Elliott Banks-Browne set to be joined by Jordan Moxey and Luke Norris as they seek out success in 2017…
British championship title contender Elliott Banks-Browne will be joined at the Geartec Husqvarna Racing team by two young hopefuls in 2017 as Luke Norris and Jordan Moxey have signed up to race for the freshly formed squad.
The team that is managed by Elliott – already a two-time British Motocross Champion – will compete in the Maxxis British Motocross Championship, Michelin MX Nationals and selected rounds of the FIM MXGP and EMX 250 series on the race-proven FC 450 and FC 250 Machines.
After a turbulent few seasons due to injury Elliott sets to take a completely new approach to his racing in 2017 being the only rider to manage and race the same team as he sets his sights on title number three.
Luke turned heads in 2016 with his show of speed and his standout ride of fourth overall at the last round of the Maxxis British Championship back in September.
Jordan Moxey is a name many have not heard before but the 20 year old from Norfolk has an abundance of speed and talent but has lacked the correct machinery and guidance so with all that now taken care of 2017 is set to be his year to shine.
“I am very excited for next season we have a great team surrounded by great people,” says Team Principal Paul Mason. “We all have the same goals – to be the best and to win races and championship but have fun doing it.
“I am very happy with Elliott’s decision in both riders, I witnessed Luke’s great ride at Foxhill this year and was very impressed, He works hard and you can tell he really wants to take his career to that next step and I’m happy Geartec Husqvarna Racing can help him do that.
“When Elliott came to me and said he wanted to run Jordan to be honest I hadn’t heard his name before but if Elliott feels that he has what it takes I support his decision 100%, I believe in giving people a chance and we all need that break in life and hopefully that’s what we are giving Jordan. We will give him the tools to succeed and the rest is down to him and I am very excited to see what he can achieve.”
