2018 Be Wiser Hawkstone International

11th February

HIMX are now in a position to release the date of the 11th February for the 2018 Be Wiser Hawkstone International. The organisers have released the date early again to avoid clashing with the other major Internationals and also before the usual early start of the GP season. HIMX are also delighted to announce they will be supported again by Be Wiser Insurance as title sponsor –

In 2017 HIMX had to run the early date and this worked perfectly, the weather was extremely kind to them and the crowd was exceptional. It is hoped several GP stars will attend the event with names being announced over the coming months. Entries will open soon for the MX1 and MX2 classes and after the success in 2017 the support class will once again be the MXY2 series.

The Hawkstone International will give the fans an opportunity to some of the World’s best riders in the UK in 2018. This is a prime opportunity to see new teams, new riders and some of the best racers in the World battle against each other at one of the most famous MX circuits.

Be Wiser – “We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of the Hawkstone International and to be able to continue our support of Motocross in the UK. The event always provides top class action and we are looking forward to some exciting racing in February 2018.”

Gary Ford – Event Secretary – “Once again we are really looking forward to the event in 2018, we are hoping to draw some world class riders to the event and have a good shake down before the GPs kick off.

We are really pleased that Be Wiser Insurance have once again committed the the Hawkstone International as title sponsor and it will be great to work with them again.”
