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!
Wicked Coatings will also be one of the headline sponsors for the team for their road races – Isle of Man TT and North West 200.
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!
