Today, 29th March 2019, the project and the new Kawasaki Provec structure with which Ana Carrasco will defend her World Championship title were presented at the Motocard Centre in Barcelona.
After a winter where Ana has had a never ending list of commitments with the media, the last two months have served for the Murcian rider to concentrate on training for many hours; physical, off-road and the last few weeks testing the new Kawasaki Ninja 400 prepared by the technicians of Provec Racing.
Ana Carrasco will be the only member of this team so that Provec can concentrate on her performance. 2018 has passed and although Ana will carry the number one of the Kawasaki fairing, she sets of with 0 points, knowing that the expectation and pressure will be very high.
The first race of the WorldSPP300 World Championship takes place on April 7th at Motorland Aragon.
Ana Carrasco (Rider): "It has been one the busiest winters of my life, we have made many changes at the sports level as well as personal level and I'm very eager to start the season to see the results of all this. Although I've had to do a lot of media work these months, I've also been able to work a lot on the motorcycle and I think that I'm ready for the first race. I'm happy with all my team, the work we've carried out during the pre-season tests and I'm very exited and keen to have a good season and be be able to return all the effort over these months to the team via good results and to give my best this year."
Jordi Caparros (Team Manager): "The 2019 season is here, we've been working for months to start this project with maximum strength, certain that it will be a fast-paced year, waiting for the final technical regulations from the FIM, all the members of the team and our supplies have worked hard to have the Kawasaki Ninja 400 ready. Ana has also worked hard, in the gym as as on the track, the expectations are high so we'll have to stay tuned in, and, finally, thank you to the innumerable people that have supported in this project"
