It’s been recently confirmed that Silicone Engineering Racing will take over the reigns from Quattro Plant JG Speedfit Kawasaki, as Kawasaki UK’s official roads supported team for the 2019 season.
Having enjoyed sustained great results, tumultuous moments, regularly leading Kawasaki’s challenge at the premier roads events, it’s no wonder that the hard working Silicone team have been selected to lead the manufacturing giants challenge at TT 2019.
Agonisingly close to securing Pokerstars Senior TT title this year, the addition of more direct support from Kawasaki UK, could well prove a crucial factor in increasing their chances of claiming pure road racing’s biggest prize in 2019.

At a glance over the past three seasons, significant achievements have included two Ulster GP victories, a maiden Supersport TT victory, two Southern 100 Solo Championship titles, over 25 wins at Oliver’s Mount, back to back Superbike Classic TT victories and two Duke Road Race Rankings Championship titles.
It wouldn’t at all be a surprise if he provides Kawasaki with a first Senior TT victory since 1975 in 2019, as the fast talking, hugely respected racer aims to gain the title that pure road racers most crave.
