Hot on the heels of the announcement of a reinvigorated Team Green youth squad, Kawasaki Motors UK have unveiled a total of nine teams which will receive support and backing for the 2013 season.
Running in a variety of hotly contested Championships, the teams are headed by the official MX entry for Kawasaki Motors UK, Maxxis Kawasaki by LPE who run ex British Champion Brad Anderson this year alongside Dorren Coutts and familiar Team Green stalwart, Connor Walkley. Fielding another rider synonymous with Kawasaki, the new team of Pendrich Kawasaki, are looking towards MX2 honours this year with Bryan Mackenzie in the saddle of the formidable KX250F .
The Pro ranks this season will be bolstered by Revo Talon Kawasaki (another new team in the green camp) in addition to Oakleaf Kawasaki and Ifly Lanes Kawasaki. Completing the line up in the adult league will be yet another debutant team fielding an experienced pilot, Apico Ansatech Kawasaki with hard-charging Estonian Gert Krestinov looking to take no prisoners in his search for podium glory.
Traditionally strong in the youth scene, Kawasaki redoubles its effort for the new season with the talented four rider Monster Energy sponsored Team Green squad of Billy King, Todd Kellett, Preston Williams and Dylan Woodcock.
Looking to make their mark in the youth – and especially the rookie classes – is MJW Kawasaki headed up by road race specialist Mark Woodage. Along with Passion Racing’s owner/rider Chad Yarranton competing in the fertile amateur racing scene, the nine team line-up is a mark of Kawasaki’s confidence according to Racing Coordinator, Ross Burridge.
“It’s going to be a busy year…. and hopefully a successful one!” commented Ross. “Having Brad on a Kawasaki in the MX1 class gives us the best chance we’ve had in a long time to finally grab that elusive British Championship. I am fully behind each and every rider and supported Kawasaki team to help them achieve as much success as possible in 2013.”
