AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 2) AT FOXHILL      PREVIEW BY MIKE WOOD

  Following a fantastic opening meeting,the 2013 AMCA Wulfsport British Masters now travels South to the iconic Foxhill Moto Parc for round two on the weekend of April 27th/28th.During round one in the North West at Preston Docks, Nathan Watson(Battery Energy Pro MX1),Bradley Wheeler(Pirelli MX2),Jay Hague(Putoline Mini-Masters BW85cc), Alexander Brown(Putoline Mini-Masters SW85cc) and Daniel Hutchinson(Muk Junkie Amateur MX1) all finished by proudly boasting maximum points hauls.Those same lads will again be looking to maintain their fine early season form at Foxhill but where will the challenge come from??.

  Well,in Battery Energy Pro MX1,Brad Anderson after missing round one due to injury should be fit and raring to go into battle with young Watson and co.Brad will be joined at Foxhill by his Maxxis Henderson LPE Kawasaki teammates Dorren Coutts and Connor Walkley.Starting with a great 2nd overall at Preston Docks,expect Revo Talon Kawasaki star Nathan Parker to again be right in the hunt for MX1 honours.Other lads who should again figure prominently in the big 450F class include Kristian Whatley,Ross Rutherford,Daniel Hutchinson,Josh Waterman,Luke Hawkins,Ashley Wilde,Matthew Moffat and Shane Carless.

  Alongside his two moto wins in Pro MX1 achieved aboard a 250F machine,the very talented Nathan Watson also boasted a race victory in the Battery Energy Pro MX2 competition at Preston,the other success bagged by Putoline Honda star Neville Bradshaw.With a very solid brace of 2nd placings though,it was Pendrich Kawasaki ace Bryan Mackenzie who topped the podium.At Foxhill expect Mackenzie,Bradshaw and Watson to again be right at the front end of proceedings.Scoring a super 4th overall at Preston,Luke Norris will be hoping to move up a couple of places or so in the standings along with Edward Allingham,Dan Thornhill and Matt Burrows amongst others.Also watch out for young AMCA star Jack Cox who in his first Pro event scored a fine 9th overall in the series opener.

  After blasting to an impressive 6th overall in Pro MX1,Daniel Hutchinson also competed in the Muk Junkie Amateur MX1 class,reeling off four untroubled wins in the process.Although Hutchinson dominated, this class was still full of quality and thunderous racing.At Foxhill expect the likes of Cory Joe-Nemeth,Luke Meredith,Michael Reynolds,Chad Yarranton,Zac Alsop,Shane Holmes and Lewis Belfield to be again gunning for honours.

  Talking of quality,what about the www.goggle-shop.com Amateur MX2 class which looks set to rock throughout the season ahead!!.After Zac Stealey took the opening win of the series at Preston,Richard Cannings scorched to a moto victory hat-trick and the first overall verdict of the Masters season.Cannings knows though that with equally fast MX2 pilots such as Stealey,Adam Wells,Ryan Crowder,Charles Statt and Carl Benjamin amongst others hot on his heels,the battle for Foxhill honours will probably rage to the final chequered flag of the weekend!!.

  The new Pirelli supported class also produced some great action at Preston.In MX1,Jason Kendrick bagged the first moto win of the weekend before Shaun Scrivens took control and the overall win.Completing the top six overall were Daniel Chapman,Adam Smith,Ashley Dabell and Dominic Bailey.Over in Pirelli MX2,Bradley Wheeler was definitely the star,blasting to maximum points with Ryan King,Steve Turvey,Jason Brooke,Aiden Wigger and Anthony Misselbrook his closest challengers.All of the above mentioned riders should figure prominently when Pirelli MX1 and MX2 returns to action at Foxhill.In both the Pirelli MX1 and MX2 classes,there is the massive extra incentive of winning a place at the unique Ricky Carmichael motocross University.This is open to registered riders who are using Pirelli rubber for traction.After the Preston event,Shaun Scrivens(MX1) and Bradley Wheeler(MX2) lead the early chase to train with Carmichael.

  Jamie Ellis and Reece Desoer proved to be the top riders at Preston in the GSP Race Products MXY2 contest taking the overall verdict down to a nail biting last moto decider.Taking the honours though in the final clash was Ellis as Desoer slipped back to 7th.At Foxhill expect the two flying lads to renew their rivalry whilst keeping an eye open for the likes of Daryl Wallis,Josh Cadman,Kyle Lane and Loukas Maggio.

  In a very competitive and entertaining Putoline Minimasters,Jay Hague(BW85cc) and Alexander Brown(SW85cc) started the Masters season in very impressive fashion with maximum points scores.In the BW group,Joe Jeffries, Dexter Douglas,Brett Pocock and Jack Naylor completed the top five whilst in SW racing,Archie Osmaston,Oliver Consterdine,Ben Burridge and Matthew Pocock were the other prize winners.In the Putoline Minimasters,the highest overall points scorer using Pirelli tyres also will get the chance to join the Ricky Carmichael Motocross University with Jay Hague leading the race for that particular super opportunity at present.Expect the youngest Masters pilots to again thrill and provide plenty of high flying action over the big Foxhill jumps!!.

So,preview over it’s time for the real action out on track to commence but who will be the Kings of Foxhill??. Well, why not go and watch the action yourself?.  As well as the super motocross racing,you will find both refreshment and motocross related retailers on site.Action on both day’s should be underway by 10am and going right through to 5pm.Admission costs are £5 for the Saturday and £10 Adults,£5 OAP’s/Children 5-15 and Children Under 5 FREE on Sunday when the Pro class goes racing!!.Foxhill Moto Parc is located just outside Swindon,Wiltshire and can be found on postcode SN4 0DR.

WELCOME TO PRESTON DOCKS MX AND THE 2013 MASTERS WORDS BY MIKE WOOD

Welcome to the 2013 AMCA Wulfsport British Masters,and what a series it promises to be with both new venues and new sponsors on-board.With one of the major coups of the Winter,tyre giant Pirelli joins the Masters tour, offering their Scorpion MX rubber as juspart othe prize fund.For three luc ky riders theres even a chance to train with USA MX legend Ricky Carmichael.Also providing new backing for 2013 are www.goggle-shop.com whilst Putoline,Battery Energy Drink,Muk Junkie,GSP Race Products,Acerbis and Spiral GFX are again very kindly nailing their names to the Masters flag.Ken Winstanley and the whole of the Masters team would like to thank you all for your fantastic and invaluable support!!.

Once again chasing those fantastic prize funds on offer are some of the Countries top Pro,Youth and Amateur aces. With the Pro class reverting to separate MX1 and MX2 clashes again,the entry list looks particularly tasty!!.In Pro MX1, Brad Anderson returns from his season in Austrailia and is joined in MX1 by his Maxxis Henderson LPE Kawasaki team mates Dorren Coutts and Connor Walkley. Returning from injury,Revo Talon Kawasaki pilot Nathan Parker should also be right in the mix along with the likes of Kristian Whatley,Josh Waterman,Matthew Moffatt,Ross Hill,Luke Hawkins,James Dodd,Ross Keyworth and another triple Masters Champion Scott Elderfield amongst others.The top two in the 2012 MX1 Masters,defending Champion Sam Simmons and runner-up Joe Jones,both go again whilst Clinton Barrs looks likely to be the sole AMCA competitor.This class will also feature another three of the 2012 Masters Champions in James Lassu(Putoline MX1 Two-Stroke),Darryl Maxwell(Scott Acerbis Amateur MX1) and William Orritt(Michelin MX1).

Brad Anderson is also set to compete in the Pro MX2 class with the main challenge probably being provided by Bryan Mackenzie,Neville Bradshaw,Ray Rowson,Luke Norris,Jamie Skuse and defending Champion Matt Burrows. Also watch out for a whole host of rising young stars including Liam Garland,the Revo Talon Kawasaki pairing of Dan Thornhill and Damon Strydom,2012 Masters MXY2 Champion Jay Thomas and Sonny Oliver.After winning both the 2012 AMCA and Masters Zook Clothing Amateur MX2 titles,Jack Cox will be trying his luck in the 2013 Pro MX2 class.

In what looks to be very strong Amateur classes,Shane Holmes a former AMCA MX2 Champion makes his 450F debut alongside fellow AMCA Championship riders Jamie Dobson,Tim Burrows,Aran Agius,Luke Meredith,Chad Yarranton,Lewis Belfield and Scott Bates.After winning the 2012 MX2 Two-stroke Masters title,Cory Joe-Nemeth also moves up into MX1.Just some of the names to possibly watch out for in Amateur MX2 could be Richard Cannings, Carl Benjamin,Charles Statt,Ryan Crowder,Jack Jones,Brandon Benjamin,Zac Stealey and the 2012 Michelin Masters MX2 Champion Adam Wells.

