Lawrence Bros’ 2023 Plans Settled

1 year ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Team Honda HRC

Back in late September, when 19-year-old Jett Lawrence delivered in spades at the MX of Nations by winning the event’s Open-class Overall – in what was his maiden professional race aboard a 450 – a lot of people simply presumed that meant the young Aussie would be stepping up to race the 450 next year in both MX and SX championships.

Well, not so. Not until the Outdoor series, which kicks off midway through the year, anyway. And to set the record straight, Team Honda HRC has released a statement to confirm the team’s 2023 rider roster and exactly which series each will compete in. Here’s an excerpt from it…

Hunter Lawrence

“For the third year in a row, Team Honda HRC’s 250 effort is headed up by Australian brothers, Hunter and Jett Lawrence, both campaigning the CRF250R. This past season saw Jett not only successfully defend his AMA Pro Motocross 250 title, but also earn the AMA Supercross 250SX East Region crown, while Hunter was second in the West Region and third outdoors.

“For 2023, the brothers are swapping supercross regions, with Jett riding West and Hunter racing East. Meanwhile, Chance Hymas advances from the amateur ranks to join Hunter in selected East Region appearances.

“In addition to his 250 efforts, Jett intends to switch to the CRF450RWE full-time for AMA Pro Motocross. At that point, Hymas will fill his 250 spot full-time alongside Hunter Lawrence.”

As a matter of interest, the 2023 season will mark the 50th anniversary in motocross for American Honda. The full rider line-up for 2023 comprises Chase Sexton, Colt Nichols, and Hunter and Jett Lawrence, along with Chance Hymas.
