Team Kawasaki Racing

 
 

Join us in the SBK paddock for an unforgettable weekend!

We have teamed up with World Champion factory racing team Kawasaki to offer our customers a truly unique experience.


It is quite simple really:  Buy either a Team Experience or an SBK VIP* with the Team option and you will be guests of Team Kawasaki for the weekend! 


What this means in practice:

  1. You will have open access to the Kawasaki hospitality unit for drinks and snacks

  2. Lunch all three days for Team Experience customers

  3. We will organise a special garage tour so you can get a detailed inner look at the workings of the team; most events you will have unlimited garage access

  4. A pit lane walk

  5. A Kawasaki ‘welcome package’ with team shirt, cap, towel and poster

*VIP does not include Kawasaki hospitality (you don’t need it) and merchandise is a small extra cost)


Not to mention the love of all Kawi supporters at the circuit! Come help us support ‘Team Green’!

 

Team Green!

The Riders

Johnny Rea (65)

Reigning SBK World Champion!

Our friend from Northern Ireland took 3rd in the World SBK championship in 2014 riding his career-long Honda. Moving to Kawasaki in 2015 was a risky step, but one that was rewarded handsomely with a runaway world title! Johnny started in World Supersport with an amazing second place overall in his rookie year; then moved to Superbike in 2009, where he has always placed in the top 10 with two 5th places, a 4th, 3rd in 2014; and of course now the world champion in 2015 and 2016!


Tom Sykes (66)

2013 SBK World Champion!

Hailing from Huddersfield, England, Tom came to Kawasaki in 2011 with some impressive credentials in BSB. He was 13th in 2011 with one great victory and a pole position. In 2012 he has set the paddock alight with two podiums in Imola and a win in Monza - finishing the season just 0.5 pts behind Max Biaggi - the closest tournament in SBK history! Finally in 2013 he pulled it all together and took the World Championship! 2014 saw him leading most of the year, only to lose out to Sylvain Guintoli in the very last race. New team mate Jonathan Rea came to grips with the new Kawasaki in 2015; but Tom still pulled 3rd and won the award for best qualifying.

 

Open access to our Hospitality

The awesome new Kawasaki hospitality unit has indoor and delightful outdoor seating - where you can enjoy a beer or glass of wine and watch riders and other paddock denizens stroll by! Of course there is CCTV and superb staff on hand! Lunch is included for all team experience customers


Exclusive Paddock Dinner

Saturday night join us for a real “insiders” view of the paddock and enjoy dinner with the Kawasaki team! (Small added cost, available to all Team, VIP, and paddock-only customers)  Europe only.

COSTS

You MAY purchase access separately, however if you join us as a full Package Tour customer you will have a substantial discount on the price of the Team Experience pass or VIP (about €50)


Prices for the passes purchased WITHOUT the package:


Team Experience: €350 - €500 depending on venue.

Platinum upgrade: +€400

SBK VIP upgrade: €275 (addition to regular VIP.  More on SBK VIP...)

Overseas hospitality

We offer the Team Experience at all rounds. The hospitality at some of the rounds is a bit ‘primitive’ compared to Europe, however this is compensated by the unique opportunity to be very close to the team and riders!  For improved hospitality we recommend the SBK VIP (Australia and Qatar rounds especially, there is a private tent at Thailand & Laguna Seca)

 

Exclusive Team Merchandise

A welcome pack with cool Kawasaki shirt, cap, posters & discounts on further merchandise!  A great Xmas pressie for your jealous friends!

 

Private garage tours

You will have a private guided tour of the truck, garage & pit where you will be able to see the teams in action, and ask any questions you have. While the actual scheduling depends on how the bikes are going, customers have been known to watch sessions and races from inside the garage! In general you can use the viewing area inside the garage at any time (restricted at some circuits)


Pit Lane Walks and maybe even podium!

You will be able to participate in pit lane walks to see all the garages up close, and if one of the Kawasaki riders hits a podium (this has been known to happen :-) you generally will be able to join the celebration! (restricted at a few circuits)

Go PLATINUM and enjoy the START GRID!

If you really want to go all-out, we can offer just 2 places on the SBK Race START GRID! Our ‘Platinum’ Team experience also includes additional merchandise and a private garage tour; but for the truly heart-stopping moment; nothing will equal standing next to Tom or Jon on the front row of he start grid!(VERY limited, we cannot guarantee which race)
