So much to do – So much to see
There’s loads to do besides getting out and riding this summer and here is just a selection of what you could be doing - go on lets get out there!
The annual free World of Kawasaki event, held in celebration of all things Kawasaki is moving to the famous Donington Park circuit for the 2014 event which takes place on Sunday 6th July.
As a family focussed day out there will be opportunities to actually ride the famous GP circuit under the guidance of track day experts – Focused Events and a Motocross experience for riders who already have suitable off-road riding gear. Simply fancy trying out one of the current road machines? You can do that too, with their fleet of new Kawasaki’s on a dedicated road route outside the famous circuit wall.
Other attractions are diverse and plentiful according to Kawasaki Riders Club coordinator, Eleanor Berry who said “We sat down and tried to create an event with an even better mix of attractions than last year – it was hard but I think we’ve done it. There’s the Team Extreme stunt show and Maxxis drift car display as well as Kawasaki’s very own Lee Bowers and a Monster truck display all trying to raise the bar each time they perform for the crowds across the day.
We have two ride out opportunities, one with the help of our friends at BikeSafe and the other, a series of unique “Cruiser Ride outs” with the Vulcan Riders Association who will also have a display of their customised bikes in the paddock”.
“There’s going to be a display of Ninja bikes across the thirty years of their production with bikes supplied by Kawasaki fans themselves. We will also have some great classic bikes for people to see – some of which, will start evoking some great memories of yesteryear!
We realise that this event is a magnet for families and for the kids there is a special entertainment zone with face painting, a bouncy castle and puppet shows. There’s also no age restriction on the ever popular Kawasaki K-LAP feature so the entire family can see themselves racing with Tom Sykes and get a copy of the video to take home with them in the Kawasaki shop we are setting up at the event”.