After just missing out on honours in 2012,Emerson Jones will be very keen to make amends in the Pirelli MX1 contest whilst watch out for Underdog Racing riders Aidan and Lewis Wigger in Pirelli MX2.2012 BW85cc Masters winner Oliver Benton moves up into the MXY2 class for 2013.Likewise double SW85cc Champion Henry Siddiqui will go and try his luck in BW85cc,who would be brave enough to bet againist him claiming yet another title!!.

So the scene is set for an all-action,red-hot opening Masters round.We would like to wish all competitors a safe and enjoyable weekend and look forward to seeing you again when we meet at Foxhills on the weekend of April 27th/28th.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 2) AT FOXHILLS  PREVIEW  BY MIKE WOOD   


Following an opening round which produced both very contrasting and challenging conditions,the AMCA Wulfsport British Masters returns to action this weekend.In a late change of venue,the famous Foxhills circuit will now be your host for the round two action,and what a meeting it promises to be!!.

  In the Battery Energy Drink Pro class,Kristian Whatley splashed to both MX1 moto wins at Mallory and he will enter round two certainly looking to repeat the feat.Opposition though on this occasion will be strengthened by the appearance of Wiltshire resident Stephen Sword,a firm crowd favourite who simply loves the Foxhills terrain.Over in Pro MX2,round one winner Neville Bradshaw tops the entry but watch out for Swedish rider Alex Eriksson making a surprise appearance.Other names who should feature in the combined capacity Experts clashes include Bryan Mackenzie,Scott Elderfield,Lewis Gregory,local lad James Dunn and Ashley Wilde amongst others.

   The new Putoline Two-Stroke Masters made its debut at Mallory Park,and after a bright start, hopefully conditions will be far more favourable this coming weekend so that the two-smokers can really pin back that throttle and display their true versatility!!.Following the opening round,James Lassu,Matthew Moffat and Daniel Brough all bagged a Mallory moto win,with Lassu eventually finishing top of the pile.Fresh from the Youth racing ranks,young Sam Winterburn bagged a very impressive overall win in the MX2 Two-stroke contest and he currently leads Cory Joe Nemeth and Alex Davies.

   Going for a hat-trick of MXY2 Masters Youth titles,Suzuki mounted Dan Thornhill started his quest in style by topping the GSP Race Products supported class at Mallory.However Dan did not quite have it all his own way as throughout the weekend both Jay Thomas and Zac Alsop also recorded race wins.Despite the awful day two conditions during round one,all the Youth riders displayed great ability and control,none more so than Jordan Moxey.Producing a star performance,Jordan bagged all four race victories in the Moto-Pro Suspension BW85cc class ahead of Charlie Putnam,Oliver Benton and Tyron Cleaver.Top pilot in the SW85cc contest was 2011 Champion Henry Siddiqui,starting the defence of his title in the best way possible,Henry was to lead home Howard Wainwright,Matt Brame and Aaron-Lee Hanson.

   Despite only scoring 17 points in a very competitive Scott Acerbis Amateur MX1 race at Mallory,Lewis King then displayed great composure to still go onto take the overall win.Although both Jamie Dobson and Glenn Fletcher enjoyed scoring moto wins in this class,the remaining podium places instead were claimed by Luke Meredith and Ricky Lethaby.Making his Masters debut,Midlands based rider Jack Cox started the 2012 campaign in style by topping the Zook Clothing Amateur MX2 contest ahead of Edward Briscoe and Lancastrian Ryan Crowder.MX2 always produces plenty of hot action so expect TM pilot Charles Statt,Aled Bellis and Jack Forrest to also be right on the gas at Foxhills as they attempt to prove their own Championship credentials.

   New for 2012,there is now separate races for MX1 and MX2 mounted riders contesting the Michelin supported Amateur classes.After Shaun Scrivens had won the opening MX1 race,Jake Alsop took control to earn the overall victory ahead of Samuel Kirby and William Orritt.In MX2,Emerson Jones and Adam Wells disputed the top two placings in all four motos to be later joined on the podium by Tom Smith.

   So it’s time to cross fingers and hope for dry weather as the super Foxhills circuit awaits the AMCA Wulfsport British Masters racers.Enjoy the experience of competing on this great ex GP venue,have a great weekend and may the best pilot win!!.  

  Don’t forget the next round of the series on May 12th/13th at the exciting Skelder Bank,Whitby,the closing date for entries being 28th April.

     After the Winter break ,it’s time to drop that clutch and pin back the throttle as the superb AMCA Wulfsport British Masters returns for the opening round of its 2012 series at Mallory Park,Leicestershire on the weekend of March 3rd/4th.Always looking to raise the profile,Ken Winstanley and the AMCA have worked overtime to make the 2012 Masters an appealing and very rewarding Championship,introducing both new race classes and sponsors.

AMCA Wulfsport British Masters R4 at Hawkstone Park on June 15th/16th   Words and pics by Mike Wood


  Following the latest super action in the 2013 AMCA Wulfsport British Masters held at Hawkstone Park last weekend,there was some surprising news to report!!.In Battery Energy Pro MX1,MBO Sport  Yamaha pilot Kristian Whatley,the undoubted rider of the season so far,was beat to the top spot on the podium and he also failed to win a moto!!.Yes,Kristian still bagged a very strong 2/2 scorecard but it was to be super  fast Graeme Irwin on the Heads and Threads Suzuki who took a richly deserved victory as HM Plant KTM UK youngster Nathan Watson got home in 3rd.Over in Battery Energy Pro MX2, Putoline Honda ace Neville Bradshaw having recently become a dad for the first time celebrated Father’s Day in style with the overall win from Watson and Maxxis LPE rider Brad Anderson.Other riders to star during a tough round four were Jack Kelly(Goggle-shop Amateur MX2),Jay Hague(Putoline BW85cc) and Callum Green(Putoline SW85cc) who all conquered Hawkstone in style with unbeaten performances.  

  Back to those Battery Energy Drink Pro clashes though and making his intentions perfectly clear,Graeme Irwin led the opening Pro MX1 action as sand ace Nathan Watson crashed in turn two and had it all to do!!.By the end of lap one though,young Watson was already up to 15th.Upfront and Irwin was simply flying as Whatley turned up the gas to move past Bradshaw and into 2nd with Josh Waterman,Jackson Evans,Brad Anderson and Luke Remmer in the frame.As the moto developed,Waterman  tagged himself onto the front three of Irwin,Whatley and Bradshaw whilst Watson along with the hard charging Matt Moffat continued to make significant progress up the leaderboard and were now locking into combat to dispute 5th spot along with Anderson and Evans.Showing his speed,Watson not only won that particular tussle but also snatched 4th away from Waterman as Irwin took the moto victory,just over 4 seconds ahead of Whatley with Bradshaw 3rd and Anderson 6th.

  Desperate for revenge,Whatley made a flying start to moto two with Irwin,Waterman,Ross Rutherford,Bradshaw and Dorren Coutts giving chase.Two laps in and Bradshaw retired after crashing into a marshall point with thankfully both the official and rider being uninjured!!.Moving into Bradshaw’s vacant 3rd spot was Watson who had originally gated 10th,so the battle for the leadership was now well and truly on!!.Showing his pace in the sand,Watson then took just a further two laps to pass Irwin and Whatley before racing onto a great win,his eventual victory margin being an incredible 6 seconds.With Whatley maintaining 2nd from Irwin in 3rd,the battle of the race was for 4th as  Maxxis LPE riders Coutts and Anderson locked horns.Starting 8th,Ando moved up to insert heavy pressure on his teammate in a tussle which went right down to the final corner.After making a strong start in moto two,Waterman eventually dropped to 10th behind Moffat,Ashley Wilde,Daniel Hutchinson and Lewis Tombs.

  Pendrich Kawasaki star Bryan MacKenzie was very quick out of the traps in the opening Battery Energy Drink Pro MX2 contest at Hawkstone as he led the charge chased by Nathan Watson,Bradshaw,Luke Norris,Tombs and Martin Barr.With Steven Clarke and James Dunn early big name casualties disappearing from proceedings,upfront Watson wasted no time in taking control of proceedings by passing Bryan Mac on lap three.One circuit later and Bradshaw also found a way past MacKenzie whilst Barrs joined the list of retirements when being forced out with mechanical gremlins on lap eight.On completion of this MX2 tussle,Watson had bagged a big win with Bradshaw 2nd,Mackenzie 3rd,Tombs 4th,Brad Anderson 5th,Moffat 6th and Ben Watson 7th.

