Jay Wilson takes double honours in NSW Motocross Championships

12-07-10

GMR Motorex KTM racers contested the third and final round of the NSW Motocross Championships on 9 & 10 July at Lakes, with Jay Wilson walking away with double class honours in both the 15 years two-stroke and four-stroke Lites classes.

The hilly venue was rain soaked and extremely muddy, causing the cancellation of all classes up to and including the 9-11 years 85cc category leaving Reece Rayner on the sidelines for the event however both Jay Wilson and Scott Mann lined up in the demanding conditions.

Jay collected the round win in the 15 years two-stroke class and placed 4th in the four-stroke category, securing sufficient points to take the two Championship classes.

“I am really stoked to take out the two number one plates for the Championship, said Wilson.

“I led both classes coming into the final round so there was a little bit of pressure to stay consistent in the tough conditions. I really love racing the mud so I just kept focused and won the round on the 150 and finished 4th on the 250. I picked up enough points to hold the lead in both classes and bring home the wins.

“I just want to thank my family for all of their encouragement, my personal sponsors and especially GMR Motorex KTM and all of their sponsors for the awesome support.”

Team Manager Glenn Macdonald said “This season Jay chose to contest the NSW Motocross Championships, rather than the QLD titles and I am really proud of his achievement.

“Last season Jay won the 85cc World Title and the QLD 85cc Championship and now picks up another two Championships in his final year as junior after also having just won the Sunshine State Series in the 15 years Lites.

“2010 is shaping up to be a huge year for Jay as he heads off to Indonesia and then prepares for the Australian Junior Motocross Championships.

“The team congratulates Jay on his Championship results.”

The event saw the return of Scott Mann from injury, competing in the 13-14 years two-stroke Lites and taking the round win.

“It feels good to win the round at Lakes this weekend, said Mann.

“I was a bit tight at the start of the event because I have been off the bike for quite a while and focusing on my off-bike fitness while my shoulder healed. However, everything really clicked into place for me in the final moto, I got a great start and held a tight inside line in the drag up hill. My line choices were much better and I rode the downhill ruts well, so I finished on a good note.

‘I will now step up my on bike training in the lead up to the worlds in France.”

“Scott has just returned from injury, so a win at the Lakes round was a great result, said Macdonald. “He was a little tense in the first two races, collecting two second place finishes. We spent a bit of time analyzing his strategy for the final race and he rode exceptionally well, taking the win.

“The 2-2-1 results secured the win for the round against some tough competition.

“Scott now turns his focus to the World Junior Motocross Titles in France where he will be representing Australia in the 85cc class.”
