Last week’s story that Bob Buchanan was ready to fold his GL12 Racing KTM team appears to have been a little premature and the two-stroke guru is in fact working on a typically out-of-the-box way to finance his 2018 effort.
Bob’s planning to again field James Dunn and Mike Kras with James taking on the four-strokes in the EMX250 class and Mike concentrating on regaining his EMX300 crown.
The pair will also contest the British Two-stroke Championship – Mike is, of course, the 2017 champion – and expect James to mix it up at selected rounds of the Dutch Masters series where 250cc strokers can compete against the four-strokes on a equal footing.
But before the pair hit the great outdoors Bob’s also looking at a two-stroke assault on the 2018 Arenacross Tour.
To raise the necessary funds Bob’s put together a number of support packages to give two-stroke fans the opportunity to get involved, starting with a £10 deal which will get your name on the supporters page and a signed photo of the team and going up to £750 to sponsor the team for an AX or British Two-stroke Championship round and £1500 to sponsor the team for an EMX round.
“At the end of the day this is another pitch for some support,” said Bob. “There are hundreds I know but we are a little different, we are successful – and we are changing the face of European motocross. “I don’t however expect you just to give me your money and say crack on – I want you to be part of it to get a return on your money.”
