Tom Sykes moves on from Kawasaki Puccetti Racing

WorldSBK Champion in 2013 riding a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, Tom Sykes, has concluded his term riding for the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team and the task of working to refine their technical and machine set up package.

During his tenure as the team’s WorldSBK entry for the early part of the 2023 season, Yorkshireman Sykes worked closely with technicians and engineers of the Italian team passing on valuable feedback and machine set up advice which they will use to mount a future attack on WorldSBK honours.

Team Principle, Manuel Puccetti, expressed his thanks to Sykes saying; “My team staff and sponsors were honoured to have Tom join us to start the season. As a former world champion and
multiple race winner, his insight has really taken our understanding of the Ninja to the next level. Now he leaves us, and we thank him for all his knowledge and for sharing so much information.”

Tom Sykes concluded; “I had no hesitation in joining the Kawasaki Puccetti team and helping them with the refinement of their Ninja ZX-10RR package. I hope all the data I helped them accumulate over testing and the first races of the season pushes them closer to winning races in the future”.