  Mackenzie made another lightning getaway in the second Pro MX2 clash and although Bradshaw was soon right on his tail,the flying Scotsman looked in total control of proceedings.With Bryan Mac strong upfront,Barr slotted into 3rd with Nathan Watson a rather distant 4th,Anderson 5th and Tombs 6th.Lap seven though and it was all change as leader Mackenzie suffered a very frightening incident when his Kawasaki’s footpeg snapped!!.Thankfully Bryan was uninjured and despite remounting and touring round to finish the race,his hopes of victory were naturally over. Upfront,Bradshaw was now in control but he had a very determined Barr rapidly closing him down.Indeed the verdict was to go right down to the wire with Nev just getting the verdict as Nath Watson took 3rd whilst Ando enjoying himself on the little 250F got home in 4th,Tombs charging hard claimed 5th with Dunn 6th and Ben Watson 7th the next best.

   Another surprise news item to break from Hawkstone was the first defeat in Pirelli MX2 for Bradley Wheeler.After 12 straight moto wins,Bradley was beat in the first race of the weekend by a very determined Steve Turvey.From here onwards though and despite the very best efforts of Turvey,Danny Stayte,James Milne and co,the immaculate Wheeler stormed to another three big race wins.In Pirelli MX1,series leader Shaun Scrivens took yet another overall win,also blasting to three moto victories along the way.Scrivens only defeat came in moto two when Welsh lad Adam Cook was first past the flag.However Cook also picked up a crazy brace of front wheel punctures at Hawkstone which restricted him to 16th overall.So taking the remaining podium spots in Pirelli MX1 were Jason Kendrick and a delighted Jake Thompson.

   In a very competitive Muk Junkie Amateur MX1 contest,Passion Racing boss Chad Yarranton proved that consistency is certainly the key word as he took overall success with a 6/2/7/4 scorecard and a 166 points total. Two Stroke rider Matthew Thomas also finished on that 166 total but it was Yarranton who got the verdict courtesy of his better final race placing.Earlier,eventual third place overall finisher Fraser Wakeford had won the first battle of the weekend before Daniel Hutchinson took control.Hutchinson’s hopes though of another overall win were to be dashed by a moto one DNF.Whilst Luke Meredith took 4th overall,former triple AMCA MX2 Champion Brad O’Leary signalled his comeback with a steady 5th place.

 There was no doubt who was the star of the goggle-shop.com Amateur MX2 contest at Hawkstone as young Jack Kelly blasted to a brilliant maximum points win.However whilst Kelly starred,series leader Rich Cannings produced another very brave,gutsy performance.Riding with a very painful foot injury,Cannings somehow took 2nd overall ahead of Adam Wells,Carl Benjamin,Jacob Joyce and Zac Stealey.

  Jamie Ellis(2),Robert Davidson and Liam Knight all won GSP Race Products MXY2 moto’s at Hawkstone.With Davidson then sitting out the Sunday action to concentrate on Pro MX2 competition and Ellis restricted to a 16th place finish in moto one of the weekend,the eventual overall win was to go to Knight.With a scorecard of 2/1/2/2  Knight finished ahead of Reece Desoer,Ben Franklin and Ellis.In the Championship standings,Desoer is still inserting heavy pressure on leader Ellis being just 11 points in arrears.

  Proving the popularity of the Masters series,there was separate racing for the BW and SW85cc pilots at Hawkstone Park.Both Putoline supported classes resulted in eventual maximum points winners as Jay Hague topped BW whilst Callum Green was the SW star.Showing his incredible speed,Hague was again in irresistible form,his only scare coming in the final clash of the weekend.Leading the contest,Jay fell and dropped back to 10th only to then regain control just three laps later!!.In the Putoline BW85cc competition,James McFayden,Joe Jefferies,Dee Jay Walker and Lee Perfect were the next best.Over in Putoline SW85cc,Callum Green stormed to four great wins chased home on each occasion by Dylan Woodcock.Also picking up prizes in this class were Harry Kimber,Charlie Cole and Callum Gasson.

British Masters Motocross Championship Rnd 3 : Whitby


For the second time in a week, motocross riders were offered a trip to the seaside,but there was no time to play though as it was straight down to the serious business of earning Championship points and big prizes!!.

Following hot on the heels of the RBPN at the sand heaven of Weston,this weekend’s challenge was in total contrast the spectacular,hard pack circuit at Skelder Bank,Whitby which overlooks the North Yorkshire coastal town.So,who could adapt quickest to the variation in track surfaces and take home the top awards on offer during round three of the AMCA Wulfsport British Masters??.Well,once again in Battery Energy Pro MX1 it was the immaculate Kristian Whatley aboard his MBO Sport Yamaha who was the star performer.In truly fantastic form,Kristian the current Master of British motocross won both MX1 races.Over in Pro MX2,Neville Bradshaw(Putoline Honda),and another rider right at the top of his game also bagged both moto wins.Other Whitby headline makers,well Bradley Wheeler incredibly made it 12 out of 12 moto wins in the Pirelli MX2 class whilst Jay Hague bagged another maximum score in the Putoline Mini-Masters BW85cc class.

After a very wet start to the Masters weekend when riders arrived on Friday,both race days on Saturday and Sunday proved thankfully to be dry and sunny.However this change in weather conditions was to create an whole maize of rutted corners and indeed a very knarly first turn was to catch out Steven Clarke in the opening Battery Energy Drink supported Pro MX2 clash of the weekend as the HM Plant KTM UK rider tasted the Yorkshire soil. First to show though was series leader Nev Bradshaw hunted by James Dunn,Ben Watson and Adam Sterry with AMCA rider Ryan Morris making a great start in 5th.Whilst Bradshaw controlled,meanwhile his closest Championship contender Bryan MacKenzie aboard his Pendrich Kawasaki had suffered an early nightmare and was right down in 19th spot with it all to do!!.As the moto progressed,Bradshaw stretched his advantage,Ben Watson slipped down the leaderboard whilst there was serious forward movement from Nathan Watson and Graeme Irwin.With Watson eventually getting up to 2nd,Irwin blasted in style right up from an early 15th to bag a fantastic 3rd at the flag with Dunn 4th,Sterry 5th and Martin Barr 6th.Another rider working hard to climb the leaderboard was Lewis Tombs, gating 19th,the JAR IFS Honda rider finished 9th,one place ahead of MacKenzie.

Making a fantastic start,young Robert Davidson led the opening lap of Pro MX2 moto two but was immediately under severe pressure from Dunn,Bradshaw and MacKenzie.So tight was this pack,that in one super circuit,Bryan Mac passed the lot to control the moto!!.However Bryan’s joy was to be short lived as just a lap later,Bradshaw was now the pace setter!!.From here onwards,Nev marched onto another great victory,finishing over 12 seconds ahead of Bryan.Again getting home in 3rd with another storming ride was Irwin,this time moving from 10th.The ride of this moto though belonged to Nathan Watson,recovering from 17th to bag a super 4th ahead of early pace setter Davidson,Dunn,Sterry,Tombs,Dan Thornhill and Ben Watson.

What about Battery Energy Pro MX1 then??,well the very much in-form Kristian Whatley stamped his authority on proceedings right from the off in moto one and along with Nev Bradshaw,Nathan Watson,Jackson Evans and Brad Anderson they quickly broke away from the chasing pack.On a charge though and determined not to be dropped from the equation,Graeme Irwin,Steven Clarke and Josh Waterman were also on a charge and desperate to remain in contention.As the contest unfolded,Watson moved up to 2nd and insert very heavy late pressure on eventual winner Whatley whilst Anderson surprisingly slipped down to finish 8th behind Bradshaw,Irwin,Clarke,Evans and Waterman.

Luke Hawkins briefly led the second Pro MX1 clash before that man Whatley took total control.On completion of the opening circuit with Whatley the pace-setter and Hawkins,Bradshaw,Jamie Law,Evans,Jack Brunell,Nathan Watson all right in the mix,Anderson was recovering from a 11th place start.With Hawkins eventually slipping back to 8th,both Bradshaw then finally Watson took turns to chase winner Whatley.At the flag,Whatley was nearly nine seconds clear of Watson as Bradshaw took 3rd.Recovering in determined style,Anderson was just inches away from snatching 4th spot from Law whilst Irwin,Evans,Hawkins,Ashley Wilde and Dorren Coutts completed the top ten. Earlier Coutts had been forced out of moto one with a holed radiator.

