I am also pleased to welcome Ashley on board. He’s proven himself to be a young rider with a great future in the sport and his addition to the team is very much in keeping with Blackhorse Kawasaki's ethos of supporting and developing talented young riders and enabling them to progress in their racing careers.

"As a team, we are honoured to once again be entrusted with the tag of Official Kawasaki Motors UK Superstock Team, and look forward to a successful and enjoyable 2012 season."
