The season kicked off this weekend for the new-look Vampires Rock Motul Racing team as they headed to Mildenhall circuit for the first round of the 2014 GT Cup Nationals. The weather was perfect, which made track conditions ideal and produced some fantastic racing.
The competition was at a high level with all classes full with 40 riders each. Jack Grayshon and Ozzie Murray were first up in the ultra-competitive 65cc class. Jack got off to a flying start and led the race for a number of laps but was just beaten in the closing stages.
He continued to be consistent throughout the weekend with some fantastic riding and finished second overall. Ozzie on the other hand had a difficult weekend running into several problems along the way. He suffered a broken chain and also a split tail pipe and just was not able to make the break through the weekend.
Pulling through from the back in most races he managed to come charging through the pack and finish in a solid top 15 position. Next up was youngster Jordan Hearn in the Big Wheel 85 class, qualifying in 10th place Jordan was looking set for a strong weekend. He was unfortunate to suffer a couple of bad starts but dug deep to work his way back through the pack to finish just outside the top 10 on both days. Steve Steinman – Vampires Rock Racing KTM Team Owner said: “I’m really pleased with the way all three riders rode all weekend at the first round of the championship.
“It is a long season and I am very sure that Jordan and Ozzie will soon be battling up in a top 10 position and Jack will be aiming higher at the top step of the podium! I would just like to thank Motul for the new team camp and for their oil support. Thanks to all our sponsors for their continuous support.”
