After a successful season in Superstock last year, Brit Bradley Ward is gearing up for a maiden season is MotoAmerica Superbike when racing finally get underway.

In addition, he has recently launched a new interactive website and is more active across his social media channels, encouraging fans to engage with him.
Prior to Coronavirus affecting virtually the whole planet, Ward was able to complete several tests aboard his Kawasaki and his this to report…
“I had my first Superbike outing at Chuckwalla a few weeks ago. I settled in pretty much straight away, using Dave (Anthony’s) set-up. We made a few changes like seat-unit and after a few sessions I felt really good. I was going as quick as I had on the Superstock bike and that was just on a track day. I then did a club race at Chuckwalla where I went really well. Made three- or four-hole shots against a lot of the MotoAmerica guys. I finished three second places. As far as the MotoAmerica test goes it was pretty poor conditions for both days. I never really got any full wet or dry track time as it was pretty mixed. The Tuesday gave me the chance to do some proper wet weather riding which was good as I haven’t ridden a lot in the rain. There were no major issues. I’m lucky enough to have the K-Tech Suspension guys running out of my truck this year so I have the technicians on hand which is great. As the year progresses it should really help having them so close. The Wednesday of the test it wasn’t dry enough for slicks or wet enough for wets, so everybody was just sat around waiting. It got to lunch time and we had started to pack up, as Dave was racing at Daytona, and the sun came out, so we lost a bit of time. It would have been nice to spin some dry laps, but it is what it is. Looking ahead to MotoAmerica round one, obviously right now the message is for everyone to follow the guidelines and stay safe but when we do get the green light, I am really confident. I have no expectations for what my second year will be. I am a lot more comfortable on the bike and am going into it open minded. I can’t wait to get going but until we are back in the paddock, stay safe everyone and see you all soon!”
