BRITS TO FOXHILL

June 28th, 2018.



The fierce rivalry between Paul Holmes and Mark McLernon resumes this Sunday when round three of the Cromwell Trucks British Championship rolls into the spectacular Foxhill track, near Swindon in Wiltshire.


Just seven points separate Holmes, the reigning champion, and McLernon the 2016 champion, heading to the spectacular former British GP venue where last year the pair dominated the action.

Holmes took victory in 2017 after bouncing back from a second place in the opening moto, behind McLernon, to win the next two motos. He also arrives at Foxhill as the form man after taking overall victory at round two of this year’s series at Pontrilas.

One man looking to make a mark at Foxhill will be Ireland’s Leon Rogers, who dominated the opening round of the series at Desertmartin to take his debut British Championship win, but who had a disaster at round two where he finished 12th overall. The former British Under 21 Champion goes well at Foxhill, where he was third overall last year, and will be desperate for a return to form as the series reaches its midway point to ensure he stays in the title fight.

This year’s Willcock Holeformers Under 21 championship is developing into a fantastic three-way scrap between England’s Harry Walker, fresh from his exploits in the European Championship, Scotland’s Murray Graham, and on-form Welshman, Dafydd Davies. Just 11 points cover the trio at the top of the table.

Traditionally the Foxhill round draws the biggest crowd of the year thanks to the awesome track and the cracking spectator viewing. In addition, the meeting also features round three of the Maxxis British Sidecar Championship, which boasts a full grid, including all of Britain’s Grand Prix regulars.

Add into the mix some quad support races and a super sunny weather forecast and it promises to be one of the best quad meetings of the year!

Foxhill can be found just a few miles off the M4, near Swindon in Wiltshire, (postcode SN4 0DR). Spectator entry is just £10.00 for adults and £5.00 for kids and OAPs. Camping will be available at £10 on the Saturday night, with on-site catering on Saturday night and Sunday.
