HENLEYS AND MORAIS JOIN KAWASAKI WORLD SUPERBIKE TEAM
With less than a week to go before their guest appearance in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship, former double British Superbike Champions and current World Superbike Championship team, Paul Bird Motorsport, will have both a new sponsor as well as a replacement rider at the meeting at Brands Hatch on August 7/8/9th.
Running the official factory Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10Rs, the www.supercasino.com, Vent-Axia and Kick Energy-backed team will field South African Sheridan Morais alongside Australian ace Broc Parkes due to former MotoGP and WSB race winner Makoto Tamada being ruled out through injury following his crash at Brno last week.
24-year-old Morais deputised for Tamada at the Kyalami round and scored solid points in both races and in addition, knows his way around Brands given he scored a second place finish in last year's FIM Superstock 1000 Championship race there so is confident of further success.
In addition, the team will be hoping to celebrate a new sponsorship deal in style with leading clothing brand Henleys.
Established in 1996, Henleys is one of today's most influential and innovative UK fashion brands. With casual wear for both men and women, the product range also includes an impressive denim range, outerwear and accessories, making Henleys a true lifestyle brand.
"We recognise the fast-paced environment our customers live in and aim to create collections with a distinct personality that enhance the wearer's lifestyle so by linking up with Paul Bird and the Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team, that allows us to do that," said Henleys Creative Director Simon Peters.
Team owner Paul Bird commented: "We are delighted to welcome Henleys to our portfolio of distinguished partners and they are another recognised brand that adds vitality to our team. We feel their products reflect in what we are doing and look forward to a successful association, starting this week at Brands Hatch."
