Petar Petrov has a new ride and new colours for 2018 as he joins Assomotor Honda.

The luckless Bulgarian, who missed racing much of 2017 through injury, switches from DRT Kawasaki after two years with Steve Dixon’s outfit to the Italian team Assomotor Honda and will compete in the FIM Motocross World Championship in the MXGP class.

“Happy to announce that I have signed with Assomotor Honda, he wrote on his social media page. “Looking forward to working with this [sic] guys and very excited to move to MXGP class with the big boys.”
