18 December 2015
Gearlink Kawasaki is very pleased to announce some of our plans for the 2016 season. We will run two Kawasaki ZX-6R's in the British Supersport Championship with former Superstock 600 Champion Luke Hedger and newly crowned Superstock 600 Champion Mason Law.
Gearlink Kawasaki has always been heavily involved in bringing new young riders through the ranks and once again will field two young promising riders next season. Their 2015 rider Glenn Irwin has recently signed for one of the most sought after rides in the paddock with the Paul Bird Ducati team. 20 year old Luke Hedger rejoined the team a quarter of the way through the 2015 season and consistently secured strong top ten results in every race and is more than capable of achieving podium places next year.
Mason Law, also 20, was nearly untouchable in the Superstock 600 class in 2015 gaining ten podiums along the way and winning the class by 59 points. He is eager to now step up to the main Supersport class with the Gearlink Kawasaki team, learn and secure some good results.
Michael de Bidaph - Team Principal - "I am delighted to have signed Luke and Mason to compete in the British Supersport Championship for the 2016 race season. Whilst i am sure it will be another extremely competitive year i feel that with these two young riders we will be able to achieve podiums and once again our aim is to put everything into winning the Supersport Championship."
Luke Hedger - "I am happy to be back with Gearlink Kawasaki again for 2016, this will be my fourth season with the team. I am really looking forward to putting all my effort into the forthcoming year and i will be trying my hardest all year to achieve strong results."
Mason Law - " Having had an awesome season in winning the Superstock 600 Championship in 2015 i am extremely looking forward to the 2016 as i will be joining a team that i have wanted to ride for since joining the BSB paddock, Gearlink Kawasaki. Michael and Norma have a wealth of experience in this game to help me make the step up to Supersport beacuse i know with the right bike and the right team good results can be achieved."
