Jeremy Seewer has taken over the lead of the MX2 World Championship after the third round of the season, held at the beautiful Argentinian track near Villa la Angostura. His results of a fifth and a second were good enough to see him on the third step of the podium, and were also good enough to grab the red plate; the first awarded to the newly-revamped Suzuki World MX2 team.

Other MX2 team members, Hunter Lawrence and Bas Vaessen, unfortunately didn’t have their best weekends with Lawrence struggling to stay consistent on this track, ending up 18th overall despite showing good speed all weekend.

Vaessen suffered a nasty crash early in the first moto which ended his weekend with a broken collarbone. Overall, it was a mixed bag, but the credit definitely deserves to go to Seewer for how he and his RM-Z250 have started this campaign.

General Manager Stefan Everts had this to say about his team’s first red plate holder: “For sure it’s the highlight of weekend for Jeremy to be taking over the red plate. It’s been a couple of years since Suzuki last had one, and for Jeremy, it’s his first; so, it’s nice for him and it’s good for the team to see it on the bike at the next round in Mexico. However, it is a long season so we can’t get ahead of ourselves and hopefully we can keep it longer than that one round.
