Motocross News
Kyle Peters takes solid steps forward at Shepparton

Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki’s Kyle Peters took positive steps forward and collected valuable championship points in the MX1 class, at a chilly Victorian Round of the Motul MX Nationals at Shepparton yesterday.

Despite being bitterly cold down south, the racing on track was nothing short of heated in both motos, and Peters was well within the mix battling with some of the best riders in this year’s championship.

After qualifying for GoPro Superpole yesterday morning where Peters clocked the fifth fastest time, the American import then had a successful opening moto. Peters made his way from eighth through to fourth position in race one, passing numerous heavy hitters along the way, eventually concluding the moto just shy of the podium in fourth.

In race two, Peters was back in 13th position after only one lap on the gruelling Shepparton circuit, but once again the Suzuki mounted rider charged through the field and up to eighth place by the conclusion of the moto.

With a fourth in race one and eighth in race two, Peters wrapped up the seventh instalment of the Motul MX Nationals at Shepparton in seventh overall. Following his Round 7 performance, Peters has now moved in to sixth in the MX1 Championship standings with three rounds remaining.

“It was a relatively good weekend for myself and the team. We got through to Superpole and I just made a small mistake on my hot lap, and then in race one our speed was much better,” Peters said.

“In the opening moto I came through the pack and even on the last lap I was so close to the two guys in front of me, so even though we didn’t quite make the podium, we were really happy with the result in that one.

“In race two we made a few bike changes, and I was just over riding the track and the bike itself. Shepparton was a track where you really needed to be on, and I just wasn’t able to find my flow in the last moto.

“All in all though there were a lot more positives than negatives at Round 7, we took some solid steps forward and I’m looking forward to carrying that momentum into Port Macquarie.”

The 2017 Motul MX Nationals will continue with round eight to be contested at Port Macquarie in New South Wales on Sunday, 30 July.
