Harri Kullas held second in the series as he entered round six of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship, at FatCat Moto Parc in Yorkshire, after closing the gap on series leader to just 13 points at round 5.
Harri qualified 5th fastest, then rounded turn one of the first race in 3rd, behind fast starting John Adamson and Josh Gilbert. Gilbert dropped out and then Harri made the pass on Adamson to lead mid-race and pull a comfortable lead, over Tommy Searle, who moved to second place late on. Harri was 2nd off the line in race two, behind Tommy Searle, then made the pass on lap 4 to lead. Harri initially pulled a small gap but Tommy rallied towards the end and passed Harri with two laps to go, giving Harri 1-2 for second overall.
Harri Kullas “I was looking forward to FatCats as it’s a track I ride well at. My qualifying was ok and 5th place gave me the gate pick I probably would have gone for if I had pole.
I had a good start in race one with 3rd. Gilbert dropped out with a mechanical, and then I had a good battle with Adamson until he made a mistake and I took the lead. I controlled the pace of the race and won from Tommy.
I started race two alongside Tommy but he had the inside line and I tried for many laps to pass him as I felt I had the faster pace at the start. I did pass him like mid-race, but then Tommy passed me soon after a back marker held me up, with a few laps to go”
Dan Thornhill continued his Revo ACU British Championship campaign this weekend, at the deep sand circuit of FatCat Moto Parc in Yorkshire.
After qualifying in 15th place, Dan got a slow start and was 14th at the end of lap one, before riding through the pack to claim 10th by mid-race. Despite his best efforts, Dan couldn’t make any more places up, but still a strong ride.
A similar start for Dan in race two made it a tough job for him, but again he passed a number of riders to pull through to 11th at the finish, giving him 10th overall.\
Dan Thornhill – “Warm day at the office today.
Two poor starts made things difficult. Made my way up into the top 10 in Moto 1. And did the best I could In Moto 2 after losing my rear brake on lap one in a collision, to end up 11th
Consistent rides today but I’m still searching for more”
Sam Nunn continued his Revo MX2 ACU British Motocross Championship campaign this weekend at FatCat Moto Parc in Yorkshire.
After qualifying in 15th, Sam had a tough start to race one, as a first lap fall left him in around 25th place. Sam made some great progress though, moving to an impressive 13th place by the end of the race.
A similar story in race two for Sam, as another fall early pushed him out of the top 20 once again, and he had to do a similar job of battling back through the pack for another 13th.
“Very hot today at Fat Cats. Really happy with my speed and fitness but first lap crashes in both races made it even harder for me.
I did push through in both motos to 13th place so I was happy with that. Thanks to the whole team and everyone involved for their help”
