Supersport Duo Out To Enjoy Another Season

March 3, 2010

Kawasaki's official Supersport team has now completed extensive winter tests and intense backroom preparations and racing for points gets underway for real on Sunday 28th February.

Katsuaki Fujiwara and Joan Lascorz put in strong testing performances at Phillip Island recently on their Ninja ZX-6R machines, but the effort for 2010 began immediately after the conclusion of last season's final race at Portimao, in October.

The development work on the machine and its overall set-up has been unstinting and consistent, factors which have filled both riders with great confidence to meet the challenges of the new season, beginning with a 21-lap race on Sunday 28th February. Initial practice at PI has gone well, as the whole team hopes the rest of the season will do so as well.

Joan Lascorz: "We had a great test last week, finding little improvements all the time. We continue working on our set-up all the time, but we understand how changes make the bike react. We are starting this season ready in every way, and our bikes have more power. So we are full of confidence after many of our performances last year and good winter tests."

Katsuaki Fujiwara: "Our preparations have been very good this winter, in testing and in overall machine development. We are much better than we were at this stage last year. We can take the same settings from track to track and just make small adjustments. I am completely ready and happy to be back racing again."