What can you say about Bradley Wheeler the current leader of the Masters Pirelli MX2 class??.Following his latest success at Whitby,Wheeler has now won all 12 moto’s held.In North Yorkshire this weekend,his smallest winning race margin was a mere 25 seconds!!.With Wheeler so dominant,the remaining Whitby top six comprised of Aiden Wigger,Steve Turvey,Ryan King,Ryan Osborn and Mitchell Benjamin.Over in Pirelli MX1,Shaun Scrivens continues to dominate.At Whitby though,Scrivens had to settle for 3rd in the opening clash of the weekend behind Adam Smith and Emerson Jones.From here onwards,Scrivens then dominated and thus bag a moto win hat-trick with Smith,Jason Kendrick,Jake Thompson,Jack Waterman and Jones the main challengers.

In Muk Junkie Amateur MX1,it was certainly another busy weekend for Daniel Hutchinson and Joe Jones as they also contested the Pro MX1 clashes.Despite this test of endurance though,the two lads still topped the Amateur MX1 standings with Jake Alsop,Chad Yarranton,Adam Cook and Luke Meredith the next best.After Jones had won the opener,from here onwards it was Hutchinson the moto victor in the remaining three clashes.

Richard Cannings continues to lead the 2013 www.goggle-shop.com Amatuer MX2 contest with the Yorkshireman bagging overall success at Whitby.Cannings though had to work very hard for that win,fending off determined young charger Jack Kelly.Indeed Cannings and Kelly shared the moto win count,the deciding factor being the opening contest of the weekend when Kelly was pushed back to 4th behind Zac Stealey and Carl Benjamin.Both Benjamin and Stealey figured heavily throughout proceedings and were very good value for their eventual 3rd and 4th places in the final overall standing as Adam Wells took 5th and Stuart Owen 6th.

As well as testing their skills in the Pro MX2 contest,young guns Dan Thornhill and Robert Davidson also competed in the GSP Race Products MXY2 class at Whitby.Showing their undoubted class,the two lads finished top of the pile locked together on 191 points apiece,winning two moto’s each in the process.Cruicially though Thornhill took the decisive final race victory,moving through from an early 5th to pass Jamie Ellis,Reece Desoer,Davidson and Curtis Blamey.Whilst it was Gradie Featherstone who went onto bag the remaining eventual podium spot,it’s still Ellis who leads the Championship standings from Desoer and Loukas Maggio.

In the combined Putoline Mini-Masters BW/SW85cc clashes young Jay Hague was again in terrific form,bagging another BW maximum.In all four clashes though,Joe Jeffries chased him home to keep the pressure well and truly on Jay in the race for the Championship.Over in the SW85cc,Harry Kimber looked all set for victory until a last moto disaster.Forced back into 9th spot,Harry had to settle for the overall runners-up slot behind Nathan Claughan with Archie Osmaston,Samuel Price and Matthew Pocock also right in the mix

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS (ROUND 2) AT FOXHILL MP ON APRIL 27TH/28TH

  WORDS AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD.


  Hot on the heels of his super RBPN win,MBO Sport Yamaha rider Kristian Whatley was again successful at the weekend as he topped the Pro MX1 charts during round two of the AMCA Wulfsport British Masters,staged at the iconic Foxhill circuit in Wiltshire.On the gas right from the off and after posting the fastest qualification time,Kristian then blasted to a brace of very strong moto wins.Over in Pro MX2,the very rapid Graeme Irwin and Neville Bradshaw shared the victories.However with Irwin also suffering a moto two DNF,it was Bradshaw who took home the overall spoils.On another weekend of top class Masters action,Bradley Wheeler(Pirelli MX2) and Harry Kimber(Putoline Mini-Masters SW85cc) were the only other riders to join Whatley on a maximum points score.Incredibly Wheeler after eight completed races in the Masters series is yet to suffer defeat,what a record!!.

  Back to the those Battery Energy Drink supported Pro clashes though,and what a treat the opening MX1 contest served up!!.Doubling up,it was Putoline Honda star Neville Bradshaw who led the charge with Brad Anderson, Whatley,Josh Waterman,Luke Hawkins and Jamie Law in tow.Two laps in and Ando had hit the front but his joy was to be very short lived!!.Entering a Foxhill rut and with now Whatley and early leader Bradshaw right on his rear fender,the chain flicked off his Kawasaki’s rear sprocket.With Whatley sharing that same rut and forced into evasive action it thus allowed a surprised Bradshaw back into pole position!!.Whilst Brad frantically hooked his chain back on,dropping right back to 22nd in the process,at the front and within a further lap Whatley was moving smartly past Bradshaw and into the lead!!.From here onwards,Whatley controlled all the way to the chequered flag and take the win from Bradshaw as Graeme Irwin took a super 3rd after initially gating 10th and then earlier being forced to fight off the very determined duo of Waterman and Hawkins.In a class encounter,Ross Rutherford,Gert Krestinov,Law, Ashley Wilde and Scott Elderfield were all right in the mix throughout.

  Although Matt Moffat grabbed the Pro MX1 moto two holeshot,that man Whatley was quickly in control and there he remained to earn himself another winners cheque.Right from the off,a very determined Anderson gave chase, being just over six seconds down at the flag as Bradshaw got home in 3rd,Irwin 4th and Hawkins after starting 10th taking a fine 5th.The ride of this moto though came from Krestinov who blasted from 16th on lap one and thus earn a storming 6th ahead of Law,Moffat,Waterman and Elderfield.After his double victory in the Masters R1 at Preston back in March,young Nathan Watson finished 11th in moto two following an opening race DNF.

  Not enjoying the best of Foxhill fortunes,Watson was also forced out of the opening Pro MX2 contest on lap two when holding 4th spot behind Graeme Irwin,Bryan Mackenzie and Nev Bradshaw.With Watson out,the impressive Lewis Toombs moved up the leaderboard.At the front though there was no stopping the very rapid Heads and All Threads Suzuki pilot Irwin who blasted to a big victory,nine seconds ahead of a titanic,full throttle tussle for 2nd in which Bradshaw just edged out Mackenzie.Completing the top ten in moto one were Toombs,Lewis Tricket,Adam Sterry,Robert Davidson,Matt Moffat,Dan Thornhill and Jamie Skuse.

  Bradshaw was certainly very quick out of the blocks in Pro MX2 moto two as he led the charge with Irwin,Watson, Mackenzie,Sterry and Thornhill giving chase whilst AMCA Championship rider Ryan Morris was right in the mix and holding a super 8th.Three laps in and Irwin slipped back to 4th as Mackenzie moved up to slot into 2nd with Watson 3rd.That leaderboard was to then change yet again as Irwin’s Suzuki ground to a halt,thus signalling the end of his participation.Up front with Bradshaw in total control and cruising,all eyes were now focussed on the battle for 2nd as Mackenzie and Watson locked horns.Lap seven,and Watson scorched past the Scotsman but could he now catch the runaway leader Bradshaw??.Well,the young HM Plant KTM UK rider gave it a real go,dramatically closing the gap to  finish just two seconds down at the flag.As Mackenzie took 3rd,Toombs had another super ride to bag 4th and with it the final podium spot.Also impressive was young Sterry in 5th as Moffat took 6th,Luke Norris 7th and Lewis Gregory,campaigning a 125cc two-stroke Yamaha 8th.After his fine start,Morris was also in the frame with 9th whilst a notable non-scorer in this race was Thornhill who disappeared from proceedings on lap five when holding 8th.

   After taking a great 7th overall in the Pro MX2 class,young Robert Davidson also competed in the GSP Race Products Youth MX2 class.In this contest although Robert did take the overall win he also had to share the moto wins with Liam Knight who matched him score for score.Taking 3rd overall was Curtis Blamey ahead of round one victor Jamie Ellis,Loukas Maggio and Chase Neale.

    Despite having recently switched from Suzuki  to KTM machinery,Tyron Cleaver got the combined Putoline Mini-Masters contest at Foxhill off to a flyer by taking victory in moto one.In the BW85cc class,eventual overall winner Joe Jeffries was first past the post in moto two before Jay Hague took control for maximum points on Sunday.As Cleaver went on to claim the second step on the podium,Hague had to settle for 3rd following a disastrous 26th place finish during moto one.In the Putoline SW85cc clashes,Harry Kimber was the star performer with a perfect maximum points haul as Ben Burridge and Archie Osmaston were the next best.  

  Another doubling up rider,Daniel Hutchinson,took top slot in the Muk Junkie Amateur MX1 contest although unlike round one at Preston,he did not totally dominate.On day one at Foxhills,Joe Jones was the double moto victor before sitting out Sunday’s racing to concentrate on his Pro MX1 duties.So with Jones absent and although Hutchinson then scored both wins,there was still to be plenty of great MX1 action with Chad Yarranton,Alexander Hussey,Luke Meredith and Jake Alsop right in the mix.On the podium it was Yarranton and Hussey standing alongside Hutchinson.

