G&S Racing Kawasaki have welcomed Sam Coventry and Ben Luxton to the team.

Coventry will link up with Tom Fisher to contest the Superstock 1000 championship for the Wyberton-based team, while Luxton will campaign the Superstock 600 series.

Coventry, 23, said: “I’m so pleased to have signed for such a professional and experienced team as G&S Racing Kawasaki and am really looking forward to getting back on a 1000cc machine.

“Prior to me running in the British Supersport championship I contested the Spanish championship (CEV) and feel that I can bring that experience to the table this year to show everyone what I am capable of.

“The Superstock 1000 class is looking really competitive this year with some great format changes also.

“I’m really grateful to Tom and Mark Fisher at G&S Racing Kawasaki for giving me this chance on the new Kawasaki ZX10RR and can’t wait to get the season underway.”

Luxton, 22, added: “I am thrilled to be part of G&S Racing Kawasaki for 2017 and extremely excited to get the season rolling.

“I would like to thank all my sponsors for making this happen and also say a big thank you to everyone at G&S Racing Kawasaki for giving me this opportunity.”

Both bikes are currently being prepared in readiness for a team test in Spain with Bitubo next week
