Crendon FastTrack Honda have announced Tommy Searle and Jake Nicholls will stay with team heading into the 2022 race season.
The squad, backed by one of the UK’s leading Timber Engineering companies Crendon, will again contest the UK’s two highest-level series, the ACU British Championship and MX Nationals.
For Derbyshire-based Searle, it will be his third year with the Honda team which is run by triple world 500 champion Dave Thorpe. In his debut 2020 season, Searle won the only professional championship to run in the UK, the MX Nationals. And in 2021, riding the all new Honda CRF450R, he is currently at the top of the points table in the ACU British championship. The penultimate round at Duns in Scotland is on Sunday.
“I’m really happy to be staying with Dave Thorpe and the Crendon Fastrack Honda team for another year,’ said Searle. “Everyone there really puts in 100% week in, week out and I’m pleased to be a part of it again in 2022.”
Team manager Thorpe said, “As always our goal is to be the dominant team in British championship racing and with Tommy and Jake we have everything in place to continue with that. We have the best machinery, best mechanics and best technical partners.
“With Tommy, he is in a great place now as we head into the last two rounds of the season. After some test sessions he’s confident the bike is fully dialled in and he’s really hitting his best form of the year.
“Jake has been able to ride but a nerve problem is his shoulder means he’s not 100 per cent for British championship races so he will now focus on the 2022 season.”
With Honda shortly revealing an all-new CRF250R for 2022, the team’s plans for the MX2 series will be unveiled shortly.