 Having recently switched to KTM machinery,Dan Thornhill tried out his new mount by competing in the www. Goggle-shop.com Amateur MX2 contest on day one,duly bagging both moto victories.However Dan then switched his attention to the Pro MX2 competition for the Sunday programme so it was George Clarke and Adam Wells who now stepped forward to blast to the moto victories.In the overall standings,Wells with a very solid 2/2/3/1 card took the top step on the box ahead of the equally consistent Richard Cannings who was struggling with a collarbone injury and Clarke.Zac Stealey,two-stroke TM ace Charles Statt and Jack Drogan completed the top six.

   What a contest the Pirelli MX1 class proved to be,including an incredible finish to moto three!!.After working his way up from 5th,eventual overall winner Shaun Scrivens looked set for another victory until crashing on landing from the final uphill jump thus allowing both Anthony Milliar and Chris Povey through.Throughout the weekend,Povey on his 250cc two-stroke Suzuki had proved to be a serious contender,chasing Scrivens all the way.Whilst Scrivens was made to work very hard,what can you say about Pirelli MX2 winner Bradley Wheeler who was again simply superb!!. Winning all four clashes in style and romping to victory,Wheeler left Aidan Wigger to claim 2nd and Steve Turvey 3rd.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND ONE) AT PRESTON DOCKS MX ON MARCH 9TH/10TH  REPORT AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD


Despite freezing temperatures and a stark reminder that Winter is far from done,the action out on track at Preston Docks MX during a super opening round of the 2013 AMCA Wulfsport British Masters was simply red hot!!.With the recent Hawkstone International having been cancelled,this was the first major outdoor action of the year and in a very strong entry,the determination and desire of all the riders at Preston was clearly evident.Although all of the Pro’s were particularly keen and raring to go racing with the Maxxis British Championship due to kick off this coming weekend,there could be no doubting though who was the star performer as HM Plant KTM rider Nathan Watson bagged three very stylish wins.Despite riding a 250F,young Nathan sent out a serious warning of his intentions for the season ahead by scorching to both Pro MX1 moto victories.Nathan also took the opening Pro MX2 win before suffering his only blip of an otherwise perfect performance.In the second Pro MX2 clash of the day at Preston and in his eagerness to make yet another jet propelled getaway he struck the metal start gate, thus relegating himself to last place!!.Despite then recovering back to 6th place,Watson had to settle for 2nd overall behind the winner,Pendrich Kawasaki star Bryan Mackenzie.Whilst the impressive Watson took the Pro class headlines,there was to be also unbeaten performances from Daniel Hutchinson,Bradley Wheeler,Jay Hague and Alexander Brown during Masters round one.

  As the gate dropped for the opening Pro Battery Energy Drink MX2 clash of the day,fastest away was Edward Allingham with Bryan Mackenzie,Nathan Watson and Luke Norris in tow whilst Neville Bradshaw was down in 11th.Just one lap in and Mackenzie was in control with Watson also moving up into 2nd.The leaderboard again changed on lap four as Watson then zoomed past Mackenzie.Undeterred the Scotsman fought back and refused to let young Watson getaway. However after several frantic circuits,Watson eventually managed to create an advantage for himself and there he remained to earn a fine win from Mackenzie,Allingham,Norris,Bradshaw,Ben Watson,Ray Rowson,Jack Kelly,Matt Burrows and Dan Thornhill.

  In the second Pro MX2 clash as Nathan Watson was busy freeing his KTM’s front wheel from the start gate,it was Bradshaw who on this occasion led the charge.In another classic motocross battle,Nev then had to work overtime for several rip-roaring laps before eventually seeing off the very determined challenge of Bryan Mac.Holding a great third spot throughout this clash was Luke Norris as Ben Watson and Thornhill regularly swapped positions whilst disputing 4th.Meanwhile further downfield,Nathan Watson was charging hard and making passing on the Preston circuit look extremely easy.By lap ten Nathan was up to 7th before also then relegating Matt Burrows on the final circuit.Just ahead of him,Bradshaw took the win from Mackenzie,Norris,Ben Watson and Thornhill.Making his Pro racing debut at Preston,AMCA MX2 star Jack Cox scored a great 9th place in this clash.

   Although Brad Anderson was unfortunately forced to sit out the opening Masters round due to a shoulder injury, the entry for Sunday’s Battery Energy Drink Pro MX1 was still high class.Fastest away in moto one was Alex Snow only for him then to suffer a spectacular off and an injured wrist before the completion of the opening lap!!.With Snow out for the remainder of the meeting,that lad Nathan Watson aboard his 250F took control but could he remain there with the big 450F’s of Kristian Whatley,Ashley Wilde,Nathan Parker,Ross Rutherford and Gert Krestinov all hunting him down?.The answer to that question was a yes as Watson simply turned up the wick to finish 12 seconds clear of Whatley with Krestinov bagging 3rd ahead of Parker,Rutherford,Wilde,Daniel Hutchinson,Matt Moffat,Josh Waterman and Rob Clitheroe.

 Whilst Dorren Coutts was brought down on the opening lap of Pro MX1 moto two and had it all to do,Parker made the perfect holeshot and lead the pack around turn one and into combat with the likes of Watson,Krestinov,Luke Hawkins and Waterman in tow as Whatley was fighting hard to recover from a lowly 20th spot.Upfront Parker held onto the leadership for three great laps before Watson stylishly moved through and into pole position before racing onto victory and another lovely £500 winners cheque.Coming back from injury,Parker was pleasingly right on the pace to earn 2nd spot at the flag from Krestinov,Hawkins and Rutherford.Showing great determination,Whatley recovered in super fashion to claim a strong 6th at the flag whilst Waterman,Hutchinson,Shane Carless and Connor Walkley rounded out the top ten.

  Testing his endurance to the max and after earning a very impressive 6th overall in the Pro MX1 class,Bikesport KTM rider Daniel Hutchinson also competed in the Muk Junkie Amateur MX1 contest at Preston.Showing his quality,Daniel went through the card unbeaten.In a field that also contained AMCA MX1 Championship runners Luke Meredith,Michael Reynolds,Chad Yarranton,Shane Holmes,Lewis Belfield,Scott Bates and Aran Agius,the overall runners-up slot in this class actually went to Cory Joe Nemeth the 2012 Putoline Two-Stroke MX2 Masters Champion.Over in a very competitive Amatuer MX2 which is backed by new sponsor Goggle-Shop.com,Zac Stealey took the opening moto win of the weekend ahead of Richard Cannings,Adam Wells,George Purchase and Jack Drogan.From here onwards though,Cannings was the main man,blasting to a hat-trick of victories which included  a super last moto battle with Lancastrian Ryan Crowder.

  In the new Pirelli supported Amateur classes,Shaun Scrivens took top honours in MX1 with a very impressive 2/1/1/1 scorecard.After starting the weekend with victory,Jason Kendrick remained very consistent throughout proceedings to eventually earn the runners-up slot ahead of Daniel Chapman and Adam Smith.There was no doubting the winner though in Pirelli MX2 as Bradley Wheeler stormed to all four moto wins.On three occasions, Ryan King proved to be his closest challenger and deservedly finished the weekend as overall runner-up with Steve Turvey completing the podium placings.

 What about the Youth racers at Preston then??.Well Jamie Ellis and Reece Desoer proved to be the top two riders in the opening GSP Race Products MXY2 action for 2013,winning a brace of moto’s each.Going into the final clash of the weekend it was still all to play for with Desoer looking the favourite as he still held a 11 point advantage over his rival in the overall standings.When the gate dropped it was indeed Ellis and Desoer who led the way until a pivotal lap eight.With Desoer then slipping back to 7th and just a further two circuits remaining there was no way back,thus enabling Ellis to take the race win and top slot on the podium.Completing the top six in this class were Daryl Wallis,Josh Cadman,Kyle Lane and Loukas Maggio.

    Providing plenty of spectacular action over the big Preston jumps,the combined Putoline Minimasters 85cc/150cc class resulted in maximum points scores for winners Jay Hague(BW) and Alexander Brown(SW).Whilst Joe Jeffries, Dexter Douglas,Brett Pocock and Jack Naylor were the other BW prize winners,Archie Osmaston,Oliver Constendine, Ben Burridge and Matthew Pocock completed the SW top five.

 Following the recent unsettled weather,Preston Docks MX proved to a very wise choice for the opening meeting in the AMCA Wulfsport British Masters series with the next episode of the 2013 tour due to be staged down South at  the Foxhills circuit on April 27th/28th.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 5) AT PONTRILAS      REPORT AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD.


