Australian Jed Beaton got his first taste of competition in 2020 at a wet and windy Hawkstone International with respectable fourth-place MX2 class results.
Despite hugely challenging weather and difficult, sandy track conditions Beaton showed impressive speed around the iconic British circuit. Beaton kicked his day off with a seventh-place finish in race one. Charging his way forwards from 20th, despite the near torrential rain, he broke inside the top 10 for a hard-fought seventh.
Saving his best until the day‰Ûªs second MX2 moto, Beaton had a much more straightforward race compared to the rain-lashed first race. From a mid-pack start he quickly worked his way into third and then into the runner-up position where he remained alone for many laps before eventually securing a deserved second-place result for fourth overall.
