Hunter Lawrence signs with GEICO Honda
After finishing ninth in his Rookie MX2 season in the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship and making a huge impression at the Motocross of Nations by winning the MX2 class and taking the Ricky Carmichael Award for the best young rider Australia Hunter Lawrence has now signed with GEICO Honda.

With his current team, Suzuki World MX2, looking mist likley to fold, the 10-year-old was left searching for a place to continue his impressive form for the 2018 season. The Queenslander will remain in the MX2 World Championship in 2018 racing for the Gariboldi owned Team Honda 114 Motorsports in MX2 before heading to the USA in 2019 with GEICO Honda.

‰ÛÏTo join GEICO Honda and their list of riders past and present is an honor,‰Û

Hunter Lawrence made an impression on the Wolrd by winning the MX2 class of the 2017 MXoN and taking the Ricky Carmichael Award for the best young rider.
"Hunter and his family expressed the desire to stay in the GPs for one more season with the goal of winning the World Championship, following in the footsteps of other Australians like Chad Reed, who spent time winning races and battling for a title in the GPs before coming over here. We have watched Hunter ride and feel he will be more than ready by the time he comes here in 2019, and while we haven‰Ûªt seen him ride supercross yet, we believe he has the talent and skills to excel there, too, and with this deal, also plenty of time to prepare.‰Û

In the deal, GEICO Honda announced it will also provide technical support to the Gariboldi-owned Team 114 Motorsports Honda team, which is the first-such collaboration between the U.S. GEICO outfit and a Grand Prix team.

Gariboldi is well-known in GP circles, as Tim Gajser rode for him en route to the 2015 MX2 World Championship, and Gariboldi has deep ties within the Honda HRC MXGP (450) team, which Gajser rides for today. We hear the new 114 Motorsports team will reportedly be managed by now-retired Women‰Ûªs World MX Champion Livia Lancelot.
