Having enjoyed a well-earned measure of success in 2013, the Pendrich Kawasaki team will move still further into the limelight in the coming season by virtue of them being the only MX2 team in the UK officially supported by Kawasaki.
Focusing on both continuity and improving an already impressive results sheet, Bryan Mackenzie will continue with the Rosewell, Midlothian based team while team debutant, Jordan Booker, will complete a two man assault on both the British Maxxis Championship and Red Bull Pro Nationals.
Bryan had a solid 2013, achieving his first overall win in the Maxxis Championship and various race wins throughout the year in both British title chases. He and the team hope that a more consistent year in 2014 will see him claim the title he deserves.
Jordan is already familiar with the KX250F race package and recognises the benefit of joining the Pendrich team having access to Pro Circuit engines direct from the United States.
To celebrate both the rider announcement and the tie up as official Kawasaki Motors UK MX2 team, Bry’s bike and both riders will be a the Dirt Bike Show in Stonleigh, Warks over the weekend of 9/10 October
For Jordan, the new team is a significant move: “The KX250F is a great bike, and I am glad to not only be riding it again in 2014, but more importantly to join such a hardworking and friendly team as Pendrich Kawasaki”.
Bry Mac confirmed his Team Green roots saying:” I am definitely Kawasaki through and through, and for my team to progress to official MX2 team status for Kawasaki is a great achievement for all involved. I really hope I can repay Kawasaki with a title or two next season.”
Kawasaki Motors UK, Race Coordinator, Ross Burridge, is confident that the new status will provide a springboard for success:
“We welcome the Pendrich Kawasaki team and riders on-board in their new official MX2 status. After having worked with Bryan for a few years, I cannot falter his determination or commitment to the cause, and can’t wait for next season to start to see what both he and Jordan are capable of. Bryan has finished off this season in style, winning both the MX2 and MX1 Scottish National Championships, so hopefully he can take that form on to 2014.”
