Herlings signs up for 2023 Hawkstone International event

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 once again 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 the 2022 season. 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 and 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.”
