Quattro Plant Kawasaki
Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, the Quattro Plant Kawasaki Team had a memorable 2015. Luke Mossey provided their finest moment by winning the BSB Riders Cup.
Staying clear of injury, for the first time in five seasons, the 22 year old Superbike ‘Rookie’, with a particularly strong second half to the year, which included third place podiums at both Thruxton & Assen, showed just what an exciting talent he is. Understandably, Mossey remains with the Team for a second term. His singular objective: to become one of the six coveted ‘Title Fighters’ going into the final three ‘Showdown’ rounds.
Filip Backlund, the likeable Swedish rider, joins Mossey as the Team’s second Superbike rider, and will be targeting regular top ten results.
For the first time in the Teams history, owner Peter Extance also moves into the British Super Sport class this year. In a master stroke, he has signed the prodigious talent of Northern Ireland’s Andy Reid as his challenger for the Title.
Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki will venture in to the three wheeled division of sidecars in 2016 and there is no better way than bringing the 2015 Hyundai British Sidecar Champions of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood to the squad for its first season in the sidecar category, Ricky and Ryan were dominant in 2015 and we look to continue there great form in 2016 and will be looking for a back to back championship win for our Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki riders.
Completing the line up is ‘Roads’ specialist James Hillier. A TT winner in 2013, James scored 2nd place finishes in both 2015 Lightweight & Senior TT’s, along with 3rd in the Superbike race. Hillier also joined the select club of riders who have lapped the Mountain Circuit in excess of 132mph.
