Updated: Kawasaki Ninja Nights Revving Up for Laguna Seca SBK
With Tom Sykes and his Kawasaki Ninja ZX–10R holding a comfortable lead in his title defense of the World Superbike Championship and Loris Baz standing in third place aboard his ZX–10R, you might expect that Kawasaki would have some important plans for celebrating 30 years of Ninjas during the 2014 SBK season. And you’d be right.
Following much of the same format as its successful Bike Nite in the Daylight Show, Team Green has joined forces with Two Brothers Racing to bring Kawasaki Ninja Nights 2014 to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on July 12th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. The gathering will feature a bike show and a raffle on the Laguna Seca grounds.
The Ninja Nights bike show will include three classes of competition: Best Race Replica Ninja, Best Custom Ninja, and Best Vintage Kawasaki. While the categories are pretty self-explanatory, we want to announce that MO will be sponsoring the Best Vintage Kawasaki class, and staffer Evans Brasfield will be there representing the publication. The bike contest prize sponsors are AGV, Pirelli, Cortech, and ooloclip. So, if you’ve got a cool Kawasaki, polish it up and show it off! Y
To make things even better for Kawasaki owners 3-day Laguna Seca Ninja 30th Anniversary exclusive ticket package is available.
We’ll have more information as the Laguna Seca World Superbike weekend approaches, or you can check out Kawasaki’s Facebook page to view the official rules and all event updates.
