Further to the recent test, Ten-Kate Racing and Honda World Supersport chose to use K-Tech as there Suspension supplier for the 2016 World Supersport season with rider PJ Jacobsen.
After fighting to an excellent second place in the hard-fought 2015 championship, the 22-year-old American from Montgomery, New York, has used pre-season testing to compare three different suspension manufacturers available to the Honda Racing team run by Ten Kate Racing. After back-to-back tests with the options available, PJ felt confident with the K-Tech product compared to the other suspension options. Throughout the test PJ was consistently improving lap times using the K-Tech DDS PRO shock and DDS Front Fork cartridges and the team felt this is the best option for the coming season.
PJ Jacobsen: “It’s great to have the opportunity to race with Honda, Ten Kate and K-Tech. The goals for the season are high; I finished second in the championship last year, so the only thing left is to get the number one spot. It’s not going to be easy as there are a lot of competitive riders out there this year, but the key will be to be riding at the front, race in, race out. I intend to take every round as it comes though, starting at Phillip Island of course.”
Ken Summerton of K-Tech: “ We are really excited to be working with Ten Kate Racing as they are a high profile professional team with the same ambition to win races. We have also worked with PJ for many years within different teams so we have built a good relationship with him and an understanding of his suspension requirements. Ken continues: “Further to our positive testing in Spain using the latest K-Tech DDS products, PJ put in a lap record at Jerez on worn tyres, showing the potential of the collaboration and we are really excited for the first round.”
