The series has been described as a fun, level playing field competition that is extremely affordable and aimed at privateer riders. This year the series will feature a Ladies Championship, under 21 Championship and Seniors Championship which is a new class.
Contestants will be competing for a chance at the prize pool which is valued at $30,000 and includes a Kawasaki KX450F for first place and a Ninja 300 for second place outright.
Di Jones and Jacob Whitehouse will both be supported by Kawasaki Motors Australia through team SA Kawasaki BCperformance. This will be the second year of competition for Di Jones and the first year for Jacob who was selected after showing potential through the MotoDNA Junior Road Racing Development Program.
Kawasaki Motors Finance will re-enter the series with Luke Burges of Mackay Kawasaki as a fulltime team rider plus a wildcard rider at each round. Round 1 will feature Mitch Pirotta from On Two Wheels Motorsports as the Kawasaki Motors Finance wildcard entry.
CEO of Kawasaki Motors Finance, Matt Stevens says “We loved the series last year and we are delighted to be supporting the series again in 2015. The cup provides a platform for up-and-coming champions and privateers to develop their skills and in saying that, the series is fiercely competitive and features riders with proven talent”.
Kawasaki Motors Finance is aiming for podiums at each round. “Last year we had a lot of fun and had the chance to fine-tune our machines. Thanks to Mackay Kawasaki, Carl Walters and Kawasaki Motors Australia, we have great motorcycles this year and we will be aiming for the title”, commented Mathew.