   After missing the previous round at Hawkstone Park,Pro stars Kristian Whatley and Neville Bradshaw were back in AMCA Wulfsport British Masters action last weekend,in the process bagging the respective overall wins in the Battery Energy Drink supported MX1 and MX2 classes.Again in scintillating form,PAR Honda rider Whatley blasted to both race victories and thus take home the big money on offer,a result which also saw him move back to the top of the MX1 Championship table with just one round remaining.Meanwhile Bradshaw in topping the MX2 class as now moved to just 6 points behind series leader Matt Burrows.Also starring at Pontrilas in a great weekend of Masters action were Matthew Moffat(Putoline 2-Stroke MX1),Dan Thornhill(GSP Race Products MXY2),Adam Wells(Michelin MX2) and Gradie Featherstone(Moto-Pro Suspension BW85cc) who all blasted to super maximum points scores.

  Back to the Battery Energy Drink Pro racing though,as the main protagonists Whatley and Bradshaw were joined by a high quality,totally full line-up,including some of the Country’s most hungriest racers.When the gate dropped for moto one,it was Alex Snow who led the charge with Whatley,Josh Spinks,Josh Waterman,Alan Keet and Youth star Dan Thornhill chasing hard.Two laps in and Whatley surged to the front and there he stayed despite a determined late challenge from Snow with Waterman getting home in 3rd.But,whilst the top three maintained their positions, there was still plenty of high octane,frantic  action going on just a little further downfield.As Spinks,Ray Rowson, Nicholas Aubin,Ashley Wilde and Scott Elderfield all disappeared from proceedings,Thornhill was having the ride of his career so far,moving up into 4th and for five laps brilliantly resisting the pressure of the rapid Evotech Stevens Honda pilot Bradshaw.Eventually Neville and Matt Moffat overhauled Dan,but what a performance!!.Also very impressive in moto one was Gert Krestinov,starting in 20th and moving up in style to earn 9th just behind Nathan Watson and Dorren Coutts.

   Moto two and Snow pulled out another superb holeshot with Whatley,Bradshaw,Spinks,Coutts and Lewis King in tow.With King then disappearing two laps in,James Cottrell moved up the leaderboard.Upfront Snow held onto the race leadership for five exciting laps before once again the smooth Whatley soared to the front whilst as the race then developed,Coutts also got the better of Bradshaw for 3rd.Although from here onwards the top four broke away,the next six places were undecided right through to the finishing post.Continuosly  battle raged with Rowson after initially gating in 12th eventually seeing off the likes of Nathan Watson,Wilde,Waterman,Spinks,Jack Brunell and Jordan Booker in a superb tussle which had the crowd cheering with delight.

   In the Putoline Two-Stroke class,Matt Moffat ripped to four great moto wins,chased home on each occasion by the equally impressive James Lassu.Throughout the weekend,Joe Jones,Matthew Williamson,Sean Eckersley and Daniel Brough were also right in the mix.Taking the overall wins were Moffat(MX1) and Cory Joe Nemeth(MX2).In the title standings,Brough still tops MX1 whilst Alex Davies is the new MX2 leader as previous pace setter Sam Winterburn was away racing in Europe.

   No doubt who bossed the GSP Race Products MXY2 class at Pontrilas as Grittenham MX Suzuki pilot Dan Thornhill took all four moto wins in style.Dan though missed round four of the Masters series when away on RBPN duty so is unlikely to bag his third consecutive title in this particular series.Currently leading the way is Jay Thomas with Scott Alldridge in 2nd.In the latest action,both Jay and Scott were right in the thick of the action,figuring prominently in the final results,with Jay the runner-up and Scott 4th behind Daniel Maxey whilst there was also impressive performances from Dima Fircks,Curtis Blamey and Tony Saunders.

   Going into the Pontrilas event,Tyron Cleaver held a slender 6 point advantage at the top of the Moto-Pro Suspension BW85cc table.However on completion of the racing,Tyron is now 54 points behind rival Oliver Benton following a disastrous last moto mechanical problem.At Pontrilas,it was Gradie Featherstone and David Keet,both making their first appearances of 2012 who dominated proceedings.In all four moto’s,Gradie led the way chased by David whilst Mr Benton took 3rd overall ahead of Charlie Putman,Danny Mell and Josh Bunter.

    The weekend did not also go quite to plan for Moto-Pro Suspension SW85cc leader Henry Siddiqui as he was forced out of moto one after just three laps.However young Henry then quickly composed himself to reel off three moto wins in the remaining clashes and thus maintain his march to the title.Taking the Pontrilas overall verdict was another Masters first timer Harry Wichman ahead of Matt Brame,Nathan Harlow and Howard Wainwright.

   In the Scott Acerbis Amateur MX1 class,Darryl Maxwell(2),Shaun Pearce and Lewis Belfield all bagged Pontrilas moto wins.Pearce also took the overall victory from Maxwell and Scott Bates,but its Maxwell who crucially leads the title chase with a 53 point advantage over Matthew Thomas.

   Typical of the close racing it always produces,Zook Clothing Amateur MX2 resulted in a race victory each for Ryan Crowder,Jack Cox,Edward Briscoe and Charles Statt.With Cox also crashing heavily when leading the opening moto on Sunday,the overall verdict was to go to the very consistent Crowder ahead of Cox,Briscoe,Ryan Williams and Statt.

    Already this season,first Jake Alsop then Samuel Kirby have led the Michelin Masters MX1 Championship table but now with just one round remaining its William Orritt the pace setter.In the opening two races of the Pontrilas action, William also blasted to victory finishing ahead of his closest rival Kirby.However come Sunday and both lads were to be defeated by the very determined Tye Barrs who controlled from the front and earn his own moto win double in style.So with just Foxhills to come, Orritt has a 16 point advantage over Kirby,watch out for a Wiltshire thriller!!.

   In Michelin MX2,Adam Wells further increased his title chasing advantage with a brilliant display of motocross racing.Wells was first past the post in all four clashes with his closest Championship rival Emerson Jones the runner-up.Also having a good weekend and earning the final podium place was Adam Constable whilst Jamie McCarthy, Adam Wigger and Ryan Osborn completed the top six.

  On arrival at Pontrilas,Ken Winstanley reported that the track and surrounding area was remarkably dry.However typical of the Masters misfortune in 2012,heavy rain then fell on Friday turning the paddock into an absolute quagmire and resulting in the need to tow every single vehicle onto the site in preparation for the event!!. Thankfully the rest of the weekend was then predominantly dry and the track in prime condition to thus enable an exciting full programme of super action.Ken and all of the Masters team deserve a massive pat on the back for their sterling efforts in once again getting it on!!.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 4) AT HAWKSTONE PARK     WORDS AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD


   Another AMCA Wulfsport British Masters weekend and yet more wet weather,the story so far of the 2012 season!!.After rain had wreaked havoc at Mallory and caused cancellation at Whitby,the big watering can in the sky then attempted to ruin day two at Hawkstone Park last weekend during round four.Indeed conditions on Sunday became so poor that the infamous Hawkstone hill was cut out of the track route as the circuit more resembled a ploughed field,turning the event into a serious battle of strength,staminia and survival for all!!.Undeterred though, Ken Winstanley and the Masters team refused to be defeated,with the riders also standing firm and determined to ensure that round four was actually completed!!.Well done to everyone concerned!!.

   In the Battery Energy Pro class,both of the current series leaders,Kristian Whatley and Neville Bradshaw were missing due to other commitments whilst Ashley Greedy then ruled himself out after injuring his shoulder when crashing in practice,so,who would earn the big money on offer?.In moto one,Scott Elderfield led the way before being passed by Daniel Hutchinson and Shane Carless after stopping for a clean pair of goggles!!.As the race then reached the closing stages,Elderfield caught and repassed Carless before closing very hard on eventual winner Hutchinson.At the flag,Ashley Wilde got home 4th,Matt Burrows 5th,Nathan Rooks 6th and young Sam Winterburn aboard his 125cc Yamaha a super 7th.

   Pro moto two and Elderfield was again the fastest rider away but it was Hutchinson who was recording the quickest lap times and rapidly reeling in the pace-setter.Eventually on lap four,Hutchinson soared into pole position and then extended his advantage,looking set to earn himself another £500 race win purse until a very dramatic conclusion.Two laps from home,the Bikesport KTM rider slipped off but although still remounting as race leader,Elderfield had took the advantage to dramatically reduce the gap!!.On the final lap of the moto,Elderfield was now right on the gas and coming under the Hawkstone bridge for the last time was incredibly back in charge.Desperate to fight back, Hutchinson challenged again but with just three corners remaining,the two riders collided and fell.In the frantic battle to remount,Scott was quickest on his feet and under power to snatch victory with Carless again 3rd,Wilde 4th, Winterburn 5th and another youngster Damon Strydom 6th.In the Battery Energy Pro class MX1 title standings, Whatley as dropped to 4th behind Joe Jones,Sam Simmons and Ashley Wilde.Over in Pro MX2,Strydom gloriously leads the charge from Burrows,Bradshaw and Winterburn.

