2021 TT Nationals a Wrap

The Kawasaki sponsored annual event, on grassy farmland 20 minutes North of Hamilton featured great racing over the 2-day event.

With no man-made obstacles and no high-flying jumps, road-racers and offroad racers went head to head on a neutral playing field demonstrating their skills on the road-racing style layout on dirt. Take a look at some of the action held at the Fuller Farm.

Grass paddock racing layout.

Billee Fuller (KX85) was on form in the Senior Women’s division, taking out 2nd overall on her 85cc!

KawiGirls offroad ambassador Mikayla Rowe (KX250X) dominated the Senior Womens class with 5 wins from 5.

Seton Head (KX450) came from behind to win MX1 moto 1. Unfortunately he hit a marker and sustained a tendon injury in his hand.

Angus Evans (KX250) rounded out the podium in the MX2 class.

Loamy berms made for some spectacular action.

Mitch Rowe (KX500) and daughter Mikayla Rowe (KX250) in the classic class.

Motorcycling has a lot of synergies with our business both in customers, and passion from our own staff, so last year we started sponsoring both the New Zealand Motocross and Supercross Championships.
The title sponsorship of the Kawasaki MX team is a big step forward from last year and something we are truly excited about and looking forward to the coming season.” commented Jason Steele, TransDiesel Aftersales Business Manager.

“Kawasaki NZ is proud to present the Eni Kawasaki Race Team for the 2018/2019 New Zealand motocross season.

“Partnering with Eni represents an exciting partnership which is sure to herald a successful season for the team. Eni is a globally recognisable and respected brand that has aligned itself with motorsports such as Moto GP and Formula 1 internationally, so it makes sense to build this association at a national level” Leach added.

Eni Kawasaki Race Team has recruited Ethan Martens to campaign the season on the 2019 KX250 in the MX2 class and Cohen Chase to campaign the 2019 KX450 in the MX1 class.
