Jett started this year’s European MX Championship (EMX250) as one of the youngest riders on the grid and while the older riders in the class started as comparatively seasoned racers.

Lawrence should perhaps also have been at a disadvantage from his small stature, but the cheerful youngster wasn‘t restricted by that and has recently impressed the MX paddock with a double win at the EMX250 Championship round in Assen, Netherlands.

Up for a challenge

At the ADAC MX Masters Championship series, because of his age, he could have started in the ADAC MX Junior Cup 85cc, but he was aiming for a higher, tougher challenge and made the direct step-up to the highly-competitive ADAC MX Youngster Cup.

The title win, which Lawrence achieved at the final round of the championship in Holzgerlingen on September 23rd, showed everyone that the decision to move up was the right one, and took the title graciously, with a manner beyond his young years.

“For me it was a completely natural development that I start Motocross,” he says about his start into the sport. “Hunter demonstrated it to me and I followed in his footsteps.”

Jett’s father Darren Lawrence, thinks it is an advantage for his younger son. “In our family, nobody had a history in Motocross, we all started completely from scratch. We never had the plan or any idea to bring our boys into the sport. The initiative came from Hunter, who had the idea when he was seven-years-old after he saw American Supercross races on TV. At his first race he was in the very last position, as he always stood there waiting when someone crashed in front of him. Jett was able to learn from his brother. When he started with the sport we already had some experience, from which we benefitted.”
