After six years in Europe Jed Beaton will return to Australia to compete in the 2023 Australian Motocross and Supercross Championship with Factory Honda Racing Australia

Jed Beaton will return to Australia to steer a CRF450R in the 2023 Australian Motocross and Supercross Championship with Factory Honda Racing Australia.

Beaton brings a lot of experience to the ‘red’ squad, after spending the previous six years competing in the FIM Motocross World Championship and claiming eight Grand Prix podiums.

Beaton is already proven aboard the bigger 450F – he showed top-five speed in the very competitive MXGP class on more than one occasion. Such potential will make him a very fierce contender in the domestic MX1 series and, unsurprisingly, his sights are set firmly on gold. Jumping onto a Honda is like returning home for Beaton, who actually claimed his first Grand Prix podium whilst racing for the HRC outfit.

“I am really happy to be back on a Honda,” Beaton enthused. “I have had a lot of good memories in ‘red’ and I hope that we can continue that by taking the ProMX title next year. I know that this team will give me the tools that I need to do the job.”

The 2023 Australian Motocross Championship is set to start in Gippsland, Wonthaggi on March 5th. The schedule, which will consist of eight rounds, will run through August. Kyle Webster and Beaton will form Honda’s Factory 450 outfit, Webster continues to work through his multi-year contract with the squad. The MX2 250 squad and WMX team will be announced in the coming weeks.

Yarrive Konsky (Honda Racing Australia Team Owner) concluded saying, “I’m ecstatic to welcome Jed Beaton to the team for the new season! Armed with the extremely impressive CRF450R, I’m certain that he’ll give us plenty to cheer about when round one fires into life.”
