Ward still uncertain of making 2020 MX Nationals
Series regular hopeful strong New Zealand campaign leads to an opportunity.
Talented Queenslander Caleb Ward is still uncertain if he’ll contest the 2020 MX Nationals, indicating his current focus is making a strong campaign in the New Zealand Motocross Championship with CML KTM.
Ward, who’s raced the last two seasons in the premier class, is evaluating his options for the upcoming motocross series, admitting he could only race selected rounds if he can’t come up with adequate support.
Currently challenging the MX2 category in New Zealand, the former race winner has also suggested he would likely revert to the quarter-litre division in the Australian series.
“At this stage, I’m just racing the New Zealand nationals with CML KTM,” Ward told MotoOnline.com.au. “Coming into this year, I knew I was riding that, but I’ll just see how I go with it. I don’t really have anything in the works for the rest of the year – if I get a good result, it will hopefully get me more support here in whatever I choose to do.
“I haven’t got anything locked in yet, and I’m not sure if I’m going to do all the MX Nationals. It will be good to be in the hunt for the title, so I might do the first couple and see how I go – obviously if I go well, I’ll keep going. If I’m not getting enough support, I don’t think I’ll be able to afford to do them all.”
The opening round of the MX Nationals is scheduled for 4-5 April at Horsham in Victoria.
