Martin Barr proves to be too STRONG at the British Masters in Whitby


The PAR Honda team of Martin Barr, Brad Anderson, Ray Rowson and Scott Elderfield raced at the third round of the British Masters Series at Whitby, North Yorkshire this past weekend.

It was a dominate performance by Martin Barr that set the weekend apart as he raced both classes and walked away with two powerful overall victories, a testament to his ever improving performances. This was capped off with another thrilling performance by Scott Elderfield in the MX2 class with a solid second overall.

Martin Barr – British Masters – 1st Overall MX1 and MX2
“It was great weekend at Whitby, in race one I got a bad start and worked my through to win it. Race two was different I got a better start and was lying 2nd, I made a silly mistake and stalled the bike and went back to 6th, I managed to get back to 4th and win the overall! In MX2 I qualified 1st and won both races for the overall. I was real happy with the way I was riding today and to win the overall in both classes is something pretty cool.”

Brad Anderson – British Masters – 7th overall MX1 and 5th overall MX2
“It certainly wasn’t my best day at Whitby, I crashed with Scott and my spark plug cap came off which left me too much to do in that race. I need to work on my starts at the moment as I’m leaving myself too much to do, my speed is there but the starts are crucial at this level.”

Scott Elderfield – British Masters – 8th overall MX1 and 2nd Overall MX2
Once again Scott landed himself comfortably on yet another podium in 2010 this time in the MX2 class behind team mate Martin Barr. Scott was strong in both races finishing runner up in both. Scott is currently in 2nd place in the MX1 championship and leads the MX2 championship by 80 points.

Ray Rowson – British Masters
“After a big crash at the Maxxis British championship last weekend which left the PAR Honda 450 rider battered and bruised Ray had a difficult weekend at Whitby. A weeks rest and recuperation will see him back in the saddle at the Red Bull Pro National at Canada Heights.
