Round two of the REVO ACU British Motocross Championship kicked off yesterday just outside of Norwich, at the Cadders Hill motocross track in Lyng. With his teammate Wilson Todd sitting out this race recovering from arm pump surgery, all eyes were on Taylor Hammal on the green KX250 this weekend. The day started off strong, with a 3rd position in qualifying after putting in some fast laps.
Race one would see a top 6 start from the young 575, and was able to make his way through to third by about halfway through the race. Hammal wasn’t quite able to catch 2nd place but finished a comfortable 10 seconds ahead of 4th.
Race two would see a better start and great racing from Hammal, but a few mistakes on a tricky to pass track with changing weather conditions would see a few falls, missing out on a better finish in the second race. However consistency over the day would reward him with a 2nd overall, as his first ACU British Motocross Championship podium. Taylor Hammal has now also moved up into 2nd overall in the points championship, behind Conrad Mewse.
The next round of the REVO ACU British Motocross Championship will be on the 6th June at Canada Heights.
