Wish them all the best, especially Simon Andrews, he really is an up and coming talent and deserves a great year in 2010 then onto a full factory machine. MSS will certainly make this championship way more interesting this year, especillay with the loss of GSE.

It might be kinda obvious, but I'll say it anyway.

It seems that Kawasaki are getting back to their roots with their approach to racing this year. They left 500cc racing in the early 1980s when they saw that the return on prototype racing was negligible. Their WSS and road racing performances in 2009 showed that if they focus their limited (compared to the other Jap factories) resources on production based racing, it'll be more beneficial to their brand image.

At this early stage, it seems that they are mounting a serious challenge on all those fronts. I'll stick my neck out and predict a WSS crown and top 3 WSB and BSB positions for 2010.

Patrick - I agree with your comments except no way will Kawasaki finish WSB in the top 3 in 2010 - Let's see: Ducati, Yamaha, Aprilia, Honda, BMW,Suzuki - so you think they are going to outscore 4 of those factories!

Pitty they need them bsb would be better without rider aids, but that aside wayne gardner tested the bike and said its big issue is its traction control, vermulan tested it and said we need to improve the electronics. Must be better than they have got but i'm thinking they have got it because birdy has upgraded, hope it fly's andrews is the real deal carnt wait.

Looks like Kawasaki are taking the cash they saved by getting out of Motogp and spreading it around their efforts in production based series instead.....good move, if they get better results in multiple championships its got to give them a better return than running around at the back of the GP field.

Birdie might have got an upgrade but what they had appeared to work real good ...Brands Hatch BSB 09 Broc Parkes after all isn't that where MSS race :?
