Controversy surrounded the ACU after round one of the British Championship at Hilton Park, but with steps taken to push the British flagship motocross series forward the Heads and All Threads Suzuki team turn their attention to round two at Lyng tomorrow (April 5).
Both Graeme Irwin and Harri Kullas fell short of getting the results they expected at round one, but after some good rides at the MX Nationals, they’re both confident they can climb onto the podium this weekend.
“We’ve done some testing this week, and improved a few things, so I just want to get out of the start better, then we’ll see,” said MX2 pilot Harri Kullas. “I had a good Nationals race two weeks ago, so if I can get the start, I want to be top five, even top three. I’m just looking forward to it, it’s still early in the season, so we’ll do our best and move forward.”
Graeme Irwin said about the Cadders Hill round: “I’m ready to go, everything’s sorted, and we had a good day testing on Wednesday, so I’m looking for a podium.” The MX1 pilot added: “It’s about time I turned this season around.”
Neil Prince, Team Manager commented: “We’ve got Graeme more comfortable on the bike with a few little adjustments on the suspension, and hopefully we can get Harri out of the gate better and at the front this weekend. I know what they’re both capable of, and having them comfortable on the bikes is a big part of them taking it to the races.”
