JWR Honda have been a impressive team in the MXGP paddock throughout the 2021 season, and also now announcing a new rider signing with David Pootjes for 2022.
Signing with the team for 2022, the dutchman will be contesting the MXGP Class after showing promise in the MX2 class this current season.
“I’m really happy to get the opportunity to race for a MXGP team like JWR racing.’ said Pootjes. “The new Honda looks great and after my first test ride, I was so impressed and want to go racing right away. I am really looking forward to start working with the complete JWR Honda Racing team. I know I will be working with very motivated people that love the sport.”
“I cannot wait to get going!! I’m so thankful to get this opportunity and to ride the MXGP series on this bike and that Johan Westermark believes in me.”
“We are happy to have Davy on the team.’ explained Johan Westermark JWR Team owner. “We want a rider that know what it takes and has speed, Davy has shown speed, so he was on the short list of riders that we wanted on the team. He is talented, works hard and gives his best. He showed very good speed in MX2 before if you have been fighting for top positions you have it, and we want to work with speed. His never give up attitude is what we want from a rider, and to ride for JWR is also about having a big heart and we see that in him.”
“We are proud and happy to extend our collaboration with JWR Racing for 2022.’ said Ashkan Aghili, 24MX Marketing Manager. “Our collaboration with JWR Racing has been important at several levels. First and the most important part is keep supporting the sport and the community and second to have JWR Racing as part of our R&D process to keep developing the best possible products.
