Former rugby player, Michael Howarth, has announced he is to head up a new British Superbike team for 2013 in the form of the MH Kawasaki Team. The new team comes after Mike spent last year racing in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship but with previous experience as head of the Tena for Men squad in 2008, returning to team running was a no brainer!
Michael’s two riders come in the form of Howie Mainwaring; who makes his return to Superbikes after scoring podium finishes in last year’s Superstock class, and Luke Quigley, who achieved point scoring finishes with GBmoto Honda in 2012. Michael said that the decision to move back to team leader was an easy one;
‘I have really big personal goals for the team and high expectations of both the riders…I have so much enthusiasm and it’s what you need to be successful in racing. The combination of me wanting this team to be a success, plus a pair of dedicated riders whose ultimate passion is racing, should be an exciting prospect.’
