Racing News May 2011

After a good start to the season for the Rock Oil supported teams, the fourth round of the British Motocross Championship commenced at Milton Park on the 1st of May. The race that takes the championship up to it's mid-way point, helped consolidate the impressive results obtained by the Rock riders so far.

PAR Honda's Brad Anderson, a former British champion, heads the standings after some solid finishes and a couple of race wins in the past two rounds. The season has also started promisingly for CCM Racing as Stephen Sword, fancied for the title this year, and Tom Church sit in 3rd and 5th respectively. All 3 of these Rock supported riders should be in the frame for the British title at the end of the season.

Tomasz currently leads the Speedway Grand Prix as he continues to ride impressively in search of a consecutive World Championship . Fellow Rock supported riders Chris Harris and three time world champion Jason Crump haven’t started quite so well, but there is still plenty of track time left at this early stage for them to get back into title chasing form.

Rock Oil are also being well represented in the British Superbike EVO class. Newly formed WFR Racing have gotten off to a flyer with Glen Richards winning race one at Brands Hatch and most impressively, Alex Lowes recording three race wins from the first two rounds. In the process of doing so, Alex has also proven the quality of WFR’s bike by outriding many established BSB factory supported riders, finishing as high as ninth in the overall race standings at Brands Hatch. This form has led Alex to the top of the EVO class championship with a 38 point gap to his nearest competitor after two rounds. Both Alex and Glenn look set to continue to dominate the EVO class and also get amongst the full factory superbikes throughout the season.
