Hudson Kennaugh joins Ionic Balance Linxcel Racing

'It's been a long winter and now it's time to get out there and burn some rubber' - Hudson Kennaugh

South African Hudson Kennaugh will challenge for the Metzeler National Superstock 1000 title this season on a Kawasaki ZX10R after joining forces with the new Ionic Balance Linxcel Racing team.

Kennaugh endured a nightmare season in 2011, leaving the Splitlath Aprilia team to join PR Kawasaki for the final four rounds of the British Superbike Championship as a replacement for injury victim Simon Andrews.

The previous year he finished as the runner-up in the Evo class after riding for MAR Kawasaki and Splitlath Aprilia, but this season the 31 year old will pursue a different challenge in the Superstock 1000 class.

Kennaugh has linked up with new bike racing backers Ionic Balance, manufacturers of health-promoting negative ions wristbands and Linxcel.

The team will have support from Bob Grant Racing/Complog Performance with additional input from Maxton Suspension and Blu Security and Storage.

Kennaugh said: “I'm happy to be involved in bringing new sponsors into BSB, and looking forward to building on the enthusiasm. It's been a long winter and now it's time to get out there and burn some rubber.”

Calum Liptrot, Managing Director of Ionic Balance, added: “Everyone involved in this team has the winning attitude and we look forward to maximum performance and winning results.”

Good luck Hudson and everyone in the new team. With less and less money in motorsport its good to see new teams pulling together and getting involved. Should be an interesting season. Shame about the haters.

Yes - I noticed that too - they obviously mean motors prepared by Bob Grant - blueprinted exactly as per the rules! Good luck to them and as Hudson said - it is good to see new sponsors entering bike racing.
