Serco Yamaha’s Beaton takes round overall in debut MX2 appearance
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
29 March 2015: Horsham, Victoria
As the sun shone down on the Horsham circuit, so did the number twelve Serco Yamaha machine of Jed Beaton, as he crossed the line for his first overall win, in the MX2 Class for 2015 this afternoon.
After an impressive third place in moto one, and a race win in moto two, it was no surprise to see Serco Yamaha’s Jed Beaton on the top of the podium in his debut MX2 outing.
Despite Beaton’s glory, a ten second penalty in moto two saw teammate Luke Clout forced to settle for second overall, while Kawasaki mounted Takeshi Katsuya finished the day in third place.
Beaton was over the moon with his first win for 2015, dedicating his ride to injured brother Ross Beaton and his brand new Serco Yamaha Team.

“Today was a good day. I had a bad start in that first one and made a couple of mistakes, but I managed to sort myself out and I’m over the moon to be on the podium,” he said.
“I have been working really hard so I’m not completely shocked by my result, but it’s definitely nice to get this one for the team at round one.
“I can’t thank my team and also my brother Ross enough. Ross is always out on the pit board and pushing me with my riding so I did this for him today.”
