The weekend of the seventh round of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels is rapidly approaching, and with a heatwave forecast for the UK, the weekend should be an extravaganza for riders and spectators alike.

Joining us again at Blaxhall will be the MX2 and MX1 adults along with the BW85 and MXY2.

The sandy tracks of Blaxhall will showcase the riders technical and precision skills with it’s cursive layout and natural terrain – it’s an impressive track for not just the riders but the spectators similarly.

The preceding round for the MX1 class was at Foxhill; the riders gave a spectacular performance, with Tommy Searle advancing his championship lead, although running second below Harri Kullas by five points for the weekend overall podium. Evgeny Bobryshev joined MXGB again after two rounds recovering from injury and ended up third on the podium securing back the points he had lost during his recovery. Shaun Simpson progresses into third place in the overall championship standings after picking up his first race win after a frustrating start to the championship.

Brad Todd, first place MX1 Expert, not only is making his way up the MX1 standings but is advancing his lead in the ACU Expert cup after Foxhill.

Latecomer to the championship James Dunn of the Revo Seven Kawasaki team was seen on the podium picking up a second-place expert cup trophy and close behind was Stuart Edmonds, who is no stranger to the podium.

Conrad Mewse remains top of the table in the MX2 class extending his point lead to a hefty 37 points in front of current MX2 expert champion Steven Clarke.

Clarke is putting his name forward to become both expert and MX2 champion as he rounded off Foxhill taking home two first-place trophies.

John Adamson was seen back on the podium for the first time since the first round at Culham.

Wilson Todd and Ashton Dickinson were missing from the podium; however, still picking up consistent points.

Second place in the expert cup still belongs to French rider Florian Miot, admittedly 47 points behind Clarke but is steadily picking up points. Newcomer to the podium was Calum Mitchell with 35 points.

In the MXY2 class, there are some imposing battles in the 250cc class. It will make for an interesting race with one point between championship leader Alfie Jones and Jude Morris. At Whitby Jude won three out of the four races and ended up first on the podium whereas Alfie came third, the lowest down the podium he has been this season. Sam Atkinson and Jack Lindsay sit comfortably in third and fourth but have not been ruled out for championship winners just yet.

The 125cc class will also be action-packed over the weekend, with Bailey Johnston contending Ollie Colmer for the championship title. Jak Taylor was for the second round in a row seen taking home a second-place trophy and is showing great improvements throughout the past rounds.

The youngest category racing at Blaxhall will be the Big Wheel 85cc and once again Wal Beaney was top of the podium at the end of Whitby and is rapidly working his way up the championship table. Tyla Hooley, who remains snug at the peak of the championship table, was second over the weekend at Whitby. Billy Askew, who was third on the podium, is now third in the overall championship standings. Not forgetting that Ben Mustoe and Finley Evans are still competitors for the championship standings.
