Petrov wins the final round of the British series


Petar Petrov won the final round of the British MX2 championship at Fat Cat as he unsuccessfully tried to save the title for Max Anstie, absent after his injury during the Motocross of Nations.

After winning fifteen of the previous twenty motos in the series Anstie held a 45 point lead prior to the final round but unfortunately the Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki rider was unable to compete after his crash at Ernée one week ago. Max could not defend his title lead after suffering fractures of the T3 vertebra and scapula. Petar Petrov of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team and Maxime Desprey of Monster Energy Kawasaki Bud Racing were additional entries, while DRT’s Steve Dixon entered American Darian Sanayei to aid Max’s chances. Having scored several great results on the sandy tracks of the Dutch series this season, Petrov ended his first season with Monster Energy Kawasaki to take the overall victory with three strong rides to 1-3-7 moto results despite losing much time at the start of the second and third races when other riders crashed in front of him. Anstie eventually lost the British title by nine points but he had his best season so far on the Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki to take third in the world with nine moto victories. The next race this season for a Monster Energy Kawasaki rider will be the Lille Supercross, where Dylan Ferrandis will make his comeback from a knee injury.
