Neville Bradshaw 2nd overall at Round 4 of British Champs

Hawkstone Park, Shropshire

Hey everyone. It was the 4th round of the British motocross championship this weekend at Hawkstone Park in Shropshire. It was a really hot day, and the track was surprisingly dry after the week of rain we have had.

Qualifying went well, I put a fast lap in on the first lap of qualifying and was 5th for most of the session, however was able to find another half a second on the 2nd last lap that moved me up to 4th, just 0.8 seconds off pole.

Race one didn't start off too great. I got boxed in going down the start straight, and rounded the first lap in 9th. I moved forward on the first few laps and moved into 7th by half race distance. I was battling to find a good rhythm, however was able to move up to 5th by the finish. Not a result I was too pleased with.

The second race I managed to get a clear first lap in. I was able to move from 8th to 3rd within 3 laps. By that time the leaders were 10 seconds ahead, so I put my head down and managed to put some fast laps in, and I moved onto the back of Steven sword by three quarter distance. I kept him honest most of the race and finished in 2nd, which gave me 2nd overall.

I am happy with 2nd overall and also pleased to move back into 2nd position in the championship. We have a few things to work on and will come out swinging for the second half of the season.

The overalls were:
1.) Steven Sword
2.) Neville Bradshaw
3.) Martin Barr

Thanks to all my sponsors and everyone for their support at the races.
