It has now been confirmed that the Geico Honda team which ran the 250cc factory effort for many successful years have now closed their doors. It’s a tough blow for the sport in America as the 250cc class will now lose a number of factory rides as a result.

The Lawrence brothers are expected to remain on Honda’s but the rest of the riders that were with the team this year are thought to be looking a ride.

“After 19 years of running American Honda’s satellite 125/250 effort, Factory Connection @fchonda competed in its final race this weekend. Operating most recently as GEICO Honda, Factory Connection has been racing for 23 seasons and has earned 12 championships–including 10 in the last 10 years. The team went out on top at Fox Raceway, as the final moto featured a GEICO Honda podium sweep, and Jett Lawrence @jettson83 netted his career-first overall win, as well as Rookie of the Year honors. Teammate Jeremy Martin @jeremymartin6 also earned his fifth moto win of the season, by 18.3 seconds, posting a 4-1 moto tally for second overall. Rookie Jo Shimoda @joshimoda84 enjoyed a solid ride, notching a career-best overall result of fifth, while Carson Mumford @carsonmumford matched his best pro finish at ninth overall. Unfortunately, Hunter Lawrence @hunterlawrence was unable to finish the day after reinjuring his shoulder, which he previously dislocated earlier in the season. American Honda thanks Factory Connection for their valuable collaboration and extends best wishes to the team principals, crew and riders. #ridered”, Honda Racing U.S, stated on social media.
