Ben Watson who clinched the MX2 British Championship title at round seven of the series has decided to change classes this weekend. The Hitachi KTM UK rider will contest in the MX1 class on a 450cc instead of the normal MX2 class.
After winning the MX2 series Watson has decided to change things up and he’s not the only one to do that. Graeme Irwin who won the MX1 title will contest both classes this weekend.
Watson has decided to only do the one class probably due to the amount of races he has contested this year and he will also have a long journey to America after the British Championship at Foxhill.
See Ben doing some testing on the 450 below:
