Ash De Bakker Racing #76 News and Events Blog



If this isn't the most exciting news ever I don't know what is!!!!

I have been absolutely dying to share with you all that I am officially a KAWASAKI SUPPORTED RIDER!!!!!(EEEEKKKKK!!!!!! - excited squealing) I am absolutely chuffed and privileged to have the support of Kawasaki Motors Australia.

I fell in love with motorcycling on board a Kawasaki Ninja 300 and clocked up just over 16,000 kms in a year. That first bike took me to amazing places and introduced me to the world of motorcycling I had no idea existed. It was onboard my Kaw...asaki Ninja that I fell in love with the track... little did I know that life as I knew it was about to change forever!

Having the support of Kawasaki means the world to me. I simply cannot race without support. Sponsorship for any rider let alone 'little ol me' is a really, really big deal and I am so grateful to all my sponsors.

Those who know me, know that I am a passionate advocate of women in motor sport. One day I hope that we will see more young women out there. I cant help but think of the bigger picture as I write this post (I may be a bit emotional - so bear with me here:). Having the support of Kawasaki is a big deal not just for me but for women in our sport in general. It speaks volumes about Kawasaki's attitude to lady riders and the path we are on. We really can do this girls, its a matter of dedi/supported-rider-profiles/road-racing/ash-de-baker-ninja-zx-cation, support and just a bit of courage!!!
