Ashley scored two wins and a fourth place at Namur to become the National Champion of Belgium, aboard his HMR tuned RMZ450. He is the first Englishman to achieve this.
2007 So Far has been a bit of a mixed affair so far. We started the season off with an overall win at the SSM opener, qualified for the British Championship S2 Class at 3 Sisters but finished Rd 1 with a disappointing 8th Overall and then went out to Italy for a weeks testing and to get the HM Racing powered Honda really dialed in.We equaled Max Biaggi’s Supermoto lap record at Latina circuit before the thunderstorm set in and then showed the Italians how to ride Latina in the wet!
We returned with confidence for R2 in the British at Lydd but my health took a turn for the worse with what was a 5-6 week period of hell with a Glandular fever type illness. I managed to end this meeting 9th overall.This illness played havoc with my fitness but I continued to plug away with another 1st place overall at SSM Bordon and a consistent 6th overall in the British R3 Lydden Hill.
A mid season engine tune up by Steve and Suspension service by Perry saw results improve at British R4 Teeside with my Honda finishing 5th overall and now top Japanese bike in the Championship. On to 3 Sisters British R5 and my confidence had been fully restored with consistent finishes pushing for a podium position and ending up 4th overall. This moves me up to 4th overall in the British Championship S2 class and the top Japanese manufactured bike. This weekend was a run out at SSM Lydden Hill and the HM Racing powered Honda went from row 5 to 5th place in half a lap and into 2nd place by lap 5.
My usual SSM 1st place overall was relinquished after a year to Christian Iddon on the factory Aprillia which wasn’t too shabby but I intend on taking my 1st place trophy back at Lydd in 2 weeks time.
All in all, my season is getting better and better and I am expecting to claim my place in the Supermoto Des Nations Under 21 squad which takes place in Italy at the end of September and end the season at Mettet in October.
Many thanks to my sponsors and the HM team for their engine & suspension work and the IIS for the lightening starts and off road grip”.
