This Sunday April 3rd the Phoenix Tools Premier Motocross Championship kicks back into action at the ever popular Landrake Moto Parc which will also host the opening round of the R C Motorhomes Open 2-stroke Championship.
In the Gabriel Expert Open Championship there has been great interest with many wildcard entries including a rider who is in top form at the moment on the Buildbase Honda current leader of the MX Nationals and the British Masters Graeme Irwin, Keiran Banks on the RSS / GP Graffix KTM, Todd Kellett on the Crescent / S J Hodder KTM and Ty Kellett on the Apico / 98Vision KTM and local Cornish kingpin Josh Gilbert on the St Blazey Mx Husqvarna with many more expected who are out to get some track time before Rd 2 of the MX Nationals the following weekend at the same venue. Leading the Championship after the opening round is the Meredith Mx Suzuki of Luke Dean who heads the standings by 7 points from the Tony Maunders Racing Suzuki of Jamie Skuse with fellow Tony Maunders Racing Yamaha of Kelvin Townsend just 5 points adrift of Skuse in 3rd, but there are many more riders entered including last years Junior Champion Jamie Carpenter on the Phoenix Tools Honda, Billy King on the R J King KTM, Ben Butler on the Tony Maunders Racing Kawasaki, the J T R Moto 33 Yamaha of Josh Taylor, Sam Gabriel on the Gabriel Insulations Husqvarna and Luke Craig plus many more.
In the M D Racing Over 35 class the battle will commence between the Tyremarks Husqvarna of Wayne Shimell and the Cheddar Mx / M D Racing Honda of Ben Harmon with Shimell with a 3 points advantage after the opening round, where as in the Over 40’s Stuart Rawlings will be out to extend his 12 points lead over the Gabriel Insulations Honda of Steve Elford, but there are plenty of other riders hoping to do well including Richard Green, Martyn Tucker and James Knatchbull to name a few. In the Over 50’s its David Ford on the Projuice KTM who was top scorer at Rd 1 and will be looking to extend that advantage.
In the Tony Maunders Junior Championship the field is stacked with talent including Harry Linton on the Bridgestone KTM who took the overall at the opening round, but just 2 points adrift is the Oakleaf Building Honda of David Anthony with Tyron Cleaver 3 points behind in 3rd, but with every rider having to qualify for the main Junior Championship race things are not plain sailing.
Landrake will also host the opening round of what is new to the series the R C Motorhomes Open 2-stroke Championship which will include many riders from other classes like Jamie Skuse, James Kensington, Sam Gabriel, Jordan Carter, Steve Elford, James Kensington and Luke Craig, but joining them will be the likes of Leighton Holmes on the Moto 64 KTM, the R C Motorhomes / Gibbs Performance / Armaid KTM of Will Worden, Ben Milward on the Inchains Yamaha and Gareth Northam on the 24/7 Diamond Drilling & Sowing KTM to name a few.