   In the super Hawkstone action for the Putoline Two-stroke Masters pilots,it was Ashley Wilde who took both moto wins on a dry day one.However with conditions quickly changing for the Sunday action,the victors were then to be James Lassu and Carl Brogden.Backing up his race win with a very consistent hat-trick of second placings,Lassu was to be the eventual overall victor of the two-stroke class with Brogden in 2nd and Daniel Brough 3rd.With Foxhills maximum man Matt Moffat away on RBPN duty,Brough has now leapt to the top of the Putoline MX1 Two-stroke Championship standings with Lassu 2nd and Joe Jones 3rd.In MX2 Two-stroke Championship standings it’s still as you were with Sam Winterburn leading the way ahead of Alex Davies,Cory Joe-Nemeth and Rob Holyoake.Indeed  Winterburn continues to excel in the Masters,bagging both the Battery Energy Pro MX2 and Putoline MX2 Two-stroke overall class wins at Hawkstone.Very well done Sam!!.  

  As predicted in the GSP Race-Products MXY2 contest,leader Dan Thornhill was also away contesting the RBPN so there is now a new series leader.The new lad to catch is KTM mounted Jay Thomes ahead of Scott Alldridge,Rickie Roderick,Neil Roe and Thornhill.At Hawkstone,Adam Darbyshire and Jamie Ellis bagged a brace of moto wins each with Darbyshire the eventual overall victor.Showing just why he is the new Championship leader,Thomas was again very consistent during round four in his way to earning 3rd overall.

  In the always competitive Moto-Pro Suspension BW85cc class,leader Jordan Moxey was a non-starter at Hawkstone so it’s now Tyron Cleaver who tops the Championship chase,six points ahead of Oliver Benton.In the latest action at the weekend, Henry Williams making his first appearance of the season, took the overall win,bagging maximum points in the process.Joining Williams on the podium was Benton and Cleaver.Over in SW85cc,defending Champion Henry Siddiqui still leads the charge from Howard Wainwright,Matt Brame and Dion Lewis.During round four,Siddiqui also topped the podium from Jordan Wright and Wainwright.Unfortunately due to the difficult conditions,race four for the BW/SW85cc Hawkstone class was cancelled for safety reasons and will now be rescheduled at Pontrilas during round five.

    Darryl Maxwell still heads the Scott Acerbis MX1 Amateur class,some 23 points ahead of Matthew Thomas following round four.Although Thomas(2nd) and Maxwell(3rd) were to feature on the Hawkstone podium,overall victory was to go to Andrew Wilson.Making his first appearance of the season,Wilson won the opening three motos before finishing 5th in the final clash behind Gavin Stevenson,Glenn Fletched,Maxwell and Thomas.There was heartache in this class for top runner Luke Meredith,badly injuring ligaments in his left knee during moto one of the weekend.

  Jack Cox continues to dominate the Zook Clothing Amateur MX2 contest,blasting to a very stylish maximum points score at Hawkstone.With Cox in super form,Edward Briscoe maintained his own Championship hopes by earning the overall runners-up slot with a 2/2/8/2 card as Ryan Williams got home in 3rd.In the title chase,Cox now boasts a 64 point advantage at the head of the table from Briscoe and Ryan Crowder.Meanwhile Aled Bellis has slipped down to 4th after recording a DNF in moto three at Hawkstone.

  In Michelin MX1,series leader Jake Alsop was a non-starter and so has now dropped to 8th in the standings with Samuel Kirby the new pace-setter,12 points ahead of William Orritt with Jamie Wilson 3rd.At Hawkstone,Orritt and Shaun Scrivens bagged two moto wins each.However in the last moto decider,Scrivens was a non-starter so it enabled Orritt to claim the overall victory for the weekend with Kirby in 2nd and Sam Chapman 3rd.

 Travelling to Hawkstone,Adam Wells and Emerson Jones were level on points at the top of the Michelin MX2 standings.It’s now though advantage Wells,heading the charts with a 16 point advantage ahead of Jones.The critical race of the weekend was the third clash with Jones down in 7th as his rival Wells bagged another win!!.Throughout the weekend,Wells was infact first past the winning post in the opening three moto’s.Completing the Michelin MX2 podium at Hawkstone was Aidan Wigger.The AMCA Wulfsport British Masters now moves onto Pontrilas with Ken and his team keeping their fingers firmly crossed that the rain stays away and riders can at last display their full racing skills on a dry track!!.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 2) AT FOXHILLS ON APRIL 7TH/8TH    REPORT AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD

    It’s certainly early advantage Kristian Whatley and Neville Bradshaw in the race for the respective 2012 Pro MX1 and MX2 class titles following an all-action round two of the super AMCA Wulfsport British Masters at Foxhills on Easter weekend.One again Whatley blasted his PAR Honda to both MX1 wins,picking up another cool £1,000 cheque whilst Bradshaw on his Evotech Stevens Honda just edged out the flying local Swindon lad James Dunn to take MX2 honours.Also hitting the headlines at the former GP circuit were both Matt Moffat(Putoline Two-stroke) and Jake Alsop(Michelin Masters MX1) as they blasted to impressive,unbeaten class wins.

  With a large crowd looking on,there was to be early drama in the opening Battery Energy Drink supported Pro contest as one of the expected favourites,Stephen Sword was forced out on lap one with a puncture.Although Swordy did rejoin the contest following a quick wheel change,his race was over as the immaculate Whatley stormed to victory.The ride of the moto though belonged to young Dunn,hanging onto a brilliant 2nd spot aboard his HM Plant KTM ahead of Bradshaw,Moffat,Scott Elderfield and Graeme Irwin.

  Desperate to make amends,Swordy was very quick out of the trap in moto two,leading the opening couple of laps before that man Whatley again took control.On lap seven,Bradshaw then also overhauled Sword and that’s the way it remained right to the flag.With another super charge,Dunn moved from 9th up to 4th and was even rapidly reeling in Swordy as Josh Waterman,Irwin,Luke Hawkins,James Cotteral,Elderfield and Moffat held down top ten positions and were always in contention.Clinton Barrs,Sean Frayne and Paul Neale all represented the AMCA in the Foxhills Pro racing with Barrs 10th overall in MX1 whilst over in MX2,Frayne was 13th and Neale 14th,all three lads giving a very good account of themselves.

   There was certainly no doubting the Foxhills star performer in the Putoline Two-stroke class at Matt Moffat blasted to a brilliant four moto wins.Showing it’s incredible popularity,a superb entry of 33 riders took to the line in the two-smokers but no one could halt the storming Moffat!!.On day one,Joe Jones and Daniel Brough proved to be his closest challengers whilst in Sunday’s racing,James Dunn was the runner-up on both occasions.Although Dunn may have been slightly unhappy with his Saturday performance,he did still take some consolation in gaining top slot in the Two-stroke MX2 overall class awards ahead of Sam Winterburn and Alex Davies.

   The GSP Race Products MXY2 contest at Foxhills was dominated by a quartet of very determined racers as Liam Garland,Dan Thornhill,Jay Thomas and Joe Bamfield filled the top four places in every moto contested.Taking top slot was Kawasaki mounted Garland who won three races,his only defeat coming in moto two when Thornhill took glory. With the above lads in such irresistible form the next best in this group were Scott Aldridge and Rickie Roderick.

  After bagging maximum points during round one at Mallory in the Moto Pro Suspension Mini Masters BW85cc contest,Jordan Moxey had to settle for 3rd spot in the opening Foxhills moto as he chased Charlie Putman and Tyron Cleaver home.From here onwards though,Moxey was again to be the boss winning all three remaining clashes and also the overall verdict from Cleaver and Luke Craig.Over in SW 85cc,first round winner Henry Siddiqui was again the top pilot,bagging three moto wins and another top slot on the podium.At Foxhills the immaculate Siddiqui was joined on the box by Taylor Hamill and Harry Kimber.

   In the very competitive Scott Acerbis Amateur MX1 class,Darryl Maxwell(2),Dexter Marks and Glenn Fletcher scored the moto wins.Despite only starting with a 9th place,Maxwell went onto still earn the overall victory,joined on the podium by Matthew Thomas and Jamie Dobson.Whilst Maxwell’s weekend just got better,in contrast Marks was to suffer a reverse of fortunes,finishing with a no-score which restricted him to a final 8th overall.

