LKQ Euro Car Parts, the UK’s leading automotive parts distributor, has extended its title partnership with Kawasaki for the next Bennetts British Superbike Championship – the leading road racing superbike championship in the UK.
The partnership known as Team LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki has also announced it has re-signed rider Storm, Stacey, for the 2022 season. The 18-year-old enters his fourth consecutive season with the Sheffield-based team.
Storm Stacey is the youngest rider in the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship and narrowly missed out on becoming the youngest debutant in 2020 by a matter of weeks following the delayed season.
Last year the Eccleshall-based teenager claimed a career-best finish of sixth place at Donington Park; in addition to also securing a first front row start in the second race of the weekend at the penultimate round.
Team LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki Owner Brent Gladwin commented:
“I am extremely pleased and excited to extend our agreements with both Storm and LKQ Euro Car Parts. As Storm rolls into our fourth season together, and his third in BSB, he will still only be 18 years old; this is unprecedented in Superbike racing. We have great ambitions for the Superbike team!”
Storm Stacey said:
“I am excited to get stuck into some good battles and the aim is to be consistently in the top ten – that has to be the goal for the 2022 season.
I would like to thank LKQ Euro Car Parts for their continued support, STAUFF, all of our team partners, my personal sponsor Autotech Academy and of course Brent. I have been training harder than ever, so I can’t wait to get the racing back underway and see all the fans at the track again. Bring it on!”
Helen Robinson, corporate communications director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said:
“We are thrilled to be extending our partnership with Kawasaki for a third year and we are looking forward to supporting such an emerging talent as Storm.
Being part of this well-established team comes from our ongoing commitment and passion to support and engage with the wider Motorsport!”
