Honda and KTM on top!

25 October 2018

Go Back Thanks mostly to the heroic efforts of Jake Nicholls, Honda has topped the manufacturers' MX1 points table in this year's Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean.

With the best moto results from each round counting towards the final score, Big Red won with a total of 279 points with the Buildbase Honda rider who ended the season second after sitting out the final round with a broken leg responsible for all but 38 of them.

"It's a fantastic achievement to win this for the second year in a row," said Honda UK Off-Road Sales Manager Graham Foster-Vigors. "It just goes to show that the CRF450R is the bike to be on in MX1. Jake and the Buildbase Honda team have done a tremendous job this season and it's a richly-deserved accolade."

The remaining scores came from Gert Krestinov (Phoenix Tools Apico Honda Racing) and Petar Petrov (Buildbase Honda) at Lyng.

Suzuki was second on 246 points all of them down to new champion Evgeny Bobryshev (Lombard Express Suzuki with PAR Homes) with KTM a further 20 points adrift in third.

In MX2 the championship went to KTM on 334 points thanks mainly to champion Conrad Mewse (Hitachi ASA KTM UK) with back-up from Liam Knight (Pope Racing KTM) and Josh Spinks (M Smith KTM).

Husqvarna ended the series in second on 294 points due to the efforts of REVO trio Mel Pocock, Martin Barr and Dylan Walsh with Honda third on 275 points with Josh Gilbert (Buildbase Honda) scoring all but 20 which were earned by Steven Clarke (Honda Europe/CNC Doors).
