GASGAS Motorcycles enjoyed a strong debut in the opening round of the 2021 ProMX Championship at Wonthaggi on Sunday, led by a mix of supported riders across various classes in the new-look series.
With GASGAS Racing Team factory MX1 rider Aaron Tanti sidelined following a pre-season wrist injury, the attention was turned to fellow GASGAS racers at the opener. Tanti‰Ûªs MC 450F was still on display this weekend and he‰Ûªs looking to return for round two next month.
In the new MX3 ranks, after qualifying in P3, Blake Fox rode his MC 250F to the win in moto one and ended the day in second overall, while MC 125-mounted Jack Simpson also won a race and took runner-up for the round in the 125 Cup.
Fox was impressive on debut with GASGAS, powering to the race one win to open the season, before he took second in the second outing and that same position overall for the weekend following a count-back in what were difficult, rain-affected track conditions.
‰ÛÏI was really happy to win the opening moto and the finish second on the podium this afternoon for GASGAS and everybody behind me." Fox commented.
"Round one was definitely full of challenges with the weather, butthe results were good and I‰Ûªm confident that we will be able to improve on them further when we get to Canberra in a few weeks!‰Û
