Returning riders of Ireland's Martin Barr and UK's Tom Grimshaw, will be headlining the Burnley based British Motocross team contesting the MX1 Class this up and coming race season.
2024 will see the new-look Apico Honda race team sit onboard the new Honda CRF450R 2024 machinery in the MX1 class at the Dirtstore British Motocross Championship and the Motul Fastest 40 British Motocross Championship as well as other selected race events.
Team Boss Dylan Brown spoke about the change of manufacture below:
“I've personally been a Honda enthusiast since purchasing my first race bike over thirty years ago and it is one of the main brands I’ve been involved with in my racing career. It’s been a dream of mine to run our own Honda race team so after the deal put to myself and Anna from Honda UK, it was too good an opportunity to turn down."
"We have an MX1-only deal, aboard Honda’s CRF450R model, a fantastic bike known for its speed, agility and performance. The chance came along to sign Tom Grimshaw, a rider we have sponsored since he started out on 65’s several years ago and who is developing into a fantastic professional rider. "
"Martin has many years of experience and shown last season that he’s still able to compete at the top level of British Motocross. I feel we have the perfect blend to make an assault on the British Championships”.
