Ben goes MX1 for Foxhill!

26 August 2017

Go Back Newly-crowned Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship MX2 champ Ben Watson moves up to the MX1 class at Foxhill tomorrow for the final round of the 2017 series.

The 20-year-old Hitachi KTM UK rider assures us that hes not testing the water for a possible full-time move to a 450 in 2018, instead hes just mixing it up purely for fun.

I'm really excited to race a 450 this weekend, said Ben. I have wrapped the MX2 title up so it's just for fun. I really enjoy riding a 450 so I thought why not? I won't take anything too seriously but I know when I get on the gate I will still be giving it 100 per cent.

The action gets under way at 9am with the first race at 11.55am. Admission on the gate is 20 for adults and 5 for children with family tickets priced at 45. Foxhill is four miles east of Swindon. Postcode is SN4 0DR.
