Adam Sterry will stay green for 2018 it has been confirmed today with the former British MX2 champion signing for F&H Kawasaki.
Sterry’s time on Kawasaki was in jeopardy with the brand pulling their factory effort from MX2, which left the Brit hunting for another ride that would keep him racing the World MX2 Championship, fortunately, F&H Kawasaki stepped in with a two-year contract.
Sterry will team up with Ruben Fernandez for next year’s world championship and a third rider will be announced soon, say the team.
Sterry has proven speed and is capable of mixing it with the best in the world so, despite a hard-hit 2017 with an ACL injury, the team is confident they have signed an athlete with all the right qualities. “I’m really happy and looking forward to working with Adam and that we could keep him inside our Kawasaki family,” said F&H Racing Team Co-ordinator, Harrie van Hout in a press release. “Hopefully we will have some successful years with a lot of fun.”
Sterry feels he will benefit from his time with the factory Kawasaki outfit and is keen to get started after his long layoff. “I am very happy and excited to join F&H Kawasaki for the next two years,” says Sterry. “I am thankful for this opportunity after being injured most of the year but we will be back stronger than ever and I can’t wait to start riding and testing with the team.
“I learned a lot about the Kawasaki this year and I’ll be taking that into next year to help us achieve the results we work very hard for.”
