Two time British motocross champion, Brad Anderson, has been lured back to race in the UK. After so nearly signing for the Kawasaki Motors UK official MX team in 2012 – and then eventually racing in Australia – the deal sees the north east based rider set to compete on the KX450F in both the Maxxis British Championship plus the Red Bull Pro series under the guidance of Steve James and the Maxxis Kawasaki by L.P.E team.
With plans to partner Anderson up with riders of equal measure, the team believe that 2013 could well be their year, as team principle, James explains:
“It was sort of like Ando was on secondment to the Australian series really and he knew we wanted him as a future part of the team. The new outfit and increased support from long term partner Maxxis, along with valuable input from Apico and Answer clothing, sealed the deal in double quick time. Now we can build on this solid foundation and I hope to be announcing other top line signings for our dedicated MX1 team in the very near future”.
For Kawasaki Motors UK, racing coordinator, Ross Burridge, was upbeat about the news saying:
“Our support over the past four years for the L.P.E team has been unstinting and we’ve seen them grow in experience and stature. Now, with the Maxxis deal and an influx of paddock interest, it looks like it’s their turn to step into the spotlight and make a solid challenge for championship success”.
