Young guns sign up for NEC Supercross

Published: 11 September 2009

The LPE Kawasaki team has staked its intent by announcing a title-challenging team ahead of the first rounds of the 2009 / 2010 Future West ACU British Supercross Championships which take place for the first time at The Carole Nash International Motorcycle and Scooter Show on the 28th November and 5th December 2009.

The impressive Elliott Banks Browne, currently second in both the MMX British Open Championship and The Wulfsport British Masters Championship, will compete alongside team mate Kristian Whatley who has recovered from injury to record recent podium finishes in Scotland at the MMX Championship and The Ken Hall Trophy in Surrey.

The Future West ACU British SX Championships are an exciting new addition to the NEC Show which, for the first time, has a dedicated Off-Road Zone, with trade and display stands showcasing the latest bikes and kit innovations from all the leading brands.

LPE Kawasaki, the official Kawasaki UK motocross team, is looking forward to unveiling the manufacturer’s new KXF450 model in front of capacity crowds expected at the supercross track in Hall 5 of the NEC.

The Kawasaki race truck and display stand will also be present throughout the ten day show to profile its staple of 2010 bike models from the Kawasaki off-road range, with team riders on hand to meet fans and sign autographs.

Steve James, LPE Kawasaki team manager said: “It’s great that supercross is part of the International Motorcycle Show this year as it will give both avid fans and those who are yet to witness the sport the chance to experience the buzz that supercross generates. We are hopeful our riders will challenge for the podium however supercross is very unpredictable and that’s what makes it so compelling to spectators.”
