Empire Kawasaki is set to continue its 2023 ProMX Championship charge at Wodonga, Victoria, with MX2 contenders Haruki Yokoyama and Cody Cooper to take the gate for round three this Sunday alongside MX3 talent Cambell Willams.

Japanese ace Yokoyama has battled a pre-season shoulder injury in the opening races this year, but still managed to bank important points to kickstart his 2023 account at rounds one and two. 

With a month between ProMX rounds to build and further recover, the fast-starting Yokoyama is looking to take a strong step towards a podium return at the Victorian venue. 

Experienced New Zealander Cooper will continue with the team as a fill-in for Jai Constantinou, and has shown that he still has the capability to mix it up against the best MX2 contenders in Australia. 

Scoring a season-best result of P8 in the opening moto at Wonthaggi, a push towards the top five beckons for the KX250 rider and he will be eager to deliver two strong motos this Sunday when the gates drop.

Also competing at Wodonga, proven MX3 race winner Cambel Williams will continue to gain national experience in the development category and is hungry to return to the top step riding the KX250. 

“We are excited to return to Wodonga this weekend for the third round of the ProMX Championship,” said Empire Kawasaki team owner Tyson Cherry. “With a month between rounds, we have been hard at work to arrive in Wodonga in the best possible way and are firmly focused on delivering a strong showing with Haruki, Cody and Cambell on Sunday.” 

The third round of the 2023 Australian ProMX Championship takes place at Wodonga in Victoria, this Sunday, April 16, with bikes on track from 7:45am local time.
