Dyson Motorsport has secured official support from Kawasaki Motors Australia to be its primary team in the 2018 MX Nationals and Australian Supercross Championship.

Following the closure of Carroll Motorsports, Kawasaki will continue its involvement in national competition with the impressive Dyson Motorsport organisation.

“We are extremely excited for the partnership between Dyson Motorsport and Kawasaki Motors Australia and we look forward to working together throughout 2018,” said Sean Dyson, director of Dyson Motorsport.

“This year we ran Dylan Wood in the MX Nationals out of a small rigid truck and then built upon that to compete with a two rider team in the Australian Supercross Championship and now we have stepped it up again with a plan to run three riders with a larger transporter and team base in 2018.”

The Dyson Motorsport team structure will include the esteemed Jay and Jess Foreman, who will jointly manage riders, KX250F and KX450F development and logistics. Riders are yet to be made official for next season.

“Jay and Jess Foreman will bring well-respected work ethic and expertise to our team which will give us more experience next year and I will provide the backing through my company, Complete Parts and Equipment,” added Dyson, who also operates a successful sprintcar team.

The driving force behind Dyson Motorsport is in the form of Complete Parts and Equipment, a company that supplies parts, equipment and services to the mining and civil industries across Australia, including selling new, used and reconditioned parts for earth moving equipment plus rebuilding componentry and machines.

“Dyson Motorsport have shown their fighting spirit in their core sprintcar racing activities over the years,” Kawasaki Motors Australia national sales and marketing manager Robert Walker said. “We are confident that our support will take their motocross and supercross campaign to the next level, including the addition of our KX450F and KX250F models to their arsenal which will certainly give them a competitive edge.”
