250cc race results: AMA Nationals RD6 – Southwick


Race One: Jett Lawrence took the moto one win but it wasn’t as easy as it should have been! The Aussie holeshot and was checking out on Cooper until he went down and lost the lead to the American. Jett quickly regrouped and re-took the lead but Jo Simoda smelt blood and went after the Honda ride, aggrssively passing Cooper and keeping Jett honest until the last lap – but he couldn’t quite get close enough to really push for a pass.

Hunter Lawrence had a nightmare. A bad start meant he was coming from outside the top ten, then, when he was going for a top six position he clipped wheels with another rider and went down hard and was very lucky not to get ridden over by the pack. Hunter got up in 16th and fought all the way back to sixth by the flag and is now three points behind Jett in the series. A fire up Hunter then waited for Robertson who was potentially the rider who he collided with in the crash and then words were said and attempted punched thrown by both before Hunter rode off still mad at the situation!
