MAX ANSTIE TO MAKE FIRE POWER HONDA DEBUT AT RED BUD
Confirming their commitment to chasing success at the very highest level, Fire Power Honda has signed Max Anstie in a deal that is effective immediately. Anstie is set to make his debut in on the Honda CRF450 at the fifth round of 2022 Pro Motocross at Red Bud on July 2.
Anstie started working with Fire Power Honda just one month ago and has been building pace aboard the CRF450, ahead of his first 450 National appearance of the year. Anstie has a limited deal with Fire Power, as he is only guaranteed three races (Red Bud, Southwick and Millville). He hopes to race the 2022 Motocross des Nations for Team Great Britain (if chosen) on September 25 at Red Bud. Fire Power Honda says they will make announcements about additional signings to the team for the 2023 in the coming weeks.
Anstie left the Twisted Tea Suzuki team to race for the Rocky Mountain KTM team, but he was injured most of the last two years and the Rocky Mountain team folded in the interim. The best news for the Anstie’s (Max and Milly) is the birthday of their son Finn.
Max Anstie said: “Being competitive is always my priority and I know that Fire Power Honda can give me what I need to chase my goals in the USA. The first month with the team has been great and I cannot wait to get behind the gate at Red Bud. It will be a great opportunity to show just how much work we have done!”
Fire Power team manager Martin Davalos said: “Max was on our radar from the very start – his success in Europe speaks for itself. Winning his class at the Motocross of Nations speaks to his talent and potential. Providing a platform for him to succeed in the United States is our priority now. We are entering the next three rounds of Pro Motocross with realistic goals, yet we know that he has already got the speed to be comfortably inside of the top ten.”
