“I felt like I had regained some really good form at the beginning of the year. What happened was unfortunate but part of what we do, my focus now must be on 2013.
“I feel confident again in my strength and stability and my goal is to try and make the Australian Supercross Championships later this year. I would really like to get some racing in ahead of next season,” Townley concluded.
Tony Hinton from Honda Motorcycles is thrilled that Ben Townley will remain with the Carlton Dry Honda Thor Racing Team in 2013.
“To have Ben Townley back on our factory team for 2013 is very exciting for Honda,” Hinton said.
“We are busy preparing a formidable line-up in the team for 2013 and are confident we will be in strong contention for the MX1 title.”
Townley will be on hand to support Carlton Dry Honda Thor Racing riders Ford Dale and Brad Anderson at the final round of the 2012 Monster Energy MX Nationals at Coolum this weekend.
