Hunter and Jett Lawrence Join Monster Energy Kawasaki In Europe
Aussie teenagers Hunter and Jett Lawrence will fly in soon from their native Australia to race next season in Europe with a new youth structure set up by the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team.

Having won virtually everything this season in Australia, Hunter (16 years old) and Jett (12 years old) discovered Europe when they successfully contested the FIM Junior World Championship.

Jett was crowned 65cc World Champion in 2014, while Hunter got a second in the 85 class in 2013 and a third in the 125 class this summer. Both grabbed new titles in Australia this year; 125 and 250 Junior titles for Hunter, and 85 Junior title for Jett, so the family has now accumulated eleven Australian national titles!

Hunter, Jett and their family are now ready to walk in the footsteps of Chad Reed, who came in Europe in 2001 to race the World Championship with Jan De Groot and the Kawasaki Racing Team.

Much younger than the Australian legend, Hunter will enter the European MX2 series while Jett will race selected 85cc races all over Europe. Both brothers are delighted at the prospect of this new experience.

‰ÛÏEurope has always been my main goal since I first raced the Junior World Championship in Italy. I love the tracks, the different cultures and racing lots of fast riders ...Europe produces so many amazing champions and I have always wanted to have a chance to grow in the environment that the European motocross scene provides.

"In Australia we don't have the population to get a lot of fast riders on the line; there is usually one or two really fast riders but not half the field like in Europe so that provides more challenges which I love.

"I believe Europe is a great opportunity to see how far my career can go,‰Û
