed and improved with the eventual aim to provide the best racing facility.

Foxhill Moto Park although currently managed by the Langrish Club, has been a major venue in the British motocross

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

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

What is the British championship like

now compared to when you used to race?

The British has changed a fair bit over the pasted

few years and especially over the last 15 years.

British motocross is strong but it needs the time

to grow stronger again. It’s something I’ve always

been proud to be a part of and support. I love the

racing and the sport so I always want to see it

going in the right direction and in a positive way.

What is your favourite memory as a rider in the British championship?

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

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

race with Billy Mackenzie.


STEPHEN

SWORD

What are your favourite tracks to ride? Coach at?

Favourite tracks to ride would be Foxhill, Canada heights

and lyng. I love coaching at any track.

What is your proudest moment as a coach?

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

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

turn a not so good day into a great day by the end.

Helping Conrad Mewse to 8th in the mx2 world championship and winning his second

British title was a good feeling too.

Who are you coaching currently?

Current riders I coach are Isak Gifting and Kay

Karssemakers in MX2. Also Cole McCullough in emx125.

Any tips for riders in the championship at the moment?

This year the goal is to guide and push our riders to win the British title.

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

into achieving your goals.
