After a ground breaking debut season in 2015, CRF Honda Racing has pulled the trigger on its 2016 national motocross and supercross campaign by taking aim on last weekend‰Ûªs (April 3) opening round of the Motul MX Nationals staged at Horsham, Victoria, the team headlined by two of the country‰Ûªs top aspiring young motocross racers.
After wrapping up 2015 with a commendable sixth overall in the SX2 category of the Australian Supercross Championship late last year, NSW Hunter Valley young gun Joel Wightman is again lining up with CRF Honda Racing as he continues his climb up the ranks of the country‰Ûªs fastest developing Pro racers.
Joining Wightman in the CRF Honda Racing outfit is West Australian racer Kyle Webster, who is another promising young competitor who will be making his debut season racing Honda machinery.
Along with the revamped rider line-up, CRF Honda Racing brings new sponsor partnerships to the grid for 2016, by virtue of a major alignment with leading national motorcycle accessory importer and distributor, McLeod Accessories. The new deal will see Wightman and Webster take to the track wearing FLY Racing apparel, Dragon goggles, M2R helmets and TCX boots, while their potent CRF250R race machines will be powered by FMF exhaust systems.
For CRF Honda Racing Team Manager Mark Luksich, the commencement of the team‰Ûªs second season of national competition represents a proud moment in the longtime team owner/operator‰Ûªs decorated management career.
‰ÛÏI am so proud of the progress CRF Honda Racing has made in the MX2/SX2 categories of Australian racing,‰Û
