American Motocross legend Chuck Sun will compete in the Veteran World Cup races at the British Motocross Grand Prix at Donington Park England on the 25/26th August.
Former Honda and Husqvarna factory rider, Sun won the 1980 AMA 500cc National Championship for Honda and was part of the victorious 1981 Motocross des Nations team, when they beat the established stars in the deep sand of Lommel Belgium.
Neil Prince, Team Manager of the CAS Honda Grand Prix Team has agreed to supply one of their works Honda’s for the event, where past motocross legends compete on modern day machinery.
British artist Rob Kinsey was able to bring this deal together and is sure the British fans will welcome seeing Chuck battle out with former World Champion’s like Dave Thorpe, who won the first round at Namur Belgium.
The last time Sun raced in England was back in the 1970’s at the Hant’s Grand International at Matcham’s Park.
This is the first time a Motocross Grand Prix has been held at Donington Park, where a motocross track has been built on the infield.
