Factory Honda riders Dean Ferris and Kyle Webster seek redemption as they set their sights on round 2 of the Australian Motocross Championship in MacKay, Queensland this coming weekend and the MX1 riders admit they can’t afford anymore mistakes.

“You cant afford too many mistakes in an 8 round championship and I definitely let round 1 slip through my hands. Literally I watched both race wins slip through my hands as I crashed. I need to be sensible this weekend and maximise each moto,” said Webster.

Ferris agreed,

“Round 1 was challenging for me, coming off an injury. Limited testing and track time made it hard as my preparation wasn’t perfect. These two weeks have been amazing, we have tested, and I feel more comfortable and settled. We have made some massive changes and I appreciate the team’s support,” said Ferris.

Current MX2 points leader Wilson Todd believes he will be better prepared for round 2 and more settled following his first national race in a long time.

“I was tight in round 1, it had been a while since I last raced a national and I put a lot of pressure on myself. I am looking forward to this weekend. These past two weeks have been great, and I am eager to race again,” said Todd.

Cambell Williams start to 2022 has been positive, the teams MX3 rider leads the class by 10 points and is focused on consistency.

“I can’t just think about the wins, I need to hit my marks on each and every lap and I need to race the track. Wilson and I have already proved how strong the new Honda 250 is. I am focused on being consistent,” said the young and enthusiastic Williams.

The team would also like to welcome Glyn Griffiths as their newly appointed Race Team Manager.

Honda Racing expanded their racing commitments in 2022, in addition to their growing racing commitments Honda is committed to customer experience days. Team Director Yarrive Konsky is excited to announce the appointment of Glyn Griffiths and knows that his inclusion will improve the development and efficiencies of Honda Racing and its involvement in customer experience events.

“Glyn has a tremendous amount of experience in Racing, Events, and Honda. He managed an international race program, has been involved with Honda and racing for more than 20 years and is understanding of what’s required to perform under pressure” said Konsky.

Racing requires a great deal of planning, testing and preparation and Yarrive explains the importance of Glyn’s appointment.

Honda’s expanded commitment to racing and customer experience days is fantastic, and we want to execute them at the highest level, that’s why Glyn was the perfect choice”, continued Konsky.

The Factory Honda Team and Ride Red riders competed in Round 1 of the Motocross Championship with modest success, Glyn was there on the weekend to witness the program in its entirety and is looking forward to his new position with Honda Racing Australia.
