Kyle Webster has signed a long-term contract with Honda Racing Australia, which will see the current MX2 points leader move up to the MX1 class from 2022.
Webster is proud to extend his alliance with Factory Honda from 2022 onwards, after many years riding red.
“It’s a dream to race for Factory Honda and I am proud to extend my relationship with them long-term. Honda continues to prove they have race and championship winning bikes, the new CRF450R has already won a World Championship so I am pumped to move into the MX1,” said Webster.
Webster has endured his fair share of ups and downs throughout his career, where an overall National MX2 Championship has eluded him thus far.
“We have come close, but I haven’t won it. This is my first full season of racing with Factory Honda and so far, things are going to plan. We will keep our heads down and maintain our focus for the rest of the season,” Webster added.
With a 34 point lead in the MX2 Championship after three rounds, Webster isn’t ready to let his guard down just yet.
“We have a great program this year, we are winning races and I am working hard to keep that momentum going. There are 10 moto’s to go so I am focusing on each race as it comes, as moto two on the weekend was certainly a reminder of the unpredictability of the sport.” Webster finished.
Honda’s General Manager of Sales Tony Hinton believes loyalty and great results should be rewarded.
“Kyle has raced with Honda for the past five years of his professional career and we can see he shares the same values and principles of the brand. We look forward to working with him as he progresses into the MX1 class in 2022. He is dedicated and trains hard which is obvious from his results so we wanted to assure him that we have a long-term plan for him. Now he can continue to put his head down and focus on winning the MX2 class this season,” said Hinton.