  Zook Clothing Amateur MX2 produced plenty of super action at Foxhills,typified by a last moto in which Aled Bellis,Jack Cox and Ryan Crowder hotly disputed the race leadership.The win was to be eventually claimed by KTM mounted Bellis who was also the overall victor.Runners-up spot in this class belonged to TM pilot Charles Statt with Cox climbing aboard the last spot on the box.Cox had earlier scorched to the opening Amateur MX2 win of the weekend but a lowly 15th place in moto two was to dent his hopes of taking home the £150 on offer for topping the overall scorecard.

  After bagging the overall Michelin Masters MX1 victory at Mallory,Jake Alsop was at it again during the weekend’s Foxhill bash.On this occasion though,Alsop did it in style with a superb maximum points score.In three out of four moto’s,Jamie McCarthy was Alsop’s closest challenger,also eventually earning the runners-up trophy ahead of Samuel Kirby,Jamie Wilson and the hard charging two-stroke pilot William Orritt.Just like the Mallory contest,Adam Wells and Emerson Jones were the top two aces in the Michelin Masters MX2 pack with victory going to the former. In the Foxhills motos,Wells(3) and Jones(1) took the wins with Aidan Wigger,Steven Turvey and James Milne the next best.

AMCA WULFSPORT BRITISH MASTERS(ROUND 1) AT MALLORY PARK   WORDS AND PICS BY MIKE WOOD


   With a bumper entry,some new sponsors on board and changes to the race format,it was time for the very popular AMCA Wulfsport British Masters to open its 2012 series at Mallory Park,Leicestershire last weekend.And,what a contrast in racing conditions the two day’s of round one were to produce!!.Following a dry Saturday in which the going was ideal,the weather then turned decidedly Wintry as the temperature dropped and rain/sleet fell both overnight and almost continuously during Sunday to leave the circuit extremely heavy but still remarkably raceable!!.Indeed that dramatic change was to prove a major examination of both a riders physical and mental strength with most having their first competitive action of the new season.However typical of the great AMCA Masters spirit that prevails,the riders, officials,marshalls and medical crews just kept smiling,and remained  united in helping to ensure that the round one programme was completed!!.

    With backing from Battery Energy Drink,for the first time at a Masters event,Pro MX1 and Pro MX2 rubbed shoulders in the same unlimited motos.Leading the muddy charge in moto one was Welshman Ashley Greedy followed by Kristian Whatley,James Cottrell,Scott Elderfield,Matt Burrows,Bryan MacKenzie and Darren Coutts whilst other expected front runners,Gert Krestinov and Neville Bradshaw surprisingly found themselves down in 12th and 19th places respectively!!.For the next two laps,Cottrell then splashed his way to the front to replace Greedy before Whatley then quickly became the third different pacesetter.From here onwards,the PAR Honda rider Whatley controlled proceedings all the way to the chequered flag with Cottrell and Coutts in tow.During an incident packed encounter,Bradshaw got back to a superb 4th ahead of Burrows and Krestinov,Greedy dropped to 7th,Elderfield disappeared from proceedings and MacKenzie the 2011 Masters Champion slipped back to 27th before eventually finishing 19th!!.

    Buoyed by that moto one win,Whatley made a great start in moto two,bagging the holeshot and leading the opening five laps.However right on his tail this time was a very determined MacKenzie,desperate to make amends for that lowly opening race finishing position.On lap six,Bryan cleverly out-foxed Kristian to take control as Bradshaw now joined the party for the race leadership.In a great three way tussle,the pressure was on to win that £500 prize for the first rider past the post and once again the money was going to Whatley’s back pocket with Bradshaw nicking 2nd from MacKenzie.Just behind the flying front three was an equally intriguing tussle featuring Krestinov,Greedy and Cottrell which raged right to the finish line,the honours going to Krestinov.Completing the top ten in this contest was Burrows,Matthew Moffat,Coutts and Ray Rowson whilst on both occasions,MX2 pilot Sean Frayne was to be the first AMCA rider home,bagging impressive 15th and 20th places .

   Testing his endurance to the max,Matthew Moffat also competed in the new Putoline 2-Stroke Masters and eventually went onto earn the overall win..Taking the first victory though of the weekend was Wiltshire HM Plant KTM pilot James Dunn with James Lassu,Daniel Brough,Moffat,Sam Winterburn and Harry Lawerence in tow.In moto two,Moffat then outgunned Dunn before it was all change on that wet second day of action.With Dunn deciding to sit out proceedings and concentrate on his Pro class outings,Sunday’s 2-Stroke moto wins went to Brough and Moffat.Brough’s victory in the mud helped ensure that he would join Moffat on the podium,joined by runner-up Lassu.

    Going for a MXY2 title treble,Gloucestershire youngster Dan Thornhill began his campaign in the best style possible by earning the GSP Race Products sponsored event overall verdict at Mallory.In moto one of the weekend though it was Jay Thomas the 2011 Championship runner-up who was first past the post with Thornhill a close 2nd as Matthew Callaghan,Chase Neale,Reece Desoer and Dima Fircks completed the top six.In moto’s two and three,the immaculate Thornhill took both the wins before an eventful final clash!.In moto four,twice Dan worked his way to the front only to crash!!.So,at the flag the victory belonged to Zac Alsop as Thornhill regained his composure to edge out Desoer for 2nd.Alsop’s last race win also ensured that he would join the podium party!!.

     Whilst Whatley bagged both Pro class wins,the only other rider to remain unbeaten at Mallory was Jordan Moxey who blasted to a brilliant maximum score in the combined Moto-Pro Suspension Mini-Masters contest. Young Moxey made a mockery of the prevailing conditions throughout the weekend as Charlie Putnam and Oliver Benton proved to be his closest challengers and also earn the remaining BW85CC podium places.  Tyron Cleaver,Eddie Remmer and Luke Craig also impressed in this opening round.Over in SW85cc,2011 Champion Henry Siddiqui started the defence of his title with a very impressive performance to finish level on points at the top of the standings with Howard Wainwright.However crucially,young Wainwright bagged the final moto win of the weekend,a result which also ensured that he would lift the first place trophy whilst Matt Brame completed the podium.

     What about the Amateur classes then?,well in an incredible Scott Acerbis MX1 contest,Lewis King started with a lowly 24th spot in moto one but still went onto take the overall win.Following that opener in which victory was secured by Jamie Dobson ahead of Darryl Maxwell,Luke Meredith and Luke Spence,King was to recover in style.After taking 2nd spot behind Glenn Fletcher in moto two,King then splashed to both race wins on the Sunday.Joining a delighted King on the podium was Meredith and Ricky Lethaby,the 2011 Raceworld.com Amateur MX2 Champion. Now sponsored by Zook Clothing,who would take the first honours in the always competitive Amateur MX2 class?. Well it was to be Midlands based youngster Jack Cox,a rider who will also be attempting to qualify for the main AMCA MX2 British Championships in 2012.With an impressive 1/2/4/1 scorecard,Cox was the main man in this Zook opener as TM kid Charles Statt and Rocket Centre Honda pilot Ryan Crowder bagged the remaining moto wins.Showing though that consistency is always the motocross keyword,the runners-up slot on the box instead belonged to Edward Briscoe as Lancastrian Crowder  had to settle for 3rd.

     Once again Michelin have very kindly backed the Masters series,supporting both MX1 and MX2 Amateur classes in 2012.Shaun Scrivens were first past the post in the opening MX1 bash chased by William Orritt,Samuel Kirby,Sam Chapman and Jake Alsop.With Scrivens then having a no-score against his name in the next clash,from here onwards it was to be the Alsop show!.Dominating proceedings,Jake bagged a moto win hat-trick to deservedly claim the round one overall from Kirby and Orritt.As for Scrivens,well another no-score in the last moto pushed him back to 15th place in the final standings!!.Over in Michelin MX2,Emerson Jones and Adam Wells rather dominated the Mallory proceedings by filling the top two places in all four clashes.Jones(3) and Wells(1) bagged the wins,being finally joined on the podium by Tom Smith who was equally impressive and boasting a 4/3/5/3 record.Also starting their Michelin MX2 title quest with strong performances were Adam Constable,Aidan Wigger and James Milne.

   For the lads missing out on the main Amateur classes at Mallory,they were able to enjoy four Non-Qualifiers races,the overall verdict going to Stephen Goodwin ahead of Paul Lloyd and Oliver Claxton.With the Mallory action wrapped up,the AMCA Wulfsport Masters now moves to Culham on Easter Weekend for what is sure to be a feast of highly competitive Pro,Youth and Amateur motocross racing!!.
