Standout year has national number three linked to Serco Yamaha seat.
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.
