Two weeks after the start of the season in Valkenswaard, the Motocross World Championship 2012 moved to the impressive track of Sevlievo in Bulgaria for round #2 and once more after the good start of the season, the Honda MX2 riders Max Anstie and Aleksandr Tonkov reap heavy points for the World championship.

Max ANSTIE was once more one of the fastest riders of the weekend scoring an impressive 3rd best laptime in the Pre-Qualifying practice behind Herlings and Searle and finishing 6th after a start in mid pack in the Qualifying race on the Saturday. On Sunday in race #1 Max Anstie started in 10th position and passed a couple of riders in front of him and had to push hard to catch the other british Nicholls to grab a deserved 6th place closing up on Kullas in the final stages of the races for 5th position. In race #2 a good jump out of the gate allowed Anstie to take a fourth place in the first corner and after ten laps, belgian Roelants, winner of the first moto, joined him and begun a furious battle for fourth place with many contacts and overtaking and at last Roelants with a dangerous move took the final 4th place and Anstie finished a valiant 5th of the race and 5th overall of the GP. Anstie is now sitting in 5th place in the World championship MX2.

In Bulgaria the russian Aleksandr TONKOV confirmed all the hopes the team placed on him and Tonkov scored a great 8th overall of the GP with two very good races and showing a fighting spirit that will bring him at the highest level this season. Tonkov is now in the Top 10 of the World championship and Honda has now two CRF250R at the top of the MX2-GP class !

“I’m happy, I just have to work a bit more on my starts and then I can be with them in front all races, all is really good, my CRF250, the Team and the great work Martin is doing is paying off .” commented Max Anstie.
