Motorcycle Live. Happy New Year.

The Motorcycle Live show at the NEC traditionally marks the beginning of the new racing season. Who’s doing what, on what and who’s testing and when? That sort of stuff. The team spent an enjoyable couple of days on the Kawasaki stand rubbing shoulders with Jonathan Rea, Tom Sykes, Leon Haslam and Luke Mossey. We […]

Round Twelve. Kent. Indian Summer.

These blogs usually start with a rather negative comment on the weather. Not this time, it was brilliant! Race day on the Brands Hatch grand prix layout on a sunny day is always special. This weekend brought back memories of ‘Foggy Mania’ with a huge crowd for the MCE Superbike Championship Showdown between Shakey Byrne […]

Round Eleven. Assen. Dutch Courage.

With the BSB championship paddock assembled at Assen, north Holland, everyone’s attention turned to the weather forecast Apps on their phones! No Superstock 1000 round this time, so no James Rispoli. However, our newly crowned Moto3 standard class champion Max Cook was looking forward to racing against a number of local riders as well as […]

Round Ten. Cheshire. Autumn Chill.

No Indian summer so far and you certainly wouldn’t want to have been camping out on Oulton Park’s muddy hillsides. The racing warmed things up – first round of the Superbike Showdown. The Quattro Plant Kawasaki team was without Billy again – on doctors’ advice – James had a good run but the star of […]

Round Nine. Northamptonshire. Very Wet and Windy.

What is it about the Silverstone track and the local weather patterns? They seem always to conspire to make for a difficult weekend – for teams, riders and spectators alike. Despite the conditions, another great event for Max, Superstock progress for James but a tough Superbike substitution for Luke. Max Cook. HEL Performance British Motostar […]

Round Eight. Lincolnshire. Party in the Park. And British Talent Cup Selection.

A very big crowd at Cadwell Park, but sadly no Quattro Plant Kawasaki Superbike as our rider Billy McConnell continues to recover from the injuries he sustained at Thruxton. Still, James Rispoli was on duty for the Superstock 1000 class and young Max Cook would be gunning for more podiums in his hunt for the […]

Round Seven. Hampshire. Tyred-out.

The high-speed Thruxton circuit presents a unique challenge to riders and engineers alike. Superfast, bumpy corners and extremely aggressive tyre wear are the key ingredients. Billy McConnell. MCE British Superbike Championship. Interesting build up to race day, illustrating the swings and roundabouts of motor racing. Billy on his Quattro Plant Kawasaki was flying on Friday […]

Round Six. Kentish Summer.

Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit – summer holidays started and halfway point in the season. A great event. Hospitality unit spruced up ready to welcome over 50 team guests and supporters on race day. Billy McConnell. MCE British Superbike Championship. Good start to the weekend in the first free practice session, comfortably in the top […]

Round Five. Norfolk. Light Nights.

Heatwave over, rain passed, sunny periods – ideal for fast racing. Billy McConnell. MCE British Superbike Championship. Billy’s best result of the season last year was here at Snetterton, fourth place in race one. A confidence inspiring test at the circuit three weeks earlier and a strong performance at the previous round in Knockhill provided […]

Round Four. Scotland. Bright and Breezy.

After a dreary start on the Friday, the weather steadily improved over the weekend and paved the way for some great racing. It was good to welcome so many guests from Quattro Plant, Carillion and AUS. Billy McConnell. MCE British Superbike Championship. After a positive BSB test day at Snetterton, Billy’s Quattro Plant Kawasaki ZX-10RR […]

Donington Park. World Superbikes Support Race.

The Quattro Plant FS-3 Racing team was on duty at the weekend running James Rispoli in the latest round of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 championship. As it was a support race for the world series, track time was limited and pushed back to end of each day. Friday evening practice was used by James […]

Round Three. Chilly Cheshire. Making Progress.

The Quattro Plant FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team was ready to go at Oulton Park following last week’s test day. Billy, James and the whole team were feeling much more confident now we’re getting on top of our new Kawasaki ZX-10RRs. As it was the May Day Bank Holiday, the weather forecast was iffy. It would […]

Round Two. Kent. Indy-go-round. (And a Test at Oulton Park).

Four-day meeting over the Easter holiday running on the 1.2 mile Indy circuit layout at Brands Hatch. Pick your spot carefully and you can follow the riders around the complete lap. It all started early afternoon on Good Friday with the first free practice for James in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 class. James quickly […]

Round One. Leicestershire. Wet, Dry and Craner Curves.

MCE British Superbike Championship 2017, round one, Donington Park. The home circuit for the Quattro Plant FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team, as we’ll be known this year. Great spectating makes it a fans’ favourite. The story of round one actually starts a week earlier as an official BSB test day was scheduled for 22 March. The […]

Cartagena, Spain. Sun, Sea and Speed.

Bit late, but here’s an update on our trip to Spain for the annual Pro-Test at Cartagena. It was good to get out of the workshop after a long, busy winter. We’ve loaded up a good selection of sunny photos onto the gallery page. One of the highlights was the first run out for our […]

MCN London Motorcycle Show

It seems like only days ago we were at the NEC show, announcing our plans for 2017. Today our new transporter sets off for southern Spain for the Cartagena Pro-Test where we’ll be lining up alongside many of our competitors. A winter of hard work culminated with the unveiling of our bike livery for 2017 […]
