RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING HEAD TO HAWKSTONE PARK FOR WESS ROUND SIX

With just three rounds remaining on the 2018 calendar, WESS riders now move away from the hard enduro events that made up the majority of the races to date and take on two cross-country competitions. The first is Hawkstone Park, a circuit synonymous with world-class racing having hosted international motocross for over 60 years.

2017 saw the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country run as a round of the EnduroGP World Championship. Nathan Watson won the top class with teammate Josep Garcia finishing third in the Enduro2 category.

With British riders well-placed among the top-10 of the World Enduro Super Series, the addition of the UK’s Hawkstone Park Cross-Country is a fitting entry to the 2018 calendar.

“Becoming a part of the 2018 World Enduro Super Series means a lot to our race. To have the world’s best Enduro riders come and race at Hawkstone Park side-by-side with amateur and weekend riders will really elevate the status of the event,” tells Edmondson.

“We’re hoping to see 500 riders come out in force and compete during the two-day event, with 250 lining up in Sunday’s feature race the ‘Original Fast Eddy’. Hopefully it will result in a full-house of spectators coming to watch the racing. It’ll be a festival of Enduro that the UK needs right now.”
