ASHBROOK HAWKSTONE INTERNATIONAL RIDES AGAIN- 26TH FEBRUARY 2023 Post Thumbnail

ASHBROOK Hawkstone International brings an international audience to the Shropshire hills once again.

Salop Motor Club are pleased to announce that the ASHBROOK Hawkstone International will take place on Sunday 26th February 2023. The organisers waited for the final GP calendar to be released and are looking forward to another successful event. SMC are also delighted to announce they have retained ASHBROOK as a title sponsor.

The team are really looking forward to the event in 2023, once again it is set to draw in a huge crowd and some great riders with a few changes to the schedule.

In 2023 we will mix 20 of the best MX1 riders with 20 of the best MX2 riders, each Championship will be scored individually, and points and prizes awarded per class. The Super Final will also be mixed with the MX2 riders having a 3 – 4 second advantage like in previous years with the results decided as they cross the line. The support classes will be an adult mixed class and an EMX125 class.

It is hoped several GP stars will attend the event with names being announced over the coming months. Entries will open soon for the MX1 and MX2 (invitation only) classes and for 2023 we have the Adult Support race and the EMX125 class again please contact Gary Ford on ford542@btinternet.com

Gary Ford – Event Secretary – “We are really looking forward to the event in 2023, we are hoping to draw some world-class riders to Hawkstone and have a good pre-season race meeting before the GPs kick-off.

James Ashbrook- ASHBROOK Managing Director- “Having been the title sponsor of this prestigious motocross event since 2019, it gives us great pleasure to work with Hawkstone, to put on an awesome event for the spectators and riders.  Throughout the year, we supply plant hire equipment, enabling quick track repairs and ongoing development.  Consequently, seeing the track in action and enjoyed by so many, is a source of great pride.”

Update 24.11.22: Herlings to race Hawkstone

Salop Motor Club are delighted to announce that they have signed factory Red Bull KTM rider and 2021 MX GP World Champion Jeffrey Herlings for the ASHBROOK – Hawkstone International on 26th February 2023.

Herlings is a big fan of the famous Hawkstone Park circuit and is looking forward to competing at the event in 2023. Jeffrey had a really tough 2022 season sustaining a nasty injury before the season started which saw him sitting on the sidelines for all of 2022. He was very much missed and we are super excited that one of his first races back in 2023 will be at Hawkstone Park.

Jeffrey Herlings – “I am super excited to come and race again at Hawkstone Park, it is one of my favourite tracks in the world and I am excited to fight for the win again.  I can’t wait to meet and see all the British fans after being away from racing for a year and that I am excited to see where we are at after such a long time off.”

Gary Ford – SMC – “After the disappointment of the nasty injury Jeffrey had before the 2022 season had got underway it’s great news that we have got him signed up to race on the 26th February as part of his comeback. I am sure he will be back to his very best in no time and we wish him every success in 2023. Jeffrey enjoys coming to our circuit and it will be great preparation for the forthcoming GP season, which starts two weeks after our race in Argentina. He is always good with the fans and there will be plenty of opportunities for autographs and photos.”
