Vampires Rock Motul Nationals Yearly Round Up 2014

Vampires Rock Motul Nationals Yearly Round Up 2014

It has been a roller coaster year for Vampires Rock Motul Motocross team but the team have achieved some great results. Not all the championships they were entered in went to plan with the ACU British Youth National switching a date to the middle of August two of the riders had to miss this due to prior family commitments.

T2014-ozziehis left the riders competing in the GT Cup and also the Off Road Motorsport Nationals, ‘ORMS’. Jack Grayshon on board the KTM 65 showed real skill and determination throughout the season and was looking set for a top three in the British Youth Nationals Junior Class and also the GT Cup but was forced to miss out due to the date change. He still managed to qualify for the World Junior Championships in Belgium and gave it his best shot. Only nine years old at the time the pressure got to Jack and he was unable to qualify for the main event, just missing out by two places. Jack has shown maturity this year and we are very sure he will be back there next year fighting hard, he will remain in the 65 class for 2015.

Ozzie Murray also showed massive improvement throughout the year but also suffered from the BYN date change. Never-the-less Ozzie took a win in the French Master Kids Silver Final in Commerce in France and a fourth overall in the ORMS Nationals. Ozzie has shown he has what it takes to win races and we expect 2015 will be a great year for the youngest member of the team. Ozzie will also be staying on the KTM 65 for 2015 championships.

2014-podium-2 Jordan Hearn on board the KTM BW 85 was in good form all year, for his first year riding in big wheel 85 class Jordan rode consistently all year and took a 5th overall in the GT Cup and a podium finish in 3rd at the ORMS Nationals, Jordan will also be staying on the BW 85 for the 2015 championships.

Team Manager Steve Steinman – “I would just like to thank everyone who helped the team this year I really appreciate all the help we received. The boys couldn’t manage to race in so many nationals without your generosity and help and they would like to also say a massive thank you. We are now concentrating on some winter  championships and we look forward to working with you all again in 2015.

Special thanks to Richard at Motul for his massive input into the team and we look forward to working with Motul and all our other sponsors for next year.”

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.”
