World Superbike Championship
(in brief)

World Superbikes



Best effort has been the battling #9 Chris Walker, who has fought his ZX-10R into the top ten most races, with best result a single third, finishing the championship in seventh place overall. :clap
What is remarkable is that he has been able to out perform other Kawasaki riders despite major injury in the last races caused by a reckless Rizla Suzuki rider hitting him at Assen.



Chris is always entertaining to watch, his style making the bike move about substantially more than any other rider. Hope he gets better support in 2006, with the right machinery he is a potential winner.



Kawasaki have not won this championship since Scott Russell did the business on the ZX-7R in 1993 with Aaron Slight third.

World Supersport

The ZX-6RR has achieved little this year with the best rider, Alessandro Antonelli managing 16th in the championship. This is after Andrew Pitt won the championship in 2001 and Ian McPherson got second in 1999.


AMA Championships
(even briefer)

AMA Superbikes

Best effort was Josh Hayes on a ZX-10R, with best finish a third and ninth in the championship.


Ben Attard

AMA Supersport

The ZX-6RR has been dominant in the AMA series with Tommy Hayden winning, brother Roger runner up (also fourth in Superstock) and Ben Attard eighth (also fourth in Formula Extreme). Tommy was never out of the top six with three wins and five seconds.


Tommy & Roger Hayden

Next year Roger will take over as #1 rider in the Supersport series, whilst significantly, Kawasaki will be fielding a full works Superbike team with Tommy on board the new 2006 ZX-10R.
