Honda Racing Corporation is pleased to announce that HSF Logistics will be joining the factory MXGP team as a major sponsor from the 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship season onwards. The agreement will see HSF Logistics partner with reigning World Champions; Team HRC MXGP from the inaugural race of the 2018 season and in pre-season testing next year. Full details of the partnership will be revealed in due course.

HSF Logistics have run their own motocross team HSF Motorsport since 2012, competing in the MX2 World Championship for three years consecutively. The partnership of HSF Logistics with Team HRC will see the pairing set their sights firmly on the World Championship title.

HSF Logistics will be a major partner in HRC’s future MXGP activities. As a company, HSF Logistics have an in-depth knowledge of motorsport; especially motocross as they have successfully run their own team for the past five years. We are looking forward to a growing partnership long into the future and working with a structured company that is as passionate as we are at HRC about motocross and winning world championships.

Simon Frederiks (HSF)

We at HSF Logistics have the ambition to go for the highest achievement possible within both business and motocross. We are very proud with the partnership between HSF and HRC as from season 2018. With the partnership our ambition becomes reality.

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

I'm confused.... is HRC letting them take over the 450 team? Is HSF just jumping in board the current HRC team as a sponsor?

Seems to me like HSF is shutting down their team, and just throwing some cash at the HRC team to sponsor it. Which sucks, and is not the tone of the PR statement.....

Vlaanderen still has a contract at HSF right? So he would stay on the team, just jumping on a Honda. I remember Pootjes having a contract at KTM until end of 2018 or 2019, so he would go to an other KTM team.
