Gearlink Kawasaki sign Currie and McGlinchey for 2021 British Supersport challenge

After a shortened 2020 British Supersport season, Salisbury-based Gearlink Kawasaki has signed an exciting new rider line up to attack the 2021 Championship. The team has retained the services of Australian sensation Ben Currie, who will be joined by Supersport debutant Eunan McGlinchey. 

Long-time Kawasaki stalwarts Gearlink Kawasaki have become synonymous with British Supersport racing and will once again represent the brand in the series for 2021.  After an incredible end to the 2020 season, which saw him battling for race wins, Ben Currie has re-signed for the team and will be looking to repeat that form when the 2021 Championship gets underway at Oulton Park next May. 

Joining Currie will be Northern Irish rookie Eunan McGlinchey, who returns to the BSB paddock after a year competing in the World Supersport 300 Championship. Although it will be his first season in the Supersport class, the young rider is no stranger to Kawasaki, having won the 2018 British Junior Supersport Championship in 2018 before finishing 4th in the National Superstock 600 class in 2019 on a ZX-6R. 

Team Owner Michael De Bidaph said, "We were really pleased to be able to keep Ben on board for another year. It was a challenging season with the bike in 2020 and it was tough for Ben coming off the Superbike back to the Supersport class, but towards the end he started to gel with the bike and proved at the last round he is still a huge contender for the Championship. 

Alongside him we have managed to sign the young and very talented rider Eunan which we're super excited about and can't wait to start working with him. We have a strong history with supporting young up and coming riders from Northern Ireland so we are pleased to continue that tradition and hopefully we can help springboard Eunan further in his career". 

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department at Kawasaki UK, added, “We have worked with both Ben and Eunan for a number of years within Team Green, so to have them both now forming our official Supersport team in the UK is a dream come true. 

The Gearlink Kawasaki team are synonymous with the Supersport class, and despite coming tantalisingly close on numerous occasions, have never managed to take the title in this class, so we are as desperate as they are to see that become a reality in 2021. This year has been very tricky for everyone, so fingers crossed we can all arrive at round one in May with a full crowd and witness what is always some of the closest racing in the BSB series.”


Kawasaki Motors UK are supporting the #UnlockYourFreedom initiative that has been launched by the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) to highlight the reasons why riding a scooter or motorcycle is a great alternative to stay isolated and safe.

Government advice states: ''Consider all other forms of transport before using public transport,” therefore increasing numbers of people are looking for reliable and quick modes of transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Motorcyclists across the world already know the benefits of two wheels - they're affordable, economical, fun and can help ease congestion. However, the list of advantages has been expanded even further now that being socially distanced is high on people's agendas. Now, choosing two-wheels is a safer alternative to public transport as it allows individuals to remain isolated and a safe distance from others outside of their households.

If you're 17 or over, you can ride a motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc or 11KW having completed your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). Or if you're 16, you're able to ride a scooter up to 50cc without even passing a test, all you have to do is complete CBT which often takes as little as one day.

Find essential information about the licensing process at the #unlockyourfreedom website, and if you want to learn to ride with Kawasaki, don't forget to look at Kawasaki Rider Training Services - KRTS - for your motorcycle training needs.
