Mason set for Kawasaki assault with PR Racing

Wednesday, November 30 2011

Gary Mason will be back on a Kawasaki in the 2012 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship after joining forces with the PR Racing Kawasaki team, who have today (Wednesday) confirmed their line-up for the new season.

Mason, who has competed in over 200 BSB races, had his first taste of the 2012 specification Kawasaki last season and is already working with the Liverpool-based squad in preparation for the team's first test. Mason was a podium finisher last season and believes that the hard work and passion of the team will project them into the forefront of BSB as the new technical regulations equal the opposition.  

Mason said: "I really can't wait until next season and I am happy as we have every chance of winning and achieving podiums with the new rules for next year. I was always really keen to stay with Kawasaki, although I had other options, as we started working last year on the development and I wanted to continue that as I feel that the bike has real potential. As a team, PR Racing really are passionate about what they do and that is so important; a happy team generally equals a fast team.

"We have a lot to prove and we definitely want to leave some of the competition with red faces next year that's for sure. I know where we need to work on already with the bike having ridden a 2012 specification Kawasaki last year so we already have a bit of a head start in terms of knowing what we need to focus on straight away. The team have already begun work on the bike so we can get the best out of it from the start of the year; we know the Kawasaki will be strong we just need to ensure we have smooth power delivery."

"The new season and the new rules is what racing is all about and I can't wait to start work with the PR Racing team on the Kawasaki. For me it is also going to be great having Si as a team-mate again as I get on well with him and it will be great to have him back again after his horrible injury from this season. We will push each other all the way and now I am just continuing my training and getting ready so we can start testing soon."
