Rumour: Van Doninck to contest the British Championship in 2020?
One rider that ages out of the MX2 World Championship for the season ahead is Belgian talent, Brent van Doninck. It’s never easy to secure an MXGP ride moving up from the MX2 World Championship and it looks like van Doninck could be racing the British Championship in 2020.
Rumours suggest that van Doninck will sign with the ASA United Husqvarna who are thought to be on the look out for a 450cc rider. The deal between van Doninck and the ASA United Husqvarna team isn’t thought to be signed just yet but it’s likely to happen.
Rumours also suggest that Mel Pocock who was thought to be staying with the team could be about to be starting up his own team in the British paddock.
The deal will see van Doninck race the British Championship and a decision will need to be made regarding the MX National series. It’s thought the Belgian wants to race as many European rounds possible of the MXGP World Championship as well.
In terms of the British Championship, van Doninck would be a welcome addition to battle with the likes of Tommy Searle, Shaun Simpson, Harri Kullas and Evgeny Bobryshev – the MX1 British series is looking very competitive for the season ahead.
