LAWRENCE BROTHERS TO MISS 2022 PARIS SUPERCROSS: VISA ISSUES
JETT & HUNTER LAWRENCE TO MISS 2022 PARIS SUPERCROSS
Unfortunately, Jett and Hunter Lawrence, originally slated to race the 2022 Paris Supercross, won’t be lining up this weekend in France. The race will still host a list of heavy hitting AMA Supercross stars like Eli Tomac, Ken Roczen, Cooper Webb, Marvin Musquin and Justin Brayton, but the two Australian fan-favorites will be missed.
Press Release: Hunter and Jett Lawrence will not be able to make their European Supercross debut in Paris on November 12 and 13.
Recently the two Australian pilots, who arrived in the USA at the end of 2018 but never left the country since, discovered an unexpected complication in their status vis-à-vis the American Immigration services, a legal problem which does not allow them to come to Europe nowadays.
The Lawrence brothers were therefore forced to hastily cancel their participation in Paris.
“We are absolutely sorry for this situation, both vis-à-vis the organizer and the French fans and Honda France, to whom we ask to believe in our absolute sincerity. We were happy to run in Paris! We are of course formally committed to doing so next year, exclusively for Paris, knowing that this cannot lessen the disappointment of the spectators, which we share from the bottom of our hearts,” said the Australians.
“It is sad for us, organizers, not to be able to present the announced program, while the Lawrence brothers had confirmed their presence to us more than a year ago”, declared Sophie Casasnovas, President of Larivière Organization. “We offer our most sincere apologies to our loyal public. We take note of those of Hunter and Jett as well as their future commitment to the Paris Supercross, but our priority today is to compensate for this heavy defection in the most sincere way, transparent and brilliant as possible. We are working hard on it and will communicate about it very quickly.”
