PROMX MX1 RACE RECAP RD4 MAITLAND | Latest | News | Race Reports

Boost Mobile Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster retained his single-point lead in the Thor MX1 standings of the ProMX Championship in Maitland.

Boost Mobile Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster won two of the three Thor MX1 races of the ProMX Championship to take the Maitland round win on countback over title rival Jed Beaton (CDR Yamaha Monster Energy), with yesterday’s moto winner, Nathan Crawford (KTM Racing Team, just one point further back.

Webster rebounded from his fifth-place result yesterday to win Sunday’s second Thor MX1 moto of the weekend. Crawford beat the pack to the first turn, but Webster shot into the lead and was never headed from, finishing 5.1 seconds ahead of Beaton.

After losing spots early as he struggled to get into the flow of the race, Crawford regrouped to finish third, making a last lap pass on Kirk Gibbs (GASGAS Racing Team) for the final spot on the podium. Empire Kawasaki’s Luke Clout rode a solid moto to complete the top five, more than 30 seconds behind Gibbs.

In the final MX1 moto of the round, Webster capped off a great weekend by taking a 3.16s win over Beaton after a race-long duel.

Gibbs stole the show off the start by scoring a great holeshot and leading the opening laps, but was passed by both Beaton and Webster on the third lap, as the two series front-runners went toe-to-toe.

After stalking Beaton for most of the race, Webster pulled the trigger with 10 minutes to go to make a pass and take the victory. Crawford finished a distant third after eventually getting the upper hand on Gibbs, while Clout finished a lonely P5.

In the championship standings, the one-point gap between Webster and Beaton remains as we head to Murray Bridge next month (202 points to 201), while Crawford is 25 points further back on 176.
