SBK, Rea, Lowes, Forés: the Kawasaki trio at the Suzuka 8 Hours

The Japanese team has resolved its concerns in light of the race scheduled for July 19th on the Japanese track


One of the most important events in the Rising Sun. We're talking about the Suzuka 8 Hours, scheduled from July 17th to 19th. Over the years, the "roller coaster" challenge has been full of twists and thrills, like the last edition with its exhilarating finale.

Kawasaki had won, despite Johnny Rea's fall during the last lap. On the same day, the Japanese team made it known that it would once again be officially present at the Japanese stage of the World Endurance Championship. As usual, Johnny Rea, who's aiming for an encore, will lead the trio. Alex Lowes who, up until last year, took part in the Suzuka 8 Hours on a Yamaha, will also be with him.

And, finally, Xavi Forés. The Japanese team decided to have the Spaniard - who joined Manuel Puccetti's team last November, replacing Toprak Razgatlioglu - on its official team.
