With Round 1 of the MX Nationals done and dusted for 2016, the DPH
team will take both the pros and cons from the event in Horsham, Victoria
and focus their energy on the round 2 in Appin.
The day started on a positive note with Jed Beaton taking P1 in the MX2
qualifying with an impressive 1.56 lap time, a whole second faster than
anyone else in the class. Jed then went on to place 6-2 respectively in
moto’s one and two and walked away from the round sitting 5th in the
Championship. There are only 4 points that separate Beaton in 5th and 1st
“Awesome to start off the season with some decent results, I just struggled
with bad starts. Top 5 points are close so I’m pretty excited for round 2”
Lawson unfortunately sat just outside the top 10 in the 450cc class for the
majority of the day after qualifying P12 and placing 11-10 respectively to
take 11th in the Championship. With the return of a number of overseas
riders returning to Oz and some strong 2015 contenders, the 450cc class
will prove to be more challenging than ever but we have no doubt that we
will see Lawson back on the podium in the coming rounds.
“Fairly average weekend racing for me. I’ve always struggled with the
Horsham track. No excuses though, I just didn’t have much speed at
round 1” Said Bopping.
DPH continue their assault on the 2016 MX Nationals Championship at
Round 2 in Appin, NSW on Sunday 17th April 2016.
