Jeffrey Herlings has agreed on a wildcard entry to race at the Lyng round of the 2021 Revo ACU British Motocross Championship fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels.
The four-time world champion will line up this Sunday, May 23, at Cadders Hill, Lyng, for the second stop of the 2021 Revo MXGB championship.
The Bullet, whose career started in 2002 by taking the Dutch National Federation Championship win on a 65cc and now holds four world championship titles, will line up in the MX1 class at the popular primarily sand-based hillside circuit in Norwich.
“I am excited to go racing in Lyng this weekend for the British Championship after eight months of no gate drop for me and get my feet wet to start the world championships in a couple of weeks’ times,” said Herlings.
“England always provides good tracks, great fans and strong competition. See you all Sunday at Cadders Hill.”
RHL’s Gareth Hockey said. “It’s great for the British championship to welcome Jeffrey Herlings over this weekend for the second stop of the 2021 season. We have previously had Jeffrey at other events RHL has hosted across the years, including his youth career, so it’s great to see him come and show his support to the British fans this weekend. We want to thank Stebbings and SC Sporthomes for their support and making this happen.”
Chairman of the Norwich Vikings organising club, Phil Armes, is delighted to welcome Jeffrey Herlings to the Norfolk venue. “This is the icing on the cake for us and all British motocross fans. Although we are restricted to 4,000 fans under the Covid guidelines to have not only Jeffrey but Ben and Nathan Watson lining up against a full British Championship field promises to be a brilliant return to live-action motocross in the UK.”
As well as Herlings, Nathan and Ben Watson, plus Liam Everts are also in as wildcards.
Update May 19, 12:55 BST: Nathan Watson is not on the Lyng entry list.
