Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing Ready to Launch Into 2019

Posted:

Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing will campaign the potent Honda CRF250R in the 2019 Motocross and Supercross championships.
Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing have revealed their lineup for the 2019 season that will contest all major MX Nationals and Australian Supercross Championship events.

Kyle Webster returns for his fourth season with the powerhouse CRF Honda Racing team, which is owned and operated by longtime Honda motocross race team principal Mark Luksich.

Joining Webster in the Penrite Oils and Pirelli tyres sponsored Honda team for 2019 is NSW young gun Rhys Budd, who continues his rise through the Honda ranks and will attack the MXD category this year.

Meanwhile Sydney youngster Nick Luksich will enjoy support rider status with the team, as he maintains his push up the ranks of the hotly contested MX2 category.

‰ÛÏThe 2019 season is shaping up to be an exciting one for Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing,‰Û
Kyle Webster is back for his fourth year withe the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing outfit.
New team rider Rhys Budd is one of Australia‰Ûªs most decorated junior motocross competitors, with a swag of junior championship wins and podiums to his name since he began racing in 2009.

In 2017 Budd raced as part the Honda backed Building Champions Program staged by former multiple Australian champion Lee Hogan ‰ÛÒ who is another protege of Luksich‰Ûªs teams in the 1990s ‰ÛÒ while last year he rode with the Honda Red Riders. Needless to say the western Sydney-based 17-year-old is excited to have ‰Û÷graduated‰Ûª to the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing outfit.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs early days yet, but from the very outset the connection with the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team has been really positive and I‰Ûªm looking forward to the season starting with the MX Nationals at Appin in March.

‰ÛÏ2019 will be my final year racing in the MXD class, so I want it to be a special one. My goal is always to win and be in the front pack and consistently make the podium, so that‰Ûªs what I‰Ûªm aiming for this year.‰Û
Rhys Budd will take on MXD duties with the graduate of the Honda backed Building Champions Program, run by former multiple Australian champion Lee Hogan, moving from the Honda Red Riders support team to the Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing team.
