Britain’s Max Anstie has secured a ride with the Honda Genuine Honda Racing team for the inaugural World Supercross series, lining up in the 250 class.
Anstie, a 10-year-plus powerhouse of motocross, is currently on a three-race stint in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series and recently posted an impressive sixth-place finish at the Southwick National aboard the team’s CRF450R.
As he continues to build his racing resume, Anstie is sure to be a formidable 250cc competitor in the SX2 class. Born in Newbury, England, the FIM World Supercross Championship’s first Grand Prix is in Anstie’s backyard giving him additional motivation as he competes for a podium in front of thousands of fans watching in stadium and millions watching worldwide.
“I’m very excited to be racing for Yarrive, Martin and the Honda Genuine Honda Racing team competing for an FIM-sanctioned world championship. It’s the chance of a lifetime, and I’m thrilled to be a part of a race team with a rich history in the sport,” said Anstie.
“Growing up in England, I dreamt of competing in front of my friends, family and thousands of die-hard supercross fans, and now I have that opportunity in Cardiff, so I’ll be ready to take advantage and am looking forward to competing.”
