Kawasaki legends Nick Morgan and Mark Smith-Halvorsen will be joining forces in 2021 to give their sons (both named Max) a shot in the Pirelli National Superstock divisions alongside David Shoubridge and Cameron Dawson.
Max Morgan will step up to Superstock 1000 with Shoubridge while Max Smith-Halvorsen will enter the 600 class and Cameron Dawson the Junior Supersport category.
The riders will be utilising Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR, Ninja 636 and 400 machinery respectively, all expertly prepared in the MSS Performance workshops by Nick Morgan and his team.
Morgan ran Kawasaki’s official BSB team (MSS) a role later taken by Smith-Halvorsen who campaigned his JG Speedfit team to the front of the series with riders including Leon Haslam. The experienced duo are now looking to support their Max’s in a less pressured situation to continue their racing career.
Morgan said: “I will help Mark to develop – he was always over-rated. At least I know I can leave the hair-dryer style ‘rider tune-ups’ to him. I plan to be the good guy.”
Smith-Halvorsen added: “I have a great admiration and respect for Nick, while I accept that he will fleece me and take all the credit for whatever we achieve.”
