The sandy circuit of FatCat Moto Parc near Doncaster plays host to the sixth round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship this weekend. With a full rider line-up of Brad Anderson, Elliot Banks-Browne and Nez Parker competing aboard the CRF450R machine, the Buildbase Honda team is on the hunt for solid results at the physically demanding circuit.
The layout of the FatCat Moto Parc track has undergone some major changes over recent weeks, which is sure to present a challenge for all participating riders as they compete for wins, podiums and points in the closing stages of the season. Anderson is hoping to put the disappointing results of the last round behind him as he returns to the circuit that saw him claim an MX Nationals podium earlier this year.
FatCat is the scene of the accident that caused Banks-Browne’s shoulder injury this season, but he won’t let that hold him back as he continues his return to race pace. Following a string of mixed results since his own comeback from injury, Parker will be heading to Doncaster keen to show his strength in the sand and ready to mount a challenge for a top five position.
Meanwhile, Putoline Apico Honda will continue its assault on the MX2 class with Neville Bradshaw and James Harrison competing aboard the CRF250R.

Following a tough weekend at Whitby for the previous round, all three riders will be keen to produce some strong results on Sunday. The FatCat circuit has seen a number of changes and will be a new challenge for all the riders, but this should produce some good race action.
After a disappointing day at Whitby, I’m really keen to get to FatCat this weekend and put things right. This is the last Maxxis event in the north of the country and I want to put on a better show for my fans than I did at Whitby.
I'm looking forward to FatCat. It's a track I like and I feel a lot more ready than before. I think Whitby was just that little too early to return but I've been working really hard over the last few weeks and I'm feeling good to go.
Fatcat is going to be tough this weekend. It will be deep, rough and gnarly and I can't wait!
