Die Grünen stellten in Barcelona im Workshop des Kawasaki Racing Teams die Superbike-WM-Truppe für 2020 vor, mit dem 5-fachen Weltmeister Jonathan Rea und Neuzugang Alex Lowes. Der erste Test mit der ZX10-RR ist in Australien auf Phillip Island am 24./25. Februar abgesetzt, am Wochenende darauf (28.2 bis 2.3.) findet an gleicher Stelle das erste Saisonrennen statt.
Die Stimmen im O-Ton:
Jonathan Rea: »We have had a solid pre-season where I felt fast and consistent and the target is to win another championship – for the team, Kawasaki and myself. Tonight is the start of another great year together. This is the time when it all becomes real and it is really fitting to do it in our team workshop where all the hard work goes in preparing our bike and our season. It has been particularly nice to do it in front of many of our sponsors and the family and friends of our mechanics. Not long until the season starts now!”
Alex Lowes: »I have been with the team for a few months now but we have had the chance to show our supporters and sponsors the final colours for our championship challenge tonight. It has been great to be part of this team and it was really nice to be seen in Kawasaki green for the first time. This has been a fantastic event, especially with all the team here in their own regular working environment. After this, it is down to Australia for the first race of the season.«
