The new MXGP of La Comunitat Valenciana produced another excellent weekend of racing, with Honda riders putting themselves inside the top 10 in the MXGP, MX2 and EMX250 classes.
Team Honda 114 Motorsports’ Hunter Lawrence led the way with his fifth overall, after two fifth place moto results on a track that didn’t really favour the Australian. He sits in fourth place in the championship as the series now has a weekend off before the MXGP of Trentino. Bas Vaessen also showed encouraging speed after missing out at Valkenswaard with a shoulder injury with his two 11th place finishes for 10th overall while Calvin Vlaanderen of Team HRC kept up his consistent performances with a pair of sevenths. Unfortunately Vamo Racing’s Marshal Weltin wasn’t able to add to his point’s haul, despite running consistent laptimes in his two motos.
The next round of the world championships is in a fortnight’s time is Arco di Trento, Italy which is known as being a rocky, tight and twisty track nestled in the Alps.
