Harri Kullas will be competing for Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha in the MXGP World Championship for the rest of 2022. Harri will of course also continue his quest for the Revo ACU British Championship and MX Nationals British Championship, where he lies 2nd and 1st respectively, as a Yamaha UK rider for Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha.
Harri will join Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha and his new teammate, winner of the MXGP of Sardegna, Calvin Vlaanderen, with his first race coming at Loket on July 17th for the MXGP of Czech Republic.
The chance for Harri to compete back at GP level was too good an opportunity to miss, and it will only help him with his speed and fitness as we head into the remaining rounds of the UK series.
Lee Webber – “I always said that if this opportunity arose for Harri, I would never stand in the way, and I would 100% back it and embrace it. This opportunity has come about from the hard work that the team has put in these last few years, along with Yamaha UK, but most importantly the work that Harri himself does week in week out. He thoroughly deserves the chance to show where he is at the moment, on the biggest stage of all…now I have a reason to watch GPs”
Harri Kullas – “Very happy to get this opportunity to get to ride few GPs. We have worked so hard the last four years with Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha, and of course my girlfriend has been all the time my side – like they say hard work pays off.
Obviously, we have had great results in UK, and it is nice that World Championship teams see what we do in a national championship. Big thanks go to my team boss Lee Webber, who has put great team together and he is supporting this opportunity with Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha.
I’ve looked the team past few years, and it looks good, so I give my absolute best, enjoy and hopefully we can have some good races for the rest of this season”
