Gearlink Kawasaki News
29 November 2013
We are excited to announce our plans for the 2014 season which involves the team moving up to the elite MCE British Superbike class with Ben Wilson. Ben who has been a loyal member of the Gearlink Kawasaki squad will now step up to the challenge having contested the Supersport class for five years with the team. We will now be working hard over the winter to prepare the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R for Ben.
We are also delighted to announce that our 2013 Pirelli National Superstock 600 Champion, Luke Hedger, will remain with the team but will move up to the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship for 2014. He will be joined by Irish youngster Glenn Irwin who finished ninth overall in this class in 2013.
Team Manager Michael de Bidaph - "I am very excitied about moving up to Superbikes next year especially having Ben on board the bike. I feel the time is right for both the team and Ben to contest the Superbike Championship, but also realise it is a big step and a tough job but one the team is ready to take.
The signing of Luke and Glenn to continue our involvement in the British Supersport Championship for next season, is also an exciting prospect. I feel that whilst British Supersport has proven to be a highly competitive series over the past few years I also feel that, with these two young riders, we can be competing up there with the best."
