Lovett joins Kawasaki’s growing list of female supported riders including Australian MX Champion Meghan Rutledge and media personality and championship winning boxer Lauryn Eagle.
Sydney based Sophie Lovett is fast making a name for herself in Australian road racing winning the ASBK Pro Stock C/D-Grade championship in 2012 and further increasing her speed in 2013. Lovett recently won the opening round of the 2013 ASBK 250cc Women’s Production class championship and clocked the fastest lap time for the entire 250cc Prod. class in the final race.
Kawasaki is pleased that Sophie Lovett is quickly finding success in the largely male dominated sport of road racing and is looking forward to working alongside her to increase the profile of female motorcycle riding and racing in Australia.
Sophie Lovett is pleased to receive support from Kawasaki in 2013, saying, “Joining with Kawasaki has been a fantastic opportunity and will further enable me to achieve my goals of winning the ASBK Women’s championship and place top 5 in the B-Grade ASBK Pro Stock championship. The Kawasaki Ninja is such a solid platform for a race bike as can be seen in the Pro Stock class where there are so many green bikes.”
“I’m really looking forward to showing other ladies that if I can be out there racing, then they can too. The Women’s 250cc Production class is a fantastic way for ladies who ride on the road to transition into an affordable racing class. As a Kawasaki supported racer and ambassador, I hope to raise the profile of female road riding and racing in Australia and hopefully bring more women into the male dominated sport.”
Kawasaki is supporting Sophie Lovett throughout 2013 as she competes in the 250cc Production class on board a Ninja 250R and the Pro Stock class on board a Ninja ZX-10R.
Sophie Lovett will appear as a guest of Kawasaki at selected events throughout 2013 including dealership based women in motorcycling evenings and the 2013 Sydney Motorcycle & Scooter Show in November.
