Logistics make a possible appearance at Southwick too difficult.

A chance to race the Southwick round of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship is officially off the cards for Boost Mobile Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster, unable to piece the logistics together in time for this weekend.

With a seven-week break in the Penrite ProMX Championship, there was a possibility of Webster making the trip to the US to ride as part of the Fire Power Honda outfit, which is also led by Australian factory Honda team owner, Yarrive Konsky.

However, with the World Supercross Championship (WSX) season-opener in Birmingham held just last weekend – another series that Konsky’s international program is active in – it was too difficult to put a competitive program together for Western Australian sand specialist Webster in the American outdoors.

“It was never really set in stone that we were going to go,” Webster told MotoOnline. “I think it was going to be a little bit hard to get a bike there, from what Konsky said. With the World Supercross being the weekend before and the whole team being there in England, it just made it really tight and hard to get a bike, unfortunately.”

Instead, Webster’s focus will remain set on round seven of the ProMX championship that takes place on Sunday, 13 August at Queensland Moto Park. The Honda team rider is currently P7 in the MX1 championship standings, with only two rounds remaining this season.
