What a day at Lower Drayton for JSR.

James Dodd #292 & Andy Smart #10 both entered into the MX1 Superclass. This was the first time since their California motocross holiday that they’d been on the track together. So we were excited to see how they would get on!

Race 1:

James got the hole shot and didn’t look back. He finished the race in 1st place with a 9 second lead.

Andy wasn’t far behind, he had an awesome start and was top 3 into the first bend. Unfortunately for Andy he stalled his bike however, he managed to work his way up to finish the race in 4th place.

Race 2:

Once again James was in the top 3 to the first bend and managed to work his way up to 1st. Mid way through the race a rock hit his goggles and damaged his roll off system which meant he had to call in for a speedy pit stop for a new set of goggles. With all this going on, he still managed to finish the race in 3rd position.

Andy had another great start to race 2 however he had managed to get water in the kill button which caused his bike to stop. Luckily we managed to resolve this very quickly and easily in the pits but it did mean Andy had a DNF.

Race 3:

James was on fire today. He had a great start and was in the top 3 into the bend again. He finished race 3 in 1st place with a 4 second lead.

Andy had a good race 3 and managed to work his way through the pack to finish in 6th place.

James left Lower Drayton with his first trophy of the season with our favourite number on it – #1!

We are so proud of James and Andy, they both rode exceptionally well today. Well done to you both – what an amazing start to the 2019 season!
