Kawasaki WSBK’s Sykes & Lascorz to BSB

2011 British Superbike

The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship is set for a spectacular triple-header round on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit on Aug. 5-7.

After securing a sensational ‘wildcard’ double win at the event last year, World Superbike Championship star Tom Sykes will return onboard the factory WSB Kawasaki alongside team-mate Joan Lascorz.

Sykes and the Kawasaki WSB team are seeking a repeat performance against the BSB’s current stars including champions Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne, Ryuichi Kiyonari and former MotoGP ace John Hopkins.

Sykes is a former BSB title contender himself, having come close to securing the BSB crown in 2008 when he was embroiled in a five-way title fight, before ultimately finishing the season in fourth. The Kawasaki factory squad is headed by former double BSB championship winning team owner Paul Bird who has supported the big Brands Hatch summer Superbike event each year since 2009.

Spaniard Joan Lascorz last raced at Brands Hatch in the 2008 World Supersport Championship and has recently scored some of his best finishes of the season with a top five finish at Aragon and two top ten finishes at the last round of Brno to become the highest placed Kawasaki rider in the World Championship.
