New South Welshman Aaron Tanti has revealed his racing future is locked in for the 2019 season where he’s to remain in the MX2/SX2 category, following the closure of the Complete Parts Kawasaki Racing team.

Tanti experienced a breakout year in 2018, capturing a number of race victories on his way to third in the Pirelli MX Nationals MX2 standings, making him a favourable contender for the crown next season.

While unable to disclose the team he’s contracted to, the number 18 has been heavily linked to a position at the champion-winning Serco Yamaha outfit alongside regular Nathan Crawford, expected to prompt the departure of MX2 champion Wilson Todd.

“I’ve got a big thing for next year and I’m happy with it,” Tanti declared to MotoOnline.com.au. “I don’t think I can say too much yet, but I’m 100 percent racing – I’ve got something sorted in MX2.

“This was my first year riding full-time and it was massive learning curve. I’m going to have to learn how to control a championship and on my bad days, I’m going to have to make them as good as they can be. I learned a lot this year and it’s been a big eye-opener – I’m going to be ready for 2019.”

Despite earning the crown with Serco Yamaha, speculation circulating at AUS-X Open Sydney indicates Todd will return to DPH Motorsport aboard Husqvarna machinery for the first time in his career after a potential opportunity in Europe failed to come through.

With the Australian Supercross Championship now at a close and this weekend’s S-X Open Auckland the final racing commitment for many teams and riders, the domestic silly-season is set to kick into overdrive throughout the coming weeks.
