FS-3 Racing Kawasaki 2021 Preview

Following on from our BSB ticket giveaway in the Club Kawasaki March Competition and the updated 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship dates, we thought we would sit with the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team to get their thoughts ahead of the start of the season and have released the preview in three parts...

Part 1

Since making their debut in the BSB paddock in 2016, the team has gone from strength to strength. Taking their first podium in 2018, the team made their maiden Showdown appearance in 2019, securing two wins in the process. Read the full story...

Part 2

In this second part of our FS-3 Racing Kawasaki season preview, we sit down with the two FS-3 Kawasaki Crew Chiefs, Ian Prestwood and Matt Llewelyn, who have both been working hard over the winter to get the all-new 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR Superbikes ready for the opening test in April. Read the full story...

Part 3

It's time for the final part of our 2021 BSB preview with the FS-3 Racing team, and today we chat with the team's two riders, Lee Jackson and Rory Skinner. After his best-ever year in the Superbike class, Lee is eyeing a place in the Showdown, and regular podium finishes this season, while young-gun Rory is stepping up to the Superbike class for the first time. Read the full story...

New 2021 KRT clothing items now available   

With the prospect of the WorldSBK racing season starting soon, Kawasaki has just unveiled three fast moving items from its upcoming 2021 KRT clothing range.

Seen for the first time at the official launch of the Kawasaki Racing Team for the 2021 season, riders Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes gave the new clothing items their public debut. Styled in Italy, the new KRT T-Shirt and Sweatshirt display the traditional Kawasaki racing green and black colourway with the addition of red for 2021 reflecting the livery of the new 2021 Ninja factory race machine.

Joined as part of the first release of items in the new KRT apparel range by a cap, all items feature the Monster Energy emblem as well as other sponsor logos as high quality 3D badges and not printed items, further adding to the quality look and feel of the garments.

Officially endorsed by the Kawasaki factory in Japan and the Kawasaki Racing Team, the sweatshirt, t-shirt and cap are now available in Kawasaki dealerships and via official on-line stores selling alongside existing KRT apparel items.

Commenting on the new items, KRT Team Manager, Guim Roda said “We regard every season as a fresh start and a new focus. For 2021 we have a new bike, a new colour scheme and now, new clothing. If you want to wear exactly the same style of shirt or cap as Jonathan or Alex, then visit your Kawasaki dealer and join KRT for another exciting racing season.”

Don't forget that as a Club Kawasaki member, you get 10% discount and free delivery when ordering from the official Kawasaki online shop!

View the Kawasaki Full Line brochure online now

There's still time to enter our brochure survey and have your say if you haven't already! We love digital content such as brochures! Here's why... 

They are up to date and accurate 
It's happened to us before, we print thousands of brochures or price lists, the information is updated and our printed collateral is useless. With a digital brochure, we can update it as soon as new information is available with no cost or waste. 

They are available instantly
If the event is cancelled or the dealership is closed, you can still access the information without having to wait. 

They are far more exciting

With high quality images, videos, links and interactive elements - there's so much more to bring to you than we can with printed materials.

They are better for the planet
Printing thousands of brochures each year has a huge environmental impact on the planet which we need to take care of. Not just printing, but also distributing and disposing of them all comes at an environmental cost.

They are more useful

With digital brochures, we can see how long you spent reading it, which page you spent the most time on, if you shared it etc. so it really does help us improve the information we put out.

Do you love them to? Or would you prefer a printed brochure? Please take a few minutes to answer our short survey and have your say.




Provec announces only female team manager in WorldSBK paddock


With Ana Carrasco now ready for her assault on the 2021 WSSP300 title, her Provec team has announced Carla Grau Pi as team manager. As the only female responsible for a racing team in the World Superbike paddock, this represents another first for women in the world of motorcycle racing. 
 
A former Spanish champion Alpine skier and ski instructor, the 22 year old Catalan from Bellaterra is currently completing a Sports Management course at Ramon Llull University in Barcelona. She has been part of the Provec Racing structure for some time with responsibilities for communication issues and as an aid to Ana Carrasco. No stranger to two wheels, Carla has been riding motorcycles since the age of five years old. 
 
In this new role, Carla will work closely with the Provec organisation and call upon their wide range of skills to gain yet more experience in the management side of racing. With Provec's experience of guiding two riders to World Superbike titles, Carla has a huge database of knowledge to call on. 
 
Her female colleagues inside the Provec organisation include KRT superbike team coordinator, Silvia Sanchez and Communications Coordinator, Eva Blanquez plus tyre technician for Jonathan Rea, Mara Soto and in the design/creative team Txell Baró. 
The structure of the Provec Racing WSSP300 pit box will be Nico Sartori as Crew Chief, “Fleky” Rodriguez (Chief Mechanic) and Max Valls (Race Mechanic) 
 
Speaking of the new role, Carla said: 
“I am very happy with this opportunity that Provec Racing and Kawasaki are giving me and to continue being part of this project for the coming year. 
 
The team is back after not being able to complete 2020 due to Ana's injury and we are eager and excited to be able to help her as much as possible to achieve good results in 2021. 
 
I am delighted to continue working and learning from this group of professionals who have so much experience in the WorldSBK Championship and we are all looking forward to the start of the season.” 
 
Guim Roda – Team Manager of the Provec KRT World Superbike project added: 
 
“Carla is eager to learn and she has so much experience to call on inside the pitbox and also amongst all the Provec staff. 
 
Of course, our goal is to regain the WWSP300 title with Ana Carrasco and the whole Provec structure is focused on this. We wish Carla success and hope this appointment will be seen as another positive step for women in the WorldSBK paddock.”
