Podium For Guarnoni And New Ninja ZX-10R In Superstock

After only two rounds of the 2016 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup the all-new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R took its first podium finish in the hands of Frenchman Jeremy Guarnoni (Pedercini Racing Kawasaki) at Assen. Guarnoni was second, for what was his 12th career Superstock top three finish.

After two attempted race starts the third and final one developed into a nine lap race. Guarnoni led the chasing group behind the eventual race winner at the right moment and scored 20 important points. After an unlucky no-score in the first race in Aragon two weeks ago Guarnoni has risen to fourth in the championship, with a seven rounds to go.

MTM / HS Kawasaki rider and local competitor at Assen Wayne Tessels was next best Kawasaki finisher at Assen, in seventh place. His British team-mate Gregg Black was one place behind.

Rob Hartog (Team Hartog Jenik Against Cancer Kawasaki) was tenth, placing four Kawasaki Ninja machines in the top ten despite a sometimes-difficult weekend for all, due to weather factors and red flag stoppages.
Bryan Staring (Agro-on Benjan Kawasaki) opted for what turned out to be the wrong tyre choice and finished his race 19th, one place behind his team-mate David McFadden.

The next Superstock round for the new Ninja ZX-10R comes along at Imola, Italy, with raceday on Sunday May 1.

Jeremy Guarnoni stated:
“I am really happy for this race because I had some difficult moments in Motorland Aragon and earlier this weekend. We made a great job and the bike worked well. I had a difficult start but I think if I had started near the front I could have fought with Raffaele De Rosa for the win. I am happy for Kawasaki and Team Pedercini because they work so hard and never give up. Nine laps was a sprint so you have to be very aggressive and pass as quickly as possible.”
