New team recruit Jackson Richardson is very pleased to be back on a Honda after spending many early years competing on a mighty CRF.
After already tasting success and winning the Coffs Harbour Stadium Cross in January and entering the 2018 season as reigning 250cc Champion, he is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
"I just love being back on the Honda, they suit my riding style and I find I can race harder on them in all conditions. I can't wait to get the season rolling and want to challenge for top results," stated Richardson.
Richardson also spent some time in the USA during the pre-season, working with some of his regular trainers to further prepare for the upcoming season and develop his CRF250R.
Team principal, Mark Luksich has been steadily building CRF Honda Racing over the last 3 years and feels that Penrite-Pirelli CRF Honda Racing in 2018 will get him closer to his targets.
"It's been a while since I have enjoyed the taste of winning Championships with Honda, however, I feel we are moving in the right direction," said Luksich.
Luksich ran Honda teams in the late 80's and early 90's taking riders Glen Bell and Lee Hogan to multiple titles in Motocross and Supercross.
"I'm humbled that we continue to attract more support from some great sponsors and we want to give them the best value we can." Luksich finished.
The Penrite-Pirelli CRF Honda Racing will contest the MX Nationals and the Australian Supercross Championship in the MX2/SX2 Lites class in 2018.
