Great Entry for GH Motorcycles Evening Motocross – 5th July 2017 – 6pm - Wattisfield Hall
A full entry of 130 riders has been accepted for the GH Motorcycles evening motocross at Wattisfield Hall. From a spectators’ perspective this is one of the most popular motocross events of the year with a 12 race programme finishing at about 8.30pm with 2½ hours of non-stop action.
The entry includes British Championship and Eastern Centre riders Elliott Banks-Browne (Geartec Husqvarna), Lewis Tombs (Lings Husqvarna), Shaun Southgate (Herts MX Honda UK) and 2016 Eastern Centre Champion Luke Parker riding for the event sponsor GH Motorcycles of Colchester. One rider who hasn’t ridden much recently but suspect he will still be very competitive, is former top Eastern Centre Rider Syd Bales.
Three times race winner at the Diss MCC May meeting at Wattisfield, Jason Morland (Aim KTM) has entered the MX class but Jason would have been equally at home in the enduro class as he is the current Eastern Centre Enduro Champion. Unique to this event is a race for enduro riders and this group has an entry of 36 riders competing on machines which have headlights fitted. Some bikes will even be road legal and a number of riders such as Ross Taylor (Ranson Racing Honda) will only just be back from riding last week the 280 mile Welsh 2 day enduro in Mid Wales.
The track at Wattisfield is looking really good as it has been deep cultivated and fully graded following the sidecar Clubman’s British Championship in May. The jumps have also been graded and the drop off into the bomb hole made good to provide maximum air time.
The club would like to say a special thanks to Clarkes of Walsham and GH Motorcycles who have been excellent supporters of club for many years. Their involvement is greatly appreciated. Gavin Hockey, the owner of GH Motorcycles will have a stand on site so check out his products for a good deal.
The important thing to remember is to get there early to get a good parking space.
