Bryan Staring - Ninja ZX-10RR #67
International athlete and local hero returning to the team in 2019
“I am particularly happy to remain with the Kawasaki BCperformance Racing Team for 2019. The positive dynamic of this small team creates a motivational environment that's a pleasure to be involved with. We continually learnt as a team throughout the 2018 season. I look forward to applying our knowledge and experience together to ensure 2019 is a greater success. I must thank Kelvin Reilly, Kawasaki and all the team sponsors for their continuing support towards the team, one that I am very happy to be a part of.”
Lachlan Epis - Ninja ZX-10RR #22
Joining the Kawasaki BCperformance Racing Team in 2019
“I’m super excited to be riding for Kawasaki BCperformance Racing Team in the 2019 ASBK Championship on board a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR. I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and being surrounded by an experienced and professional team. I’m looking forward to my first full year on a superbike (SBK) and absorbing as much information as I can before the season starts in February. I would like to thank Kelvin Reilly, BCperformance and Kawasaki Motors Australia for this opportunity and I'm looking forward to seeing what I've got next year. Having an experienced team mate in Bryan Staring is something that I'm really looking forward to as I begin my rookie campaign.”
Team Owner and Manager Kelvin Reilly is looking forward to a strong 2019 racing season.
“For 2019 I believe we have a real dynamic team that will gain results, along with the updated 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR. It’s a pleasure to be working with Bryan again and achieving success he so rightly deserves after the valuable experience we gained during the 2018 campaign. I believe from the get go we can achieve race wins and be in with a shot of the championship in what is going to be another super competitive year. Continuing with tradition, we also welcome 18 year old Lachlan Epis to the team. He has shown great speed during some one-off appearances on a superbike in 2018 and has plenty of world championship experience to draw from.”
“As our working relationship gets stronger and stronger every year, it is also a pleasure to work with Kawasaki Motors Australia and I must thank them for their continued support along with all our other sponsors who will be announced shortly.”
Kawasaki Motors Australia embrace supporting the BCperformance team again in 2019. In the 2019 campaign, the Kawasaki BCperformance Racing Team will be the first Australian team to fully benefit from the technology developed with the 4 time Championship World Superbike team as they utilise the full power of the 2019 Ninja ZX-10RR motorcycles.
Tayla Relph - Ninja 400 #28
“I am ecstatic to be given this opportunity to race with Kawasaki BCperformance racing team for the 2019 championship on-board the Kawasaki Ninja 400. Throughout the 2018 season I was consistently within the top five; ending the championship with a second place finish at Phillip Island and now working with Kawasaki BCperformance, I am very confident we can achieve our goal of fighting for the Championship. I believe the Kawasaki Ninja 400’s and Dunlop tyre will be very competitive next year in the Australian Supersport 300 Championship and I am really excited to be working with such an experienced team and I will take full advantage of this incredible opportunity they have given me for 2019.”
