DAO Racing Kawasaki have officially unveiled its 2022 BSB colours for Dean Harrison ahead of his second full season with the team. 

The newly renamed DAO Racing team lifted its striking blue, green and white livery during the London Motorcycle Show last week. 

The team’s new name replaces that of Silicone Engineering Racing under which it raced in 2021, while Harrison remains with the team after having signed a two-year deal last month. 

Harrison’s new contract will see him compete on a full-time basis in both BSB and on the road-racing scene. 

That means a return to the Isle of Man TT event which had been postponed over the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic - Harrison’s last appearance at the TT saw him win the Senior event in 2019, while he will also take part in the North West 200 and Ulster grand prix.

Speaking about the team’s new livery, Jonny Bagnall, Team Manager of DAO Racing said: "Following a complete rebrand for the team, we wanted a new look for our ZX-10RR and I’m delighted to reveal our 2022 British Superbike livery. This is the bike we will run at all BSB meetings this year and we will be unveiling our roads machine at a later date.

"We have chosen to go for quite a dramatic change in style and colours. Although we have stuck with blue, green and white, we’ve gone for a darker and brighter blue this year, moving away from our traditional old shade and have retained the green to reflect our involvement with Kawasaki.

"The livery also includes elements such as the Thai and Manx flags and I believe we’ve created a bold and striking machine to fly the DAO Racing flag in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2022."
