Kennaugh gets BSB ride

MAR Kawasaki has signed former British Supersport title contender Hudson Kennaugh to replace reigning Hungarian Superstock champion Dávid Juhász for the 2010 BSB season.

As previously reported (click here) MAR and Juhász parted company 'following a last-minute hitch at the Hungarian end'.

But the team insisted that 'a replacement has been found who will worry a few other teams with his proven race class. Watch this space...'

A brief announcement on the team's website has now confirmed the new rider as Hudson 'Hurricane' Kennaugh with 'more information to follow'.

The South African also recently announced that he will ride in the 2010 Isle of Man TT.

He's young, he's ambitious, he's talented, and he's not happy unless everything is to his liking. I could be wrong and its not the same for everyone but isnt that the same recipe for a lot of champions gone by in the sport? I was at Mallory Park at a test day when HK first jumped on the ZX6R BSS last season and he was incredibly quick from the off and a seemingly nice guy off the bike. I was stood talking to him for about 20 mins about bikes and life in general just passing the time till it was his time to go out again. I'm sure there are people he rubs up the wrong way because he strives for perfection and sometimes oversteps the mark to get there. I wish HK and MAR best of luck

Rich: not sure 'Prima Donnas' ever really get to be true champions. Ref: Max Biaggi. No bike ever built that could match that guy's talent - apparently. I remember Schwantz after riding a near-stock uncompetitive (in anyone else's hands) GSXR in the Transatlantics in 1986 - just shrugged and said 'you pull the wires a bit harder'. He went on to do the same on the inferior Suzuki 500 for many years. Now THAT'S a champion!
