ASBK: Kawasaki confirms suspension of Superbike team in 2010


Due to the current economic climate and the ongoing uncertainty of the 2010 series, Kawasaki has decided to suspend all KRT road racing activities in 2010.

Although KRT road racing activity has been suspended for next year, Kawasaki still looks forward to supporting road racing on a more “grass roots” level in 2010.

KRT will continue to compete throughout the remainder of the 2009 season and is confident of achieving podium success in the Supersport class with ZX-6R rider Ben Attard currently sitting in 3rd place in the Championship.

No decision has been made as to KRT’s involvement in Australian road racing beyond the 2010 season.

Kawasaki sincerely thanks Kevin Curtain, Ben Attard, Dave “Radar” Cullen and the KRT mechanics, the sponsors and the many KRT supporters for all their hard work and competitive results to date in 2009.
