The annual Hawkstone International was the destination of the PAR Honda squad this weekend.
After success at the first round of the Maxxis British Championship at Little Silver the team were looking forward to stretching their legs amongst Europe’s finest riders.
Unfortunately the team suffered various injuries over the weekend including foot damage to Brad Anderson and a serious back injury to Ray Rowson.
Ray is currently having further tests in hospital but the diagnose at this time is two cracked vertebrae in his back – more information on Ray’s injury will posted as we get it.
This left the youngest member of the team Luke Hawkins to fly the flag in amongst leading contenders for this year’s world motocross championship.
Brad Anderson – MX1
“I was feeling good coming into this weekend but in the first race I knocked my foot and stretched a ligament. We made the decision to not race the second moto just in case, I should be fine for this weekend’s first round of the Red Bull Pro National at Foxhill.
Martin Barr – MX2
Martin will explain why he didn’t race at Hawkstone in this short video interview.

Luke Hawkins – MX2
“Today was all about testing my speed and fitness against some world class opposition. Hawkstone Park is one of the most demanding tracks in the world. I was happy with what I achieved and I now head to Foxhill fit and raring to go at real race speed – I’m really looking forward to it.”
Next weekend will see the return of Scott Elderfield with his season debut at the British Masters on the PAR Honda 450F, Brad, Martin and Luke will race at Foxhill in the Red Bull Pro National series.
The team wish Ray Rowson a quick and healthy recovery and hope to see him back in the awning real soon.
