Change of plans for James Mackrel!
We recently announced that James Mackrel will be making the switch to the MX1 class in 2018 on Honda machinery.
However, the G&G Ross hardcore racing Yamaha team have stepped in and offered Mackrel a ride that he couldn’t turn down. Mackrel will now be staying in the MX2 class after all for the year ahead but on a blue machine.
Mackrel will contest the MX2 Maxxis British Championship as well as the U21 British series which is making a welcome return in 2018.
Mackrel posted the following message on social media:
“Well, from one colour to the next! I’m finally planted on the 250f Yamaha once again.. 2018 is shaping up to be the best yet I’ll be racing the maxxis mx2 and under21 British championship which I will be racing for the G&G Ross hardcore racing Yamaha.. would like to say a massive thanks to Roland Shaw @hardcoreracing for this opportunity and Graham Ross for all the help.
