With the WorldSSP300 championship getting closer, Ton and Meikon Kawakami are continuing their preparations heading into another season in the lower series. 

The WorldSSP300 championship is similar to the Moto3 class in terms of its non-stop action filled races, and the new season is sure to be another exciting one. 

Jeffrey Buis of MTN Kawasaki returns as defending champion, while former Grand Prix racers Ana Carrasco and Tom Booth-Amos will also be involved.

Meikon [Kawakami] is the younger of the two Brazilian brothers and took one pole position in 2020, which was one of the performances of the year as he took top spot by over a second at the Circuito de Jerez - Angel Nieto.


Both riders will once again be competing on Yamaha YZF-R3 machines as they hope to become championship challengers in 2021. 

Speaking ahead of the new season, both men have given their thoughts going into the year and training schedules involved to be race ready. 

Meikon [Kawakami] said: "Only physical and motorcycle training, about five to six sessions of physical training and twice motorcycle training.

"I still didn't have a defined goal for the season, first I want to prepare, and I want to start the tests well riding the racing bike."

It has been a similar routine for the older of the two brothers Ton Kawakami, who said: "Training is going well, in the morning it's biking, the afternoon is gym and also some motorcycle training to keep evolving physically.

"The objectives remain firm from the beginning, getting prepared as much as possible so that in the first race I can already fight, every day preparing to be able to get as far forward as possible."
