Harri Kullas continued his Revo ACU British Championship campaign at Canada Heights on May 22 – a track he likes and where he won the overall in 2021. Harri qualified 5th fastest and then shot out of the start on his Yamaha YZ450F in race one, leading the way, only for the race to be stopped on lap 2. A carbon copy restart saw Harri lead the way early on, before Tommy Searle moved past and edged the win by 2 seconds.
In race two, Harri didn’t quite get such a good jump and was in 4th place, then moved past Shaun Simpson mid-race and finished an eventual 3rd, for 3rd overall.
Harri Kullas “Obviously being sick last 2 weeks didn’t help the preparation for this race. I had holeshot in the first race but Tommy had bit more intensity at this track and he passed me and I finished second behind him.
“Second race had poor start as I was 4th and couldn’t get going first 10minutes, track was also quite dusty so it was hard to push the limit. After half race I felt like I had good flow going and catching Shaun and Josh but only manage to pass Shaun when he made a mistake. I’m quite happy for today. To be able to ride and got the podium was all I could do and ask for”
His team-mate Dan Thornhill was looking good coming into round four of the Revo ACU British Championship, as his injury comeback was well on track. Dan qualified in 16th place and then in race one started just outside the top 10. Holding down 12th place early on, before losing a place to finish an eventual 13th.
Dan was keen to break into the top 10 again in race two and he set himself up to do just that, as he rounded lap one in 8th place. Dan lost a few places but still pushed really hard and looked back to almost full fitness, as he finished a very good 10th place, for 10th overall.
“Another British Championship round under my belt today and a step more in the right direction. With two consistent rides for 10th overall. I’m still working towards the feeling I had at the start of the season and each week we’re making steps. Big thanks the whole team and everyone who support me”
Sam Nunn was on the comeback trail at round four of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship, after injury ruled him out of the previous two rounds.
Sam qualified in 20th place and then didn’t get the best of starts in race one, just outside the top twenty, before making some good early passes to sit in 17th place. Lack of bike time played it’s part though in the latter stages as Sam dropped out of the points to 21st.
A similar start in race two saw Sam in 23rd place, but a smart and methodical ride through the field, meant Sam finished in a very good 15th place at the finish.
A successful return in terms of bike time and points for our MX2 rider.
“Good to be back racing but a real struggle with the shoulder and also not being race fit, just got to keep plugging away and soon I’ll back in the mix.
Looking forward to Lyng next weekend and thanks to the whole team for everything they do”
