Turkish Delight for Wilvo Yamaha MXGP


A three-week stretch in the FIM Motocross World Championship ended yesterday, as round eighteen concluded at the all-new circuit of Afyon in Turkey. Jeremy Seewer and Shaun Simpson were unsure what to expect from the round, seeing as it was a new stop, but it ended up being kind to both riders.

Jeremy Seewer qualified seventh in the heat on Saturday, which gave him a respectable gate pick on a start that massively favoured the inside. Seewer did not take full advantage of that position on the line in moto one though, as he completed the first lap in eighth, but was quick to make progress on a track that did not exactly make that easy. Seventh was acquired a little over halfway into the moto and then he maintained that position until the chequered flag waved. It was a strong ride and one that he was eager to build on in the second moto later in the day.

A much better start in moto two left Jeremy Seewer in fifth at the end of lap one. Seewer set his sights on the rider in fourth immediately and was hungry for more but could not quite make a pass stick in the thirty-minute moto. Finishing fifth still made the Turkish event one of his most successful outings of the current term, as the thirty points that were gained on the day helped him secure sixth overall in the premier class. There were many positives to take from the eighteenth fixture! Seewer still runs eighth in the standings as well.

Shaun Simpson also had one of his strongest rides of the season, much to the delight of those beneath the Wilvo Yamaha MXGP awning, as he ended ninth and eighth in the two motos. The consistent finishes were acquired after charging forwards in each moto and eventually left him in ninth in the overall classification. The result strengthened his charge in the championship standings as well, as a position inside of the top fifteen is now within reach with two rounds remaining.

The Wilvo Yamaha MXGP crew will now take advantage of a well-earned break before heading to Assen in The Netherlands for the penultimate round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

         Thomas Covington just missed the podium in Grand Prix MX2 in Switzerland

Covingtin zwiss aug 2018
Thomas Covington of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing has missed the podium on one point during the sixteenth match of the MX2 World Championship in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. After a strong third place in the first moto, Covington came in the second moto after a bad start no further than a sixth place with which he finished fourth in the day results.

Thomas continued his upward trend of the second part of the season in Switzerland. In the first moto he quickly took fourth place. In the second part of the game he made an important overtaking maneuver and came third over the finish line. In the second heat he did not take a good start and had to catch up. He gave everything back to a sixth place, but just missed the podium.

Thomas Kjer Olsen had to go deep in the first moto by a fall in the first round. Olsen came back to a tenth place from the rear, but took over in the second moto by coming in fifth. With these results he finished in seventh place in the day standings and remains in third place in the standings.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing now travels to Bulgaria where next weekend the seventeenth race for the World Championship will be held on the circuit of Sevlievo.

Covington Swiss aug 2018
Comment Thomas Covington: "My driving was good all weekend and I'm happy about that. I had a good speed and did my best to achieve good results.I had a hard time at the start and that is really a point that needs to be worked on. We are getting closer to the end of the season and I feel stronger and stronger. I am looking forward to the next two Grand Prix's in Bulgaria and Turkey.
