RHL Activities are promoting round 5 of the Maxxis British Championship in Leuchars, Scotland on July 3. We recently caught up with British MX1 Champion and a rider who lives within jogging distance of the circuit which will be completely revamped for the visit of one of Europe’s premier motocross championships.

RHL: Shaun, awesome to see you, how was the trip to Canada Heights?

Shaun Simpson: “It was a bit of a disaster getting back from Mexico where I raced the world championship, I flew back to Amsterdam on Wednesday, I had a day on the bike on Friday and traveled over from there on Friday night.”

RHL: Wow, busy few days then for you. We’ve just finished your photo shoot for the Scottish round of the Maxxis British Championship. How cool is it to see the British champs back in Scotland?

Shaun Simpson: “Its great, it’s something that’s been missing from the British championship for the last few years, I remember racing it back in 2009 at Duns in Scotland, which was the last time it was there. I’m excited to have it back in Scotland.”

RHL: Is the track close to home?

Shaun Simpson: “Yes, Leuchars is my home track, only a few miles away from where I stay in Scotland. I’m expecting huge support from the Scottish fans, I know they can’t wait to see myself, Bryan Mackenzie and Alexander Brown compete and hopefully come away with our own respective class victories. For a tiny country we produce exciting and very fast motocross riders.”

RHL: See you in Scotland on July 3.

Shaun Simpson: “Certainly will.”
