achieved together this season is incredible ; I ’ m looking forward to a full off-season on my bike with Marc and the entire team to make further advances in 2023 .”
Nathalie Fase ( F & H Kawasaki team manager ); “ So far we can look back on a great first MX2 season together with Kevin ; we have enjoyed many successes , including podiums , lead laps , holeshots and many top-five finishes . We currently occupy fourth place in the world championship which is great and we look forward to our extended partnership with Kevin into the 2023 season , which will also be his final year in MX2 . We are confident that we will be able to make further big steps together this winter and make a serious bid for the world title together next year . That is the ultimate goal . All the ingredients are in place and that ’ s what we go for !”
Steve Guttridge ( Kawasaki Motors Europe Race Planning Manager ); “ It ’ s great news that Kevin will continue with our F & H Kawasaki Racing Team , moving into his final season in the MX2 World Championship with everything in place to challenge for the title . The way he has gelled with the KX250 and immediately displaying such good results at the highest level of competition is testament to the overall potential of the bike and , noting that for 2023 we again have an upgraded new KX250 model , I ’ m sure the combination of our bike together with Kevin ’ s undeniable talent will result in even more podium successes next season .”
