Kay Karssemakers signs with BT Racing
After the Hitachi KTM team announced they’ve closed their doors for the 2023 season it had left Kay Karssemakers without a ride right before the start of the season.
However, the young Dutch talent has announced he’s inked a deal with the BT Husqvarna Racing team – it will see him drop down to the EMX250 series after his rookie MX2 World Championship but he has time on his side and will look to be a front runner in the EMX250 class.
Karssemakers will join Maxime Grau and Wesly Dieudonne under the BT Husqvarna awning for the 2023 season.
“Happy to announce that I will be racing for BT Husqvarna Racing Team in the EMX250 Championship this season! I’m grateful that I was still able to get a place within this great team so shortly before the start of the season. I will ride the full EMX250 Championship and the Dutch Masters of Motocross 250cc. Despite the fact that I will not be competing in the MX2 World Championship like last year, I´m really looking forward to being behind the starting gate again in 2023. Can’t wait to get ready for the season! A huge THANKS to all the people who helped me over the past few weeks and did everything they could to get it sorted”, Karssemakers revealed on social media.
“We are proud to add Kay Karssemakers to our 2023 line-up! After a year in the MX2 championship, Kay will race the EMX250 season this year”, the team stated on social media.
