In what is a surprising late-season move, Steven Clarke has parted ways with the Carglass Honda team effective immediately. Clarke will complete the season aboard red machinery, however, thanks to support from Apico Factory Racing in the UK. A reason for the split has not been confirmed, but a handful of issues supposedly caused it.
Apico Factory Racing, Putoline, Talon, MotoShack, Winchester Off-Road and 4Power Engines are all behind this new effort that will debut at the next EMX250 round, the Grand Prix of Belgium, so Steven Clarke has support from a few different areas. That will enable him to compete in the European series and then the remaining rounds of the Maxxis British Championship as well.
Steven Clarke runs fourth in the EMX category with four rounds remaining. Forty-five points is the difference between him and the current series leader, Mathys Boisrame.
