New Canadian Kawi program!!!

New set-up for Canadian Kawasaki team

By John Hopkins

Four-time defending Parts Canada Superbike Championship winning team Canadian Kawawsaki Motors has announced a restructuring of its program for 2010.

Competition Systems, owned by noted race tuner Mike Crompton, has taken over the squad. According to a press release Competition Systems will shortly announce its lone rider, who will compete solely in the Superbike feature class aboard a Ninja ZX-10R. The new team will be called 'Competition Systems Kawasaki Race Team.'

It is believed the rider for the team will not be Jordan Szoke, who has won the past four Parts Canada Superbike and Yoshimura Pro Sport Bike titles for the 'green team', but 2008 HJC Pro Rookie of the Year Alex Welsh, who made his factory debut with Kawasaki last summer. The Uxbridge, ON racer is understood to still have a year remaining on his Canadian Kawasaki Motors contract while Szoke and Kawasaki were believed to be struggling to come to a suitable extension agreement.

Last year Szoke tied Steve Crevier for the most Canadian Superbike titles with six and became the winningest rider in the sport's history with 29 race victories.

“Due to a number of circumstances we have decided to suspend activities with our factory program for 2010,” said Jeff Comello of Canadian Kawasaki Motors in a press release. “But despite this state of change we have tried to keep as much continuity as possible and Mike Crompton and Competition Systems are the perfect fit. We have been together now for four-plus years and have enjoyed a great deal of success.”

Crompton has some 40 years of experience in the Canadian motorcycle industry, supplying engines and race equipment to some of the country’s leading competitors.

“Canadian Kawasaki Motors is a great company and I’m looking forward to this,” Crompton said. “We already have a good team structure and equipment. We’ve spent a number of years building this program and all we have to do is just continue what we’ve started.”

The agreement between Canadian Kawasaki Motors and Competition Systems is for one year and will be re-evaluated at the end of the 2010 racing season, the release said.

“Kawasaki is committed to showcasing the Ninja brand in competition and we feel strongly that we need to be behind the Parts Canada Superbike Championship,” Comello added. “This is the perfect venue for us to display our products.”

The number one plate holder in Canada is not coming back to defend title? There is much more going on then meets the eye when a manf. doesnt want its top rider back............

Thoughts? 2 cents...
