And on to Bapsfontein for Team Green

Pepson Plastics Kawasaki ready to race through the cosmos

Pepson Plastics Kawasaki Factory Racing with Michelin, Motul, Bikewise and Scottish Cables plans to continue its impressive 2024 Cross Country Motorcycle season with another power outing at the third round GXCC Gauteng championship through the cosmos flowers of Bapsfontein on Saturday 20 April.

“We’re looking forward to racing at Bapsfontein,” Pepson Plastics Kawasaki team principal Ian Pepper confirmed. “The team has made a very good start to the season, even if some of our Pepson Plastics Kawasaki riders have been a little unlucky so far this year. So we hope for a clean run across the board this weekend.”

The team has a strong OR1 line-up. 2023 GXCC class champion Jaycee Nienaber leads a Pepson Plastics Kawasaki KX 450 X trio, with quick D’artagnan Lobjoit and the ever-improving Wade Den as his wingmen. Wian Wentzel is itching to bounce back with a gold medal aboard his Team Green KX 250 X, while Cameron Becker is hot off a fine OR3 third place last time.

He will be joined by Ryan Angilie, who is back and looking for an OR3 podium after missing the last race following an emergency appendectomy in the early hours of that same morning. OR3 Pro lad Jayden Boyce will be looking to build on his normal holeshot to bring it home on podium. And young Jake Pretorius leads the championship way as he chases another OR4 win.

Pepson Plastics Kawasaki’s Masters legend Pieter Holl fully intends continuing his double-championship winning streak amidst the Bapsfontein autumn cosmos. He will be joined by Lee Thompson riding Seniors this weekend, while Geoff Den is after more Vets success too. Pepson Plastics Kawasaki 85cc Junior lads Clayton and Dylan Human will race at the other end of the Team Green age spectrum.

“Bapsfontein will still be colourful with all that cosmos, which hopefully means it will also be damp and muddy enough for it not to be too dusty,” Iain Pepper concluded. “Either way, Pepson Plastics Kawasaki Factory Racing with Michelin, Motul, Bikewise and Scottish Cables is looking forward to impress with another good result there this weekend. Good luck team, bring it on!”

Pepson Plastics Kawasaki races with Michelin tyres, Motul lubricants, Scottish Cables, Bikewise accessories and Arai helmets.
