GasGas Racing Team’s Noah Ferguson enters the upcoming Fox Australian Supercross Championship (AUSX) ‘much more confident’, with 2023 being his second term in the SX2 field.

Last year marked Ferguson’s first-ever competitive AUSX outing and the MC 250F rider impressed with a third-place podium in Adelaide at the second round.

Ferguson finished fifth in the 2022 SX2 championship and was a force to be reckoned with this year in the national MX2 ranks, achieving multiple top-three results and showing plenty of promise throughout the campaign. He enters Adelaide this Saturday off the back of that momentum and is determined to be in contention when the gates drop.

“Round one of supercross this weekend in Adelaide has arrived fast!” said Ferguson. “I’m stoked to be getting out on-track again and, this being my second year of supercross, I’m feeling much more confident entering the season.

“The team and I have done some great work leading in and I feel prepared to go out there and put my best foot forward. Three rounds are going to make for intense racing, and starts are going to be key, but all-in-all I can’t wait to get out there and have some fun.

“The goal is to put ourselves on the box at each round and be in contention to win – I feel I can accomplish these goals and can’t wait for the gates to drop!”

Ferguson will be the lone GasGas Racing Team representative this Saturday at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre as the luckless Regan Duffy has been ruled out of the entire 2023 Australian Supercross Championship with a broken wrist.
