SymCirrus Motorsport Team Up With Kawasaki For All-New Pirelli National Sportbike Series!

With testing underway today at Oulton Park ahead of the second round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship this weekend, the SymCirrus Motorsport Kawasaki squad is proud to confirm its five-rider team for 2024. The Market Harborough-based team have been working hard over the winter in partnership with Team Green Technical Partners, MSS Performance and Corby Kawasaki to turn the Ninja 650 into a competitive machine for the all-new British Sportbike series. 

With the bike already enjoying success over the years on the roads at the Isle of Man TT, the three-rider lineup of Doherty, Atkins, and Kirsch will be looking to replicate that when the new Championship begins in earnest this weekend. 

Further strengthening the team's connection with Kawasaki, Ed Best will compete in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship aboard the Ninja ZX-10RR, while Luca Hopkins will be racing under the SymCirrus Motorsport Kawasaki colours in the exciting new Tracker Kawasaki British Superteen series. 

Steve Holborough, SymCirrus Motorsport Kawasaki Team Owner:
“I am excited to be part of the new sportbike class and working with the series and Kawasaki we are looking forward to seeing what the Ninja 650 is capable of. It's a learning process and we will judge the success on the results at the end of the season. Thank you to all of those involved to date, Corby Kawasaki, Steve Hill, EBC and R&G.” 

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department:
“We are really excited by the new Championships in the BSB series as it allows us to showcase more of the Kawasaki range, and it's fantastic to be partnering with SymCirrus Motorsport for the 2024 season. They have a long and successful pedigree in the paddock and they have been working hard to develop the Ninja 650 for the new Sportbike series, so we are really excited to see what they can do when the Championship gets underway this weekend.”


Inaugural Tracker Kawasaki British Superteen Series Set For Season Opener!

Launched in July 2023, the Tracker Kawasaki British Superteen series finally begins in earnest this weekend at the undulating Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire. Running alongside the second round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, the opening weekend of action will see the riders enjoy two races on Monday in front of what is sure to be a bumper bank holiday weekend crowd. 

Designed to be an even playing ground, with each Ninja ZX-4RR being prepared to the same standard by MSS Performance, the series will highlight the skill of the riders over the eight rounds. Taking in some of the UK's most iconic circuits, including Oulton Park, Donington Park, Knockhill, Snetterton and Brands Hatch, the Championship aims to reward the stars of tomorrow and help them take the next step in their career. 

The overall Champion at the end of the season will receive a brand-new Ninja ZX-6R from Kawasaki, allowing them to progress into bigger capacity championships for 2025. However, thanks to some fantastic series sponsors, riders will be able to enjoy additional prizes throughout the year. Reactive Parts will be giving away a set of Ninja ZX-4RR bodywork to the rider who grabs the holeshot in each race, while Team Green partner Silkolene will be providing an essential product bundle to their “rider of the round”. MSS Performance will also be on hand at every event to provide technical support and spare parts to riders. 

To celebrate the opening race weekend, Ollie Ollerton from Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins will be a special guest of the series, where he will be helping the riders with their mental focus and handing out the podium trophies for both races. 

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department:
“After a very busy six months of working with MSVR and MSS Performance to get this class up and running, I am extremely excited to see the first race get underway this weekend. We have a hugely talented pool of riders all keen to show they are the fastest rider and that along with the stunning Ninja ZX-4RR's that have been identically prepared should make for some entertaining viewing!”
