WSS: Lorenzini to stick with Kawasaki

The Lorenzini by Leoni team will expand to run two Kawasakis in the 2011 World Supersport Championship.
Team Lorenzini will continue to collaborate with Kawasaki into the 2011 World Supersport Championship, it has been confirmed.

The Italian concern switched from Yamaha to Kawasaki machinery prior to the start of the season, the team luring former WSS champion Fabien Foret to helm its 2010 campaign.

It has been a tough year for both rider and team however, with a combination of technical issues and crashes limiting Foret to a mere 12th position in the standings with a best finish of fifth.

Despite this, Foret has shown flashes of speed on the ZX-6R, with the team keen to keep the experienced Frenchman in their midst for 2011.

The team is also planning to add a second, younger rider to its Supersport line-up, as well as move in Superstock 1000 with Kawasaki.
