Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha rider Harri Kullas will focus on improving his starts for the next Revo MXGB round.

Kullas let himself down with two bad starts at Lyng on Sunday but clawed his way back to gather important championship points in Norfolk.

After qualifying in ninth place, Kullas was just outside the top ten at the beginning of race one.

As the track got rougher, the Estonian made moves up the leaderboard to sixth place by mid-race and looked to close down the Honda of Tommy Searle, but fell just short.

Race two saw Kullas’ start woes continue as he was buried in around 25th, before ending lap one 18th and scything through the pack into the top ten after three laps. He made some more passes to lie seventh at the end, as he closed down Adam Sterry, but wasn’t quite close enough to pass.

“Second round I have mixed feelings. Result wise definitely not happy but again riding was better and going in the right direction. I think bad starts cost me better results as the level is high at the moment,” said Kullas.

“First race I started around 10th and slowly worked my way to sixth and catching top five, but ran out of time. In the second race had even worse start in around 25th. I made a very good four laps into top ten, finishing seventh. I’m happy with progress. Just need better starts to end up higher next time.”

Kullas moved up to fourth in the MX1 series standings.
