MSS Performance to run official Kawasaki Superstock team in 2020

After supporting Kawasaki Motors UK as Team Green Technical Partner for the previous three seasons, MSS Performance will make an eagerly anticipated return to the paddock in a racing capacity next year.

Owner of MSS Performance, Nick Morgan is gearing up to run the official Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship entry for Kawasaki Motors UK and Team Green consisting of a two rider line-up ready to challenge for race wins.

Experienced Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR rider and previous race winner, Chrissy Rouse will look to go a step further and aim for Championship success under the banner of the highly regarded Colchester-based operation. Joining Rouse will be 2019 Superstock 1000 podium finisher, Tom Ward who is relishing the chance for a maiden Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR ride.

Rouse said: “I’m extremely happy to be staying on the Kawasaki after really getting to grips with the Ninja ZX-10RR and having a strong finish to the season this year. I’m very excited to get 2020 underway, I believe we have all the ingredients to have a successful campaign & I’m really grateful for the support of Kawasaki, MSS and all the sponsors who are making it happen.”

Ward said: “I'm so excited to be joining MSS Performance and Team Green Kawasaki, it's something I've always dreamed of being a part of! The team looks like a great environment in which to learn and it's mega to have Chrissy as a teammate as we are good friends. We have all the tools to have a successful season, I have a good relationship with the guys from K-tech & I have run their products for the last five years so this will help me massively. I just want to say a massive thank you to Nick and Ross for giving me this amazing opportunity.”

Kawasaki stalwart, Nick Morgan cannot wait to get the wheels turning with an extensive testing programme planned prior to what is sure to be a competitive season of racing, commenting: “After a 7 year absence from the BSB paddock we are extremely excited to be coming back in 2020 as the Official Kawasaki Motors UK Superstock 1000 entry. Having signed Chrissy and Tom, I believe we have every opportunity to fight for the Championship.”

Kawasaki Motors UK Senior Racing Coordinator, Ross Burridge concluded: “Having worked with Nick originally when he ran his team, and more recently as our official technical partner, I am so happy to see him come back with a bang for next season! The rider line up is very strong, and with Nick’s unending experience with the Ninja ZX-10RR, I’m sure they will be battling at the front of the field straight from the off.”
