British MX - Sun Shines On Maxxis British Motocross Championship Opener

Stefan has just published the second event review and gallery for the British MX series we’re now covering:

“Donington. The name evokes memories of MotoGP, not motocross. Yet it is at Donington Park in Derbyshire that the Maxxis British Motocross Championship starts its 2008 run. In 2007, Donington Park joined a long list of venues in the United Kingdom with a World Motocross Grand Prix pedigree, and although spectators panned it for its lack of atmosphere and lack of access, the annual Motocross of Nations will be held at the same location, and, to give the track a practice run, the season opener of the top British championship has moved here. It looks to be a good year; generally when the Hawkstone International starts off with sunshine and good weather, that run tends to continue all year long. And so it is with much relief to everyone that the sun and the wind chase the clouds away, for the most part at least.”
