With preparations now well underway for this year’s Hawk International at Hawkstone Park on February 26 and some top international riders putting their names down to compete, an added bonus has come with the news that Motors TV are planning on broadcasting showing highlights and races.
Race Secretary Gary Ford commented: “This is great news not only for our event but also for the sport in the UK and it gives us an opportunity to portray our loyal sponsors to a much larger audience as they will get coverage on the programme.
“Additionally it will help in attracting potential sponsor for future events held by HIMX. We have riders and teams signing up day by day and both the MX1 and MX2 classes have some fantastic riders among the entries which is sure to prove another fantastic day’s racing.
“Names released so far are Rockstar Suzuki MX1 with Clement Desalle, Tanel Leok and Japanese rider Yohei Kojima, Monster Energy Suzuki MX2 Harri Kullas and Petar Petrov, STR KTM Matiss Karro and Nathan Parker, Buildbase Honda Nico Aubin, Ryan Houghton and Jordan Booker, Apico Suzuki Luke Hawkins, Lewis Gregory and Damon Strydom, Dyer and Butler Suzuki Alan Keet and Josh Waterman with many more to follow.
“HIMX would like to thank Hawk Plant Hire for agreeing to be title sponsor this year and to Doodson Motorsport Insurance for the excellent cover provided for us. Other event partners who are also providing fantastic support are RJS Builders, Transporterland, Cradley Kawasaki, Route 77, Salop Leisure, Golden Tyre, Muk Junkie, T+MX and DBR.”
