Backlund to join Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki for 2016 MCE BSB campaign
The Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki team wasted no time in making their announcement at Motorcycle Live today; declaring to the gathered crowd that Filip Backlund will join the team in their 2016 MCE BSB campaign.
He will join Luke Mossey, who will stay with the team in 2016, on the all new Kawasaki ZX-10R. Backlund completed his first full campaign in 2015 with a best result of eighth at Snetterton and will be hoping to push for more in his second year.
The Swedish contender said: "Our goal is to be consistently inside the top ten but also to fight for top six positions. I will also be very honest and say that I'm a racer and I always race to win, that's my main goal so we will work hard to be able to reach those top spots."
When asked about his expectations of the all new ZX-10R he said: "It seems just by looking at the recent tests from the World Superbike and GBmoto teams that it's a very strong package and has some good improvements, so I'm really excited!"
