Moriwaki Althea Honda Team


Enthüllung des Moriwaki Althea Honda Teams. 

Das neue Moriwaki Althea Honda Team für die Superbike-WM 2019 war bei keinem der bisherigen saisonvorbereitenden Testfahrten mit von der Partie. Eine Woche vor dem Saisonauftakt-Rennen in Phillip Island fand nun die Teamvorstellung in Australien statt, mit den Fireblade CBR1000RR SP2 für Leon Camier und Ryuichi Kiyonari. Die Stimmen im O-Ton:

Leon Camier, #2   

“It’s a real honour to be involved in this project with the support of Honda, and the experience of both Moriwaki and Althea. It’s all new of course, and that means we have a lot of work ahead of us, but I think we have good potential and I’m excited to see what we can do. It will be good to get out on track with our rivals this week and understand where we are. There is a lot to work on as I’ve said, the bike having been developed in a different championship, but we’re ready for the challenge. Our main goal is to improve race by race.”

Ryuichi Kiyonari, # 23

“I am very excited to have this opportunity to return to World Superbike and I thank Honda, Moriwaki and Althea for putting their trust in me. A lot has changed since I was last in the championship, in 2009, and I think the level is now a lot higher with many fast riders. Having said that, I have worked hard in recent years and hope I can continue to grow this season with my new bike and new team; I am very motivated and believe we can work together to achieve some good results.”

“Of course today’s official Moriwaki Althea Honda Team launch marks a very special moment for all of us. I wish to thank Honda, HRC, Althea and Moriwaki and everybody involved in this project for putting in an incredible effort in order to make this happen. We know that this is going to be a challenging season of course but it will also be an exciting one. I have known our riders Leon Camier and Ryuichi Kiyonari for a long time and I know they are fighters, both highly motivated and ready to give one hundred per cent to this project. We are ready and looking forward to start!”

“Today is a very special day for all of us, and this new project a very exciting one. Together with Honda and Moriwaki we form a “dream team”, and I am honoured to represent the outfit as Team Manager. The energy that HRC is putting into this new adventure spurs us all on to do our very best. We know that the challenge we face is not an easy one, but we will give it our all. I thank Midori Moriwaki, Honda and everyone who supports us on this new journey”.
