JG SPEED­FIT KAWASAKI

2016 will be James El­li­son’s third year with the JG Speed­fit Kawasaki squad. The 35-year-old is happy with the team but he is hop­ing for a change of for­tune.

“I am des­per­ate to win this ti­tle and we can still do it,” he says. “That’s why I’ve stayed with the team. The only thing that has ever let us down are in­juries; it is never the bike or the team. They have stuck by me through the hard times and I feel that this is the team I can win with.”

A bro­ken leg in a hor­ror crash at Brands in 2014 and a smashed wrist at Thrux­ton last sea­son have de­stroyed his last two ti­tle chal­lenges but a third place fin­ish in last year’s ti­tle race epit­o­mises

Kennedy had a dif­fi­cult de­but year in BSB and with the com­pe­ti­tion not look­ing any less tough in 2016, it’s go­ing to be a sea­son that will de­fine his fu­ture in the se­ries.

A front-run­ner in su­pers­port, his tran­si­tion to BSB is well un­der­way – but just how ad­vanced it is re­mains to be seen. Fast but with the po­ten­tial for crashes along the way.
