Billy Askew and Bobby Bruce sign with DRT Kawasaki for 2024
DRT Kawasaki have snapped up two talented British riders in the form of Billy Askew and Bobby Bruce for the 2024 season. Askew had inked a deal with the Revo GasGas team but with that team have financial problems and having to close their doors, Steve Dixon has signed him up to contest the MX2 British Championship as well as the EMX250 series.
Bobby Bruce had planned to do as many MX2 GP’s this year as possible with ASA United GasGas but a wrist injury cut his season short but he’ll swap the ASA United GasGas team for DRT Kawasaki which is a big opportunity for the young Brit to race the MX2 World Championship including oversea GP’s.
The pair will join Jack Chambers under the awning who Dixon signed up as a fill in rider this year and will be back in 2024.
Courtney Duncan is on the move and expected to sign with F&H Kawasaki for the 2024 season.
