A top weekend for the Quattro Plant Wicked Coatings Kawasaki team at Saturday’s International North West 200 road races. Glenn Irwin and James Hillier rode in a first and second performance. Hillier went on to take his maiden NW200 race after leading the Superstock race from start to finish.
Pete Extance, Team Owner, said: “It’s been an amazing day for the Quattro Plant Wicked Coatings Kawasaki team and for Kawasaki UK with their first Superbike win at the North West 200 since 1977. Both riders rode a superb race in very tricky conditions and they did an amazing job to bring the bikes home in first and second. In the Superstock race, James set about his task with an excellent start and, full of confidence after making the right tyre choice, he led from start to finish.
“To open up a 20s lead at the NW200 is unheard of given the quality of field and he took a well deserved victory. I’m so pleased for both riders and they’ve worked well as teammates all year. It’s a terrific boost for James ahead of the TT and also for Glenn going into the next British Superbike round where he’ll be looking to climb back up the leaderboard.”
Good luck to Hillier at the Isle of Man TT races! And we’ll be watching Irwin in the next round of Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Donington Park next weekend.
“Just want to massive thank you to you and your talented team at Wicked Coating. From beginning to end, all aspects from the consultation, service and updates, through the process to the standard of finish of the completed work. I could not be happier.”
I myself am looking forward to ‘show season’ more than ever and reaction that my daily driver will get. You made a rare car (1 of 125 left taxed and MOT according to DVLA data) even more unique of which I’m truly grateful for.” ‘Alfa’ Chris
The first race for the 2019 British Superbikes Championships is the 19th April, where the Bournemouth Kawasaki Racing team will be taking to the track on some pretty awesome looking bikes, coated by Wicked Coatings!

We caught up with Managing Director Pete Extance to find out his expectations for the season ahead:
WICKED: A month away from the start of the 2019 season, how are you feeling about your chances?
PETE: We are looking forward to the 2019 season, full of hope with three fantastic riders – Glenn Irwin and Ben Currie in BSB, and James Hillier on the roads for the IOM TT. We will be aiming to retain the championship at BSB and secure wins at the TT and NW 200.
WICKED: What has been your winter preparations?
PETE: All the riders have been training hard all winter to be in peak fitness and the technicians have been working hard on the new 2019 spec engines and chassis.
WICKED: Silverstone National is the first race, are you ready?
PETE: Not yet, but hopefully after five days of Spanish testing we should be ready!
Good luck Bournemouth Kawasaki Racing team!

Cycling 330 kms for Stand up to Cancer could only be done in style…Wicked Coatings used water transfers to add skulls and roses, as well as a carbon fibre effect to this customer’s bike.
Finished with a half full gloss and half satin lacquer, the customer was very happy: “Bike is almost complete and the frame is just mind glowingly great!”
