- Jett Lawrence crowned “King of Paris” with dominant 450 overall win
- In 450 race debut, Hunter Lawrence takes a solid second overall
- Jo Shimoda named “Prince of Paris” with 250 overall win in factory Honda debut
In what amounted to something of a progress report as the riders and teams prepare for the 2024 AMA Supercross opener in seven weeks, Team Honda HRC racers Jett Lawrence, Hunter Lawrence and Jo Shimoda acquitted themselves well at the Paris Supercross—the premier race of the off-season, now in its 40th year.
Carrying the momentum from an incredibly successful 2023 season, Jett Lawrence was unbeaten in the first night’s three motos, and he added another victory on day 2, never finishing worse than second. It was plenty good enough to earn him the “King of Paris” crown in his 450 debut on a true supercross track, and it augurs well for the coming season. Making his race debut on the CRF450RWE, Hunter Lawrence enjoyed some close racing with his brother, and he notched a win of his own and only finished off the podium on one occasion, taking an impressive second overall.
Meanwhile, CRF250R-mounted Jo Shimoda—making his racing return to Honda after three years away—took top honors in the 250 class, collecting four wins over the course of the weekend and never finishing off the podium.
