Over the bank holiday weekend, Warmingham Lane motocross track in Cheshire played host to the third round of this year’s AMCA motocross championships, with Bridgestone riders once again dominating the proceedings in the main classes.
Team Apex KTM have definitely hit the ground running this season, and despite having never visited the track before, Jamie Wainwright was absolutely flying in the MX2 class for the overall win.
In the MX1 class teammate Gary Gibson held on for his first overall win of the season, fending off a strong challenge from fellow Bridgestone rider Josh Waterman who was forced to settle for second. JSR Racing’s James Dodd, Andy Smart & Ashley Thomas also took 4th, 6th and 7th respectively on the Battlecross rubber.
In the veterans class, SRH Racing’s Jamie Powell went into the weekend leading the class, and started well with an opening moto victory over the Lane brothers, although the pair would turn the tables later in the day to relegate Jamie to second, a single point down on James Lane.
Elsewhere the third round of the British Championships was underway at Canada Heights, with the high flying Josh Gilbert taking 3rd overall after negotiating a tricky pile-up in the second moto for the Honda Adventure Centre squad. Scottish MX1 hopeful John Adamson, backed by AAA Motorcycles, also took 7th in the ultra competitive MX1 field.
There were also 6 wins for Suzuki mounted veteran Darren King at Culham with Portsmouth Club.
