Joe is very happy with his enthusiastic start to the season and with the way his Kawasaki bike fitted with EBC X-Series brake disc rotors and GPFA sintered road racing brake pads performed. He’s looking very much forward to the next championship race that takes place over the Bank Holiday Weekend of 4th – 6th May at Oulton Park.
