Dixon Racing Team Celebrates 10 Years of Partnership with Kawasaki in the 2024 FIM MXGP World Championship Series

Updated: Mar 9

Entering its landmark 10th year of collaboration with Kawasaki in the exhilarating world of motocross, Dixon Racing Team (DRT) proudly gears up for the 2024 FIM MXGP World Championship Series. Under the seasoned leadership of Team Owner and Manager, Steve Dixon, whose remarkable 35-year tenure in the MXGP paddock reflects a profound dedication to the sport, DRT stands poised for another thrilling season of motocross.

In an exciting development for the 2024 season, Bike It, the premier distributor of motorcycle parts and accessories in the UK, reinforces its enduring commitment to DRT by assuming title sponsorship of the Bike It Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team. This strategic partnership underscores the mutual pursuit of excellence in the motocross industry. DRT thanks long-time supporters Big Van World, as they transition from their title sponsorship role. With Bike It becoming title sponsor, DRT continue working with partners MTX Discs and Sprockets, who are distributed by Bike It.

As DRT embarks on another thrilling season, steadfast partnerships with SWP Concrete and Stebbings Car Superstore form the bedrock of its operational success. These alliances exemplify the collaborative spirit and shared vision necessary to sustain a motocross team at the pinnacle of the sport.

The 2024 season heralds the return of Jack Chambers to the MX2 class, his determination undimmed by setbacks endured in the previous year. Benefiting from rigorous training regimens both in America, under the guidance of esteemed coach and former DRT rider Zach Osborne, and in Europe alongside his new teammates, Chambers epitomises the tenacity and spirit emblematic of DRT's ethos.

Complementing Chambers' seasoned prowess are the promising talents of British riders Bobby Bruce and Billy Askew, who join the DRT roster in the MX2 and EMX250 classes, respectively. Leveraging DRT's legacy of nurturing British talent and its storied success on the Grand Prix circuit, Bruce and Askew embody the next generation of motocross excellence.

DRT sends our best wishes to Courtney Duncan, whose partnership with DRT and Kawasaki yielded an impressive four WMX World Championship titles in five years. Duncan's remarkable achievements serve as a testament to the enduring legacy of excellence cultivated by DRT and its collaborators.

The global motocross phenomenon, the Motocross of Nations, will return under Steve Dixon’s watch to the award winning Matterley Basin Circuit this October. Because of this, Steve and DRT have been able to re-invest back into British Motocross by supporting Bobby Bruce and Billy Askew.

“I feel 2024 is going to be a really great year for the team. I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years with Kawasaki! And 35 years in the paddock - you would think the passion has dwindled, but I continue to be driven and determined year after year. It’s great to have Bike It back on board as title sponsor this year, they are really pushing hard in the motocross industry this year so we are happy to be there with them for it. 

We have a really strong team this year, they are all getting along really well and helping each other grow as people and riders. They will definitely be ones to watch. Obviously I’m also looking forward to bringing back the Motocross of Nations on the 4-6th October at our home track of Matterley Basin. It’s a long way away but it will come around sooner than you think! I want to thank all our sponsors who through an ever increasingly difficult climate help us keep the wheels spinning and heading for those chequered flags.”
