Herlings loves the famous Hawkstone Park circuit and is once again looking forward to competing at the event in 2024. Jeffrey has had a very tough couple of seasons battling injuries and has been fighting hard to get back to full fitness and to the top of his game where we know he belongs!

It will be great to get Jeffrey back at Hawkstone and get his 2024 season off to a strong start. He has always had good results there and is great with the Hawkstone fans.

Jeffrey Herlings – “Hawkstone Park is one of my favourite circuits in the world and I am excited to fight for the win again, and I can’t wait to meet and see all the British fans again. After not winning last year, I’ve got a bittersweet taste of it, and I need to fight for the win again in 2024.”

Gary Ford – SMC – “It’s great to get Jeffrey back for 2024, he is a good friend of the club and enjoys racing at the circuit. I hope the event proves useful in his preparations for the GP season and we wish him well in his MXGP World Championship campaign.”
