Wilson Closes in on Perfect Season

Australian motocross racer,  Jay Wilson, is now just two races away from racking up the perfect season after dominating the second last round of the All-Japanese Motocross Championship, in Kanto, on the weekend.

The Yamaha Factory Racing rider, who took victory in all three races at round six of the championship, took his total race wins for the year to 14 and remains undefeated in the IA2 (250cc) division for the 2022 season.

The weekend proved to be even more dominant that usual as Wilson nailed the start in all three races and simply motored away from the rest of the field. With the 2022 championship already in his possession after clinching it at the previous round, Wilson was able to race with freedom and proved to be a level clear of his rivals in speed and fitness.

“Of all the rounds so far, this one feels like my most complete for me. My starts were great in all three races, my bike was working well and every little change we made was in the right direction, so it was a very positive day for myself and the team.

“The track also allowed the EPS steering system to do its job and the front end was so stable on a track that was hard pack and choppy. The system continues to get better with every race and test, today was the best it has been in racing conditions and was as confident as I have been all year.

“I also really enjoyed this track. It’s a hard pack and jump filled track and reminded me of the Moree track back at home. We were here earlier in the season and it was quite wet, but conditions were good all day on Sunday and I kept having memories of racing Moree as a kid in a lot of the sections on this track.

“Again, thank to you everyone at Yamaha Motor as well as the Yamaha Factory Racing Team. They never stop trying to be better and I love their dedication to myself and the rest of the riders. We have one round to go, so hopefully I can bring it home and give everyone at Yamaha the perfect season,” Wilson signs off.

The final round of the All- Japanese Motocross Championship will be conducted at the Sugo circuit on November 12 and 13.
