Motologic Officially Set To Take Over Honda Australia’s MX and SX Program

Posted:

Honda Australia and Motologic have announced that from 2016, the Honda road and off-road racing teams are set to join forces.

Currently housing Honda Australia‰Ûªs superbike racing team, Motologic will expand its operation in Melbourne‰Ûªs Northern suburbs to include the Honda motocross/supercross team.

Managing the project is Paul Free, himself an ex-superbike Racer.

Honda first employed Paul in 2002 to re-establish their in house factory superbike team. In 2004 and 2005, Paul lead the team to two supersport and superbike championships.

In 2007, Motologic became the new Honda superbike race team headquarters. Outside of the race team duties Motologic is a fully functioning retail workshop which carries out both general and specialized work on all makes and models of motorcycle, both on road and off road.

In 2008 Motologic won another Australian superbike championship title. With many podium finishes in between, Team Honda Racing finished 1-2-3 in the 2014 Australasian Superbike Championship, and also won the AFX-Superbike Championship. Rounding out their most successful season to date, the team also won the Phillip Island Championship in 2014.

The 2015 Australian superbike racing season has just ended and Team Honda Racing made it a double victory; taking out the title in the Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike Championship and the AFX-Superbike Championship for the 2nd year running.

‰ÛÏI am really looking forward to the new challenges of running both teams." Free enthused. "I carry a lot of experience in the road sector of racing, so I am very comfortable with where our team is placed there.

"I don‰Ûªt have a lot of experience in the motocross and supercross arena and understand it is a steep learning curve but I am looking forward to bringing it all together. My goal is to create an off-road team of riders and staff that enjoy working together around the Honda brand as much as my road team currently does.

"Preparations are well underway and we look forward to the 2016 racing season.‰Û
