Penrite Honda hopeful of a strong finish to the 2015 season

Team to close MX Nationals season with a positive result at Coolum.

Penrite Honda Racing press release:

The Penrite Honda Racing team will be hoping to close out the 2015 MX Nationals season with a positive result at Coolum Pines Motocross Track this Sunday.

World Champion Ben Townley and reigning New Zealand MX1 Champion Cody Cooper are both looking for strong results as they prepare for the upcoming Motocross of Nations.

Townley finished third at last weekend’s penultimate round in Toowoomba, but said he was disappointed with his result.

“I was disappointed with last weekends results,” Townley explained. “I rode tight and that tired me out.

“I have taken some time out this week to rest the body and I am looking forward to this weekend. I like Coolum and have won races there before.”

Townely’s teammate Cody Cooper is unsettled with the season’s results and hopes to finally make amends this weekend

“It has been a terrible season for me and I am disappointed for the team as the bikes are amazing and Ben has proven that.

“I really need to bring my A-game this weekend. I want to end the season on a positive note”

The team is also supporting the MX Nationals initiative to dedicate the Grand Finale of this years’ season, to raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Both Penrite Honda riders will race with new graphics kits on Sunday thanks to TAKT and specially made THOR MX gear. The team will donate the riders THOR MX gear to a special auction that will be held at the track on Sunday.

Team principal Yarrive Konsky said he was thrilled to support the initiative again this year.

“Last year the helmet that we auctioned raised over $4000,” Konsky said. “This year we have custom gear that is exclusive to this event. I hope people reach deep into their pockets for a good cause.”

The final round of the 2015 MX Nationals will be held at Coolum Pines Motorcross Track on Sunday 30 August.
