Searle back to winning ways in Britain

Yesterday (Sunday) marked the second round of the Maxxis British Championship, which took place at the iconic “Lyng” circuit in Norfolk, under sunny skies and in front of a large crowd. Despite the Baltic temperatures, the action was hot with BOS Factory Kawasaki rider, Tommy Searle and Shaun Simpson battling hard throughout both motos.

The day started well for Searle who ended qualification in a strong first position, setting himself up with first gate pick for the day's races. After having succumbed to the pressures of main title rival Simpson at round one back in March, Searle was eager to make amends. In moto 1, Searle didn't get the best of starts, giving himself a big task to fight through the pack and get on the back of Simpson. Despite managing to do so, the KX450 rider had to settle for second position, meaning it would all come down to the final moto of the day.

With the crowd behind him, Searle got a much better jump in moto 2 and settled in tot eh race right behind his KTM mounted rival. The track at Lyng had become quite rough and very “one-line”, so getting past was proving tricky. However, with only a couple of laps to go Searle dived past going up the famous “Cadders Hill” and finished off the day with an awesome race win, and with it the overall.

We now move onto round three in three weeks time at Canada Heights, only two points of the Championship lead.
