Molyneux switches to Kawasaki power for 2010 IOMTT

1 Mins read

Sidecar ace Dave Molyneux has announced he will be competing the 2010 TT using the impressive Kawasaki ZX-6R road bike engine.

The 46 Year-old Manxman has 14 TT wins under his belt already and is not planning to stop any time soon.

“I've been looking at the development of the Ninja ZX-6R for some time. This year's engine has all the features that I think will make it a race winner in the DMR sidecar chassis that I design and manufacture”, declared Molyneux.

“Added to that, I have never won a TT using Kawasaki power, so there is a lot of motivation in the team to secure an historic victory at next year's TT”.

Already looking forward to 2010, Molyneux has been in contact with Kawasaki tuning expert Nick Morgan.

“On the TT course we are at full throttle for over 70% of the lap, that's more than twice the amount the boys on the solo bikes use, but with double the weight. I've got a great team around me and the TT organisers are always incredibly supportive. Together with my passenger Gary, we will all do our utmost to get on the top step of the podium at next year's event”.

Racing Coordinator for KMUK, Ross Burridge was delighted with the news: “It's been some time since KMUK supported a sidecar effort at the TT. To be associated with such a successful competitor – and to be focusing on a podium or even possible victory – is a really exciting prospect for TT fans the world over.”
