Jake Nicholl has swapped teams and rides with British champ Graeme Irwin. Irwin has gone from Buildbase Honda to Roger Magee’s KTM team to contest GPs. And Nicholls has gone the other way, leaving the KTM GP ride for an all-British campaign on Dave Thorpe’s Buildbase Hondas.
Nicholls has not yet taken delivery of the 2018 machines but is now fully fit and will start serious testing soon.
Kiwi Josiah Natzke has also left KTM to join Buildbase Honda on the MX2 bike. He’ll contest the British series and the opening rounds of the EMX250 championship. A decision will the be made as to whether he’ll do the whole series or focus solely on British rounds.
