MX Nationals boss Paul Irwin did not agree with the date change of the Revo MXGB at Foxhill, which was announced by organisers RHL this morning, as it now creates a clash between the both championships.
The Foxhill round of the Revo ACU British Championship has been moved to a one day event on Saturday 19 of June, instead of Saturday June 13. This then resulted in a clash with the MX Nationals Championship round at Hawkstone Park.
All classes are racing both days at the MX Nationals this season, which means riders will have to miss the British championship completely or race at Foxhill on Saturday, missing day one of the MX Nationals, then drive to Hawkstone to compete on Sunday.
After the news was released earlier, Irwin immediately posted on social media stating: “I didn’t work with RHL on this. I said it wouldn’t work. I feel sorry for the riders getting screwed by the ACU again.”
He also stated he said to RHL it was a bad idea and saying splitting the entry between two different championships would ultimately weaken the entry in both series, and also moving his Hawkstone Park race was not an option, as the organising Salop club could not accommodate a different date.
