A joint press release from Canadian Kawasaki and Competition Systems, which ran the Canadian Kawasaki race team in 2010, says that Jordan Szoke will rejoin the brand for the 2011 season, racing a ZX-10R in the Parts Canada Superbike series.
Legendary tuner and Competition Systems owner Mike Crompton said, "Kawasaki’s strong commitment to racing has allowed Jordan and our team to reunite and battle for more championship wins.” Crompton has been involved with the team for many years before taking it over last year.
Szoke and Kawasaki are virtually synonymous in Canadian racing, as the Brantford native has five Superbike and four Sport Bike titles to his credit on Kawasaki machines since his first title in 1998. Szoke raced Hondas in 2010 for his team Waznie Racing, taking both the Superbike and Sport Bike titles.
Who else will be racing what is still a deep mystery. Of all the other possible entrants, only BMW has announced that Mike Ferreira and Brett McCormick will be riding for the team this year.
He thought he was worth a fortune in 2010.
Now he’s geting a ride while he can.
Good for him to have a ride again… and what did he race when he was spending his own money? A Honda. 😉
So why didn’t Kawi grab him last year …. they wouldn’t be waiting for number 1 for the green machine would they? 🙂
