With the recent news that Lanes Kawasaki rider Scott Elderfield has parted company with the Sussex based outfit, the Kawasaki Motors UK supported team have grasped the opportunity to turn their attention to the youth class.
Delighted to have signed talented rising star, James Dunn, the team are looking forward to the 16 year old Swindon rider’s appearances in MXY2, BYMX as well as the high profile Red Bull Elite Youth Cup on the Kawasaki KX250F.
Dunn has enjoyed a strong start to the 2011 season and, along with KX450F mounted team mate Alex Snow, the Lanes Kawasaki team are once more back up to full strength according to Team Principle, Dean Lane.
“We see this as a fork in the road to be honest, a chance to regroup and refresh and, with young James on board, that’s just what it is, refreshing!
No mistake we’ve got some work to do, but Alex and James both love to graft and we are looking forward to the rest of the season with real optimism”.
For Ross Burridge – Racing Coordinator for Kawasaki Motors UK – the change in direction makes sense and augments the company’s on-going commitment to nurturing young talent.
“Our Team Green philosophy is to identify and then hone young talent. With James, the Lanes Kawasaki team have a chance to help fashion and encourage a burgeoning motocross talent; we wish them every possible success”.
