Jay Wilsons 1-1-1 increased his win streak in 2023 to 18 races and with it, the 2023 Japanese 1A1 Motocross Championship.

Jay Wilson has made it back-to-back Japanese Motocross Championships after nailing down the 2023 IA1 (450cc) championship after another dominating weekend.

Round seven of the championship at Kyushu was held under dark skies with a series of rain showers falling over the venue throughout the day. Run under a one day, three race format, Wilson was within striking distance of taking the IA1 championship if things fell his way.

The wet and wild conditions indeed scrambled the results, apart from Wilson, who remained rock solid at the front of the field in each of the three championship motos contested on the day. His 1-1-1 increased his win streak in 2023 to 18 races and with it, the 2023 Japanese 1A1 Motocross Championship.

Jay Wilson celebrates his first 450 championship.

“It has been a long haul to secure my first 450cc championship, but it has been worth it,” Wilson said. “I first went to the 450 class in 2016 but it didn’t go well and I had to rebuild my career on the 250.

“There were times when you think success is a long way away or even attainable at all, but with the support of my wife, my family, my friends and Yamaha, I can finally say I’m a 450cc motocross champion and I’m pretty pumped about it.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this and to my team here at Yamaha for so much hard work that goes on behind the scenes. This is for them as much as me,” Wilson concluded.
