The MSS Colchester Kawasaki team is making bold preparations for a 2010 British Superbike title tilt after securing a 'state of the art' electronics package from its sister World Superbike team.
Having made a breakthrough in performance last season, MSS Colchester has acquired Magneti Marelli electronics as used by the factory-backed Paul Bird Motorsport team in the world championship in a bid to maintain its ascension.
Developed over the course of the 2009 season by PBM engineers Phil Borley and Stuart Bland, the 'Marvel' system handles all on-board electronics to tackle both data collection and system management, with a myriad of datalogging and fine tuning options available.
Taken from the bike Broc Parkes rode to three second place finishes during a BSB wild-card outing at Brands Hatch last year, team manager Nick Morgan is hopeful this will help bridge the gap to some of the bigger, better-funded outfits.
“From a technical point of view we're so excited to be using the latest spec World Superbike electronics and as motivation we know we now have the best kit available, so there's no excuses!
“I can't thank Birdy [Paul Bird] and his team enough for giving us such amazing hardware, especially as they have put in huge development time over the course of the year. The kit is straight off Broc Parkes machine which he used so effectively at Brands Hatch, so we know it works well there and that's where we race!”
Simon Andrews and Gary Mason will ride for MSS Colchester Kawasaki in 2010.
