A MOTOCROSS team is heading to the UK's biggest motocross series.

Romsey-based office technology supplier, DEOS Group, sponsors not-for-profit Cab Screens DEOS Group Racing tean which was founded six years ago.

Two riders have entered the British Championship MX1 racing class – dubbed the ‘premier league’ of motocross.

Team leader, Harri Kullas from Estonia, will be aiming to wrap up the Pro Title as he heads into the penultimate round with a 42-point lead.

Due to injury the team’s second rider, Dan Thornhill, will be missing the event.

It is taking place at Cusses Gorse Motocross Track near Salisbury, on the weekend of August 24.

The team will be up against some tough competition, with the annual race seeing male and female racing talent from across the country.

Lee Webber, Cab Screens Racing team manager, said: “Despite some early injuries, we’ve made an impressive start to the series so far, and have high hopes to continue building on our success at Cusses Gorse. “The MX National series is a fantastic all-action spectator event, and a great weekend out for the whole family.

"I’d urge anyone who’s interested in motocross to come down and show their support for a local team."

Matt Smith from DEOS Group, commented: “We’re really looking forward to seeing Harri and the team in action so close to home.

"I’ve personally always loved motocross and as a company we’re proud to be supporting up and coming talent in an unfunded and highly competitive sport.”

DEOS Group, in Romsey Industrial Estate, Greatbridge Road currently employs 28 staff at its head office.
