Liam Knight kicked off the Saturday for Dyer and Butler KTM at the Red Bull Pro Nationals in Weston Super mare, coming 9th in the Elite youth cup Rookie qualifying. Going down in lap 3 of race 1 did nothing to deter Liam as he finished up the race in 11th.
Jamie Law was up next up in the pro class qualifying; a time of 1:50 gave him 7th pick of the gate. Moto 1 was a closely fought, with no room for error. After recovering from a mid-race slump, Jamie picked up the pace coming across the line 3rd in the mx1.
A 4th in Liam Knights second race of the day was the perfect way to end the Saturday.
The Sunday started early with Lee Foyle in the 125 2strokes Championship, qualifying in 12th position.
It was the Elite youth cup next and Liam was to build on the confidence gain from Saturday. Coming round the first corner in the top 10 he slowly moved through the pack to 2nd and holding on till the chequered flag.
Lee Foyle had a good start in his first race of the day and was riding strong until a crash left him without goggles and struggling to find his rhythm. He eventually crossed the line 10th in the expert class. Lee’s luck wasn’t to improve in moto 2, as he became tangled in a first corner pile up. The track conditions were tough but he put his head down eventually coming over the line for another 10th in the experts.
Another solid performance in moto 2, secured Jamie Law a 5th in the mx1 class.
Liam’s last race of the weekend started off well with a good start, but a mistake on the last lap cost him his 4th place leaving him battling it out in 14th. Regardless of this Liam still managed a 6th overall and now is 10th in the championship.
A disappointing last race for Jamie put a damper on an otherwise great weekend. After a great start he sat comfortably in 7th position but dropped the bike in the whoops section leaving him battling it out, just outside the top ten. With two consistent rides in the previous races Jamie Law now sits 5th in the championship.
Lee Foyle was determined to improve in the final race of the day, and he did. A great start put him in 5th around the first corner. The rough conditions suited Lee’s riding style, only dropping 2 positions he cruised to the flag in 7th and is now sitting 10th in the championship.
