Delkevic Racing BRT Kawasaki rider Martin Barr made the trip over to Hawkstone Park this weekend for round two of the Michelin MX Nationals championship.
Speaking to Barr post race he explained how his return back from injury panned out across the weekend.
“It was awesome to get back behind the gate for the second round of the Mx Nationals at Hawkstone park,” said Barr.
“After a four week lay off with a broken foot, I knew it was going to be a tough weekend but one I knew I had to get on with to build from for the rest of the season. Day one couldn’t of gone any better with pole and wins, which I wasn’t expecting at all with only coming back but I knew day two was going to be a lot harder with a lot more of the big hitters arriving on sunday.”
“Morning practice started off good with P2, which gave me some confidence for the rest of the day. I grabbed the holeshot in race one and was feeling good, even though I had a slight problem and I dropped off the pace a little but managed to bring it home in fifth.”
“Race two I got another holeshot which was three hole shots out of four over the weekend! Again I felt good for the first ten minutes but then I started to struggle with my race fitness after the time off, I kept going to the end the best I could and managed a P7 which gave me second overall.”
My Delkevic Racing BRT Kawasaki was working awesome and was good to have my whole family there with me, so I’m excited to get back to work and look forward to the rest of the season.”
