F&H Kawasaki riders on Hawkstone
The F&H Racing team got their season underway in the UK at the Hawkstone International event which took place on Sunday. It was a good weekend for the team with all three riders showing what they could do.
Adam Sterry was the most impressive of the trio and was less than a lap away from going 1-1 but a late crash in the second moto cost him. The Brit did end up second overall though and was very impressive.
Young Dutch talent, Roan van de Moosdijk showed good speed and consistency as he ended eighth overall.
German, Jacobi showed some blistering pace but had some bad luck as he ended up eleventh overall on the day.
“Only positive about today, a small mistake cost me the day’s victory but I am very satisfied, the riding is good and the starts are good too, there is a lot of people here and that is of course very nice and creates a good atmosphere that combined with a good result for a successful race day. “

“From time training I felt good on the track, the fourth qualifying time gives me confidence. The first moto started well until I was hit by another rider and I crashed, I think I fell back to the 25th. place to come back to eleventh place, the speed was good, the result was a bit less. The second moto I rode the whole race in the top five and finished fifth. The start of the Superfinal was a bit worse but I came home in tenth I am satisfied with that.”
“The time training went well and I managed to put the fifth best time on the clock. The first moto was not very good, but from the tenth place I managed to come back to third place, but the second moto started very well in second, unfortunately I had a ‘mapping’ issue which meant I had to leave the race early. I started the Superfinal in mid pack and came back to eleventh place, which was a good preparation for the first GP in Argentina.”
On March the 2nd and 3rd the FIM World Championship starts in Argentina. Two weeks after that the first KNMV Dutch Masters of Motocross will be held in Axel in Zeeland.
