Harri Kullas heading to Hangtown as a privateer

Harri Kullas has experience racing all around the globe and last year got his first experience racing the AMA Nationals with the help of Cab Screens Yamaha.

He contested three rounds of the series and impressed that side of the world running in the top ten – he even led some laps.

Unfortunately, the Cab Screens Yamaha team have closed their doors and bizarrely Kullas has been left without a ride in Europe. It has seen him race in Brazil but after an injury contesting the Arenacross UK series he missed the first round of that series.

Kullas will be heading to Hangtown this weekend for the second round of the AMA Nationals as a privateer after buying a bike this week. Unfortunately, he can’t race round three as he has obligations to race in Brazil but he is hoping to race High Point and then possibly more rounds of the AMA Nationals depending on results and how things go.

We got in touch with Kullas who has outlined his plans for the foreseeable future – he’s going to be doing plenty of travelling.

“The plan is to ride as many AMA outdoors as possible. We will see how it all goes after this weekend, actually. We will go weekend by weekend because it will obviously cost a lot of money to be a privateer and travel around America. First of all, I bought a bike this week and we are getting some help over there. We have an Estonian guy who is living in San Francisco so he can help me at Hangtown, then we will try to find transport and parts for High Point. After Hangtown I have a race in Brazil which I have to do then hopefully come back for High Point.

“After High Point I’ve another Supercross in Brazil but then in July I should be free from Brazil. I can stay more in America then but we’ll see how things go. The first race in Hangtown, then Brazil, High Point. Let’s see where we are and how it goes. It’s a lot of money and a lot of travelling but we will see”.
