HIMX are very pleased to announce that they have signed up 2012 MX2 World Champion Jeffrey Herlings for the 2013 Hawk International on Sunday 10th February at Hawkstone Park. This is a major scoop for the HIMX team and he will be one of the sure favourites for the win. Herlings battled it out all season with British fans favourite Tommy Searle for the overall World Championship win and despite Tommy being dominant at the British GP it was Herlings that came out on top and the youngster took his first MX2 World Championship title.
With Searle moving up to the MX1 class it will be Herlings on board the factory Red Bull KTM team he will be hoping to kick start his 2013 season on a high note. The hard charging youngster is a super talent to watch and the British fans will get the chance at Hawkstone Park in February, with him not racing much in the UK it is the prime opportunity to watch the Worlds’ best riders go head to head in the UK.
He will be joined by his GP team-mate Jordi Tixier, Jordi finished fifth in the overall MX2 Championship standings and will once again race for the factory KTM team in 2013 in the hope to raise himself higher in the Championship. His highest placing in 2012 was in Latvia where he finished a stunning third overall, with him regularly being in the overall top five this young and consistent rider will be one to watch in 2013.
Jordi Tixier – “I last rode at Hawkstone in 2010 on my 125 and really enjoyed riding at the sandy track and look forward to coming back there next year. I’m really excited about everything for 2013 so hope it will start well at Hawkstone.”
Race Secretary Gary Ford said “We’re really pleased about the top names that are currently signing up to the International and over the coming weeks we will be announcing more. We are really pleased to get the factory Red Bull KTM team to Hawkstone and we know it will be a really good meeting and great for the British fans.”
