British MX1 champion Shaun Simpson is to have a one-off race in the US Nationals at the legendary Unadilla track near New York on August 8. The 27-year-old KTM ace will jet out directly after the Belgian GP at Lommel to take on the classic valley circuit.

GP rider Simpson said: "I'm really looking forward to it. I'll be getting a bike over there but taking my engine and suspension over with me. I'll be doing my best to spank the Yanks!"

Simpson will be just one of two fast KTM-mounted Scotsmen at Unadilla. Dean Wilson will be making a comeback from injury on the factory KTM at the event too.
