Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team record top ten finishes at Horsham

Posted:

Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team‰Ûªs Jay Wilson and Dylan Long got their 2016 Motul MX Nationals campaigns off to an encouraging start at the season opener in Horsham, Victoria.

With round one marking the first official event for the newly formed motocross team, both MX1 pilots Long and Wilson posted results inside the overall top ten at Horsham, in one of the most talent packed 450 classes that Australia has seen in years.

For Wilson, round one also marked his maiden appearance in the MX1 class aboard his CRF450 machine. Wilson showed promising form during the MX1 qualifying session this morning, posting the fifth quickest time, then progressing in to the first GoPro Superpole for 2016, where he finished in fourth position. Following qualifying, Wilson raced to 8th in moto one, followed by 11th in moto two, handing the 21-year-old with 10th overall at the conclusion of round one.

‰ÛÏAfter everything that happened at Horsham for myself personally in 2015, I was really glad to just get through the day and put round one behind me,‰Û
Dylan Long
Dylan Long, who also made his Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team debut in Horsham today, showed that consistency was key at round one ‰ÛÒ taking 7th place in both moto one, and moto two, to eventually be awarded with eighth overall at the conclusion of the season opener.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªre very happy with the result that we got today. We are a new team, and we‰Ûªre on a new bike, so for both Jay and myself to finish inside the top ten especially with so much talent in our class, it‰Ûªs a pretty good starting point for the team,‰Û
