BCP Yoshimura Honda Junior Development Team rider Cambell Williams put in an impressive performance over the weekend at Round 2 of the prestigious East Coast MX series at Dargle NSW. With both the younger and older A grade Junior 250cc classes combined Williams lined up against some of the fastest Aussie Junior 15 year olds in the country with an opportunity to showcase his talent.
Moto 1 of the day saw a spirited come from behind ride that took Williams from last place up to 7th with a full grid of 40 riders after an incident off the start.
Moto 2 was looking like a potential win when the Factory Honda rider made a small mistake late in the race while trying to make a pass for the lead. Williams would end up finishing third in the moto.
The final race of the day saw a holeshot and runaway win for Williams. Securing the overall win for the day in his younger age bracket while finishing an impressive second place overall against the older class.
“It is so good to be back racing again,” said Williams.
“I love when we get to race the older class because I know I have to be at my best and these guys are flying. The bike was great and I’m happy with my riding! I’m really looking forward to lining up on the gate again next weekend.”
Team Manager Lee Hogan is happy with the progress of his young star.
“It’s not very often that a young pup can step up in their first year on a 250 and take it to the older boys. I think the last time we seen it was a young Regan Duffy in his first year on a 250 and we are certainly seeing those same signs from Cambell this year since getting on the Honda. He’s so driven and has a great program in place so I can’t wait to see what his last year and a half of juniors looks like,” said Hogan.
