Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha rider Harri Kullas continued his excellent form and Revo ACU British Motocross Championship title push last weekend at Blaxhall.

Kullas qualified in sixth place, which he was a little disappointed with, but he got a great jump out of the gate and raced into the lead in the opening moto.

Adam Sterry was close early on, but Kullas was lapping two or three seconds faster than anyone and pulled a comfortable lead to emphatically win by 20 seconds.

In race two, Kullas produced another storming holeshot ahead of Shaun Simpson. The Scot pushed hard to try and move past Kullas early on. However, the Finnish rider edged away and built a gap before Simpson again got close.

Then on lap 10, Kullas slipped off on a right-hand turn, allowing Simpson and Bobryshev through.

The heavens opened for the last third of the race, and Kullas initially pushed but then backed off, knowing third in the race would give him the overall win.

“Good points again, and to get a win is always nice,” said Kullas. “Two rounds to go so we need to focus and keep going strong until the last race.”

With the 29-year-old adding another 45 points to his championship total, he has now moved level on points with Tommy Searle but takes over the red plate from the two-time champion.

Duns in Scotland and Landrake, Cornwall are the two remaining rounds for this year’s championship.

Next up for Kullas is the Landrake round of the 2021 Michelin MX Nationals on August 15.
