Three Nationals in Four Weeks

Team Vampires Rock Motul keeps Rocking On

Three Nationals in Four Weeks

It has been a very busy few weeks so far for the Vampires Rock Motul Motocross team, with many of the Championship races falling week after week. The fifth round of the GT Cup was the first national Jordan Hearn on the BW85 rode exceptionally well all weekend with three top 10 finishes and 14th overall, he is now lying in eighth in the Championship standings with two races still to come.

All the team were present and racing at the British Youth Nationals at Culham Park. The Junior riders Ozzie Murray and Jack Grayshon had a solid weekend. Jack managed to finish in fifth overall on a very demanding track after torrential rain over night that nearly stopped the second round before it even started. Jack is now lying in fourth place overall in the Championship standings and has now been chosen to ride in the World Junior Championships in Belgium this year. Ozzie also had a good weekend, he gained poor starts in each race and had to battle through the packed 40 riders to gain two 20 positions, finishing in 24th overall over the weekend.

Jordan Hearn faced an extremely competitive class in the 85 series and one of the toughest series in the Championship. In only his first year, Jordan is doing a fantastic job and secured five top 20 finishes over the weekend and lies 17th after two rounds.

The ORMS National at Pontrilas was the third round for the Vampires Rock Motul team and the weather was perfect, the track dry and hard pack so some fast racing was on the cards. With only Jordan and Ozzie competing, both did a great job. Ozzie got good starts and was consistently finishing in the top four, he managed to finish in third overall over the weekend. Jordan rode well but struggled with his starts but was still able to gain five top ten finishes, he is now lying in eighth overall in the Championship standings with two rounds remaining.

Team Manager/Owner Steve Steinman – “I’m really pleased with all my riders, they are all doing great and reaching the goals they set out for themselves. I’m very proud of Jack for getting picked to ride in the World Championships he’s really worked hard over the last few years and it’s well deserved. All the boys are improving every week and I couldn’t be happier with their results. Jack and Ozzie will be competing as part of the British team at the Masterkids in Commercy, France and they will also be riding in the Everts and Friends in Belgium later in the year.  A big thanks to all our sponsors for their support and I will look forward in reporting back to you with the next championship results.”

Three Nationals In Three Weeks For Team Vampires Rock Motul

Three Nationals In Three Weeks For Team Vampires Rock Motul

Off Road Motorsport, British Youth and the GT Cup

Vampires Rock KTM Motul Racing Team Vampires Rock KTM Motul Racing Team Vampires Rock KTM Motul Racing TeamWell it’s been a busy week for the team over the last three weeks. First up was the Off Road Motor Sport Nationals second round at the Sherwood.  Weather was great and the track conditions perfect. First up was the Junior 65s with Ozzie on top form taking a 4th in race one and then two 3rd places in race two and three. Day two Ozzie took three second places and his first holeshot in race three so a great weekend for the youngster of the team. Ozz took to the podium with a well deserved second overall.
In the Big Wheel class Jordan also rode superbly with some great top ten finishes.  Jordan also rode great and came home 4th overall over the weekend and is now lying in a superb 3rd overall in the championship standings.

Next up came the British Youth Nationals at Fat Cats Moto Parc. With full start gates in all classes this was going to be fast and furious. First up was the juniors with Jack and Ozzie up against the best of the best from England, Wales and riders crossing the waters from Ireland to compete is what is the premier ACU championships.  Jack came out flying from the gate and took the first moto win and Jacks first ever win in a National competition. Ozzie didn’t fare so well off the gate and came fighting back through the big field of riders into the top 20. Jack rode superbly all weekend and finished on the podium in a great third overall. Ozzie also rode very well but with some bad starts and one DNF after a bad crash he still managed to fall just outside the top twenty and lies 24th overall.  Next up came Jordan on the big wheel 85. This class has got to be the fastest class and most spectacular to watch. Jordan rode strong and fast all weekend finishing in the top twenty in every race. Jordan also didn’t get the starts he wanted but came through the field with some impressive riding. Jordan now lies in a well deserved 18th overall.

GT Cup was the next National at Warmington. Weather was good and the track was going to be tough and demanding especially for the little bikes. Jack and Ozzie took to the track first with Jack getting off to a great start to the weekend finishing second overall on day one. Ozzie had technical problems and pulled out of the weekends racing. Jack also had problems on day two so both the little riders bowed out of the overall standings. Next up was Jordan on the BW 85 who managed to put some good consistent rides in. Finishing in a good fifteenth overall over the weekend and now lying in twelfth in the championships, Jordan has his sights set on the top ten.

I would just like to thank the boys for the hard work and positive performances over the last three weeks. “It’s been a really tough few weeks” said Steve, team boss “and the boys have handled the pressure great.” I would also like to thank all our sponsors who help make this happen.
