Go Back With just the final round of the 2018 Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean to run at Lyng on October 14 the fight for bragging rights in the Manufacturers’ Championship is shaping up nicely.

The system is simple with the highest finish for each marque in every Maxxis moto counting towards the title total.

In MX1 it’s Honda that’s leading the way which is entirely down to Jake Nicholls (Buildbase Honda) who has logged the best score for Big Red at every round with a total of 241 points.

While Evgeny Bobryshev (Lombard Express Suzuki with PAR Homes) is second in the individual points standings, it’s actually KTM that holds second in the Manufacturers’ Championship thanks to the combined efforts of Graeme Irwin (Hitachi ASA KTM UK) and Brad Anderson (Verde Substance KTM). Between the pair they’ve racked up 211 points for the Austrians.

Suzuki is third due solely to rushing Russian Bobryshev who’s scored 202 points so far this year with Husqvarna fourth on 183 which is mainly down to Elliott Banks-Browne (Geartec Husqvarna) with support from Tony Craig (Planet Suspension/Drysdale Husqvarna) and Luke Parker (GH/Finch/HRM Husqvarna).

In MX2 it’s much more clear-cut with KTM on top on a total of 291 points with series leader Conrad Mewse (Hitachi ASA KTM UK) responsible for the lion’s share of the score with back-up from Liam Knight (Pope Racing KTM) and Josh Spinks (M Smith KTM).

Husqvarna holds second on 249 points thanks to REVO Husqvarna UK team-mates Mel Pocock and Martin Barr with Honda in third on 233 which is down to the combined efforts of Josh Gilbert (Buildbase Honda) and Steven Clarke (Honda Europe/CNC Doors).

With a total of 50 points available in both classes at Lyng the positions could change dramatically so the fight is not over just yet…
