Josh Coppins will take in the event on a visit to the UK and make no mistake the Kiwi is not coming just to make up the numbers.

Coppins, always known for his work ethic, is sure to be at the sharp end of the racing and is likely to mix it with the front runners over the technical, hard pack circuit at Milton Park, near Northampton.

ACU Events Operations Manager, Stuart Drummond confirmed the entry, ' Yes Josh Coppins has been in contact and will be coming over for the event and obviously we were pleased to accommodate him. Josh always gives 100% and we are sure he is likely to be a podium contender.

Multi-Grand Prix winner, Josh Coppins will be making the long flight over from New Zealand during his current MX1 championship lead in less than 1 week to race the Maxxis British Championship at Milton Park, 27th May.

Josh Lands with not much time to spare, flying in on 23rd May, but with all things speeding ahead with the Fro Systems/IDS Yamaha team Josh will be all set to make his debut race on the privateer backed bike.

Team manager Mark McCann says "I am very excited about Josh coming back. We are good friends and I really miss him being at the GPs. It’s probably going to be my last time to see him race and luckily I will be even more involved than usual.

"Obviously having a very good chance of winning is going to make it even more special. We have put a lot of time and effort as a team, so we are giving it our best shot."
