CHAMPION ROUSE WINS SUPPORT FROM COLCHESTER KAWASAKI
REIGNING Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Champion Chrissy Rouse is delighted to
announce a sponsorship deal with the UK’s number one Kawasaki dealership,
Colchester Kawasaki, as he returns to defend his crown this year.
The motorcycle racer from Burnopfield near Newcastle will be a proud ambassador
for the UK’s leading dealership as he moves back to Kawasaki power with the GR
Motorsport squad backed by Stauff UK.
Last month, GR Motorsport boss Brent Gladwin revealed he had signed the Geordie
in a bid to reclaim the title he won in 2020 while riding the Crowe Performance BMW.
Rouse will now be back under the Kawasaki banner as he pilots the new ZX-10RR
and has won the support of one of the UK’s most iconic dealers, Colchester
Based in Colchester, Essex, Colchester Kawasaki is one of just 10 Elite Kawasaki
dealerships in the country and is home to hundreds of new Kawasaki road and off-
road machines, along with a huge selection of used bikes.
And it’s not just Kawasakis – Colchester Kawasaki is also a dealer for Moto Guzzi,
Piaggio, Vespa, MP3, Aprilia & Mutt Motorcycles bikes and scooters.
The dealership has scooped the prestigious ‘Dealer of the Year’ award from MCN
twice – in 2017 and 2019 – and was also named Kawasaki’s own Dealer of the Year
Not only a leading road and off-road dealership, Colchester Kawasaki has a long
and strong racing heritage, having been involved with teams all the way up to British
Superbike level for more than 20 years.
“I’m absolutely over the moon to be working with Colchester Kawasaki in 2021,” said
Rouse. “It’s been amazing having the support from Luke and the team for the
“Chasin’ The Racin’” podcast that I work on with road racer Dominic Herbertson, but
I’m really excited to further build on that in 2021 and be involved with some really
cool and exciting plans.”
“I can’t wait to get out testing on my new Kawasaki in preparation for round 1 at
Oulton Park in Cheshire. I was supposed to race the ZX-10RR last year but for
various reasons we had to change our plans so it’s been fantastic to be welcomed
back into the Kawasaki family.
“I’m hoping we can continue the success from last season and get Kawasaki back on
the top step of the Superstock 1000 podium with the new ZX-10RR.
The 2021 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship is set to kick-off on May
1st at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
