Nick Sutherland Joins Penrite CRF Honda Racing for Adelaide SX
Round three of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship roared into Adelaide Motorsport Park in South Australia on Saturday night (October 28) and saw the Penrite CRF Honda Racing team‰Ûªs SX1 rider Joel Wightman joined by Nick Sutherland in the SX2 division, as a replacement for injured team rider Kyle Webster.

Sutherland, 26, agreed terms to join the Penrite CRF Honda Racing team after landing back home on the Gold Coast following an international race appearance in Indonesia the previous weekend.

With Webster sidelined by injuries suffered at round two of the series in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria, Sutherland will race the final four rounds of the SX2 championship aboard Webster‰Ûªs potent Honda CRF250R race bike fettled by Mick Lillis.

In the SX1 category at Adelaide, Joel Wightman endured a frustrating night, finishing 12th in the Final.
