More bad news on the sponsorship front, unfortunately, and it involves another Honda team! Buildbase Honda has become one of the most recognisable efforts in British motocross, with the Dave Thorpe-led squad doing so much for the reputation of the company that provides building and timber supplies. Buildbase will not return next year though – the company made the announcement via the following statement.
“After nine years, Buildbase has ended its sponsorship of the Honda motocross team, going out on a high following a championship-winning season. We’re proud to have been part of building the best team in motocross and wish them all the best for 2021.”
Buildbase experienced a lot of success as the title sponsor of the Honda UK team, most recently winning the MX1 title in the Michelin MX Nationals with Tommy Searle. There is no word on what Dave Thorpe’s next move is.
