This weekend see’s the first competitive outing of the season for the Pendrich Kawasaki team as they load up and head north to compete in the Scottish Motocross Federation’s (SMXF) National Championship in the Scottish Highlands at Tain.
Showcasing the team’s new colours for the first time trackside in 2013 and housing the current reigning MX2 and National (MX1/OPEN) class champions with Mark Perfect and Ross Rutherford under the awning, the Pendrich Kawasaki riders are fit and healthy and will be looking to retain their crowns this season with a positive start at round 1.
Supporting Ross and Mark in the MX2 and National classes will be Bryan Mackenzie as he competes over the 2 days aboard his KX250f to furthermore strengthen Pendrich Kawasaki’s assault on both titles and youth rider, Lee Perfect will be looking to improve on his 3rd place in last years Big Wheel 85 championship with a strong showing at the opener in Tain.
Team principle Mark Perfect snr is also looking forward to the season getting underway; “It’s been a long winter away from the track for us after ending last year so positively, we just wanted to be back at the races as soon as possible so to finally be going racing again has us all really excited. The SMXF championship provides a great opening meet for us too as these boys haven’t raced since October so provides a great platform to loosen up, get 6 starts each under our belts from the two days of racing and be in amongst some pretty stiff competition, especially for our MX2 riders, Bryan and Mark, who will have to work extra hard on Sunday in the National class to keep up with Ross and the others on their 450’s in the deep sand conditions.”
