News Kawasaki’s Katsuya close in MX2

  1. The Sony Action Cam Kawasaki Racing Team’s Takeshi Katsuya is still in the hunt for the MX2 title at the MX Nationals after placing second overall and taking a win in the first moto at Toowoomba recently.
    Katsuya lies third overall, nine points adrift of Luke Clout and 30 behind Jay Wilson.
    Takeshi transformed a tough start into a magnificent race win in the first MX2 moto as he tore his way through the leading riders to finish in front by 2.4 seconds. Steady riding in the second moto saw Takeshi cross the line in 3rd place at the Toowoomba circuit. A countback would favour Wilson as the round winner, pushing Takeshi into 2nd place overall.

    “I feel pretty good. Got another moto win which was really good. Toowoomba is my style of track so I enjoyed it today. I struggled a little in the second moto but overall it’s pretty good!” Takeshi commented.

    The final round of the 2015 MX Nationals will be held on 30th August at the Coolum Pines MX Race Track in QLD.
