“It nice to be back for another year of racing! The last few years have been up and down due to injury, so it’s nice to be starting the season fit and healthy. I have to send a special thank you to Stephen Mion from Fitmoto for my training program that has put me in the best shape possible for the 2019 season. I’m highly motivated for the year ahead and I cannot wait to hit the track.”
Team GSR Kawasaki comprises Glenn Scott as rider and team manager, Al Samuels as Crew Chief, Mick Muldoon as first mechanic, Ryan Hughes as second mechanic and Tamara Sexty will coordinate communications and media. GSR Kawasaki will also have support from many returning sponsors from 2018.
“I’m really excited to have my supporters back on board for 2019, it feels great to have that local support and backing from people who are so passionate about bikes and racing".
"A big thank you to the following sponsors: Kawasaki Motors Australia / Easy Mix Concrete / Darby St Automotive / BJ Howes Metal Land / Commercial Kitchens Direct / Maxima Oils / K&R Hydraulics Workshop / Maverick Racing Development / Singo’s Wholesale Meats / Gimoto / Fitmoto”.
