 A whole host of Kawasaki riders have signed up for this year's HAWK International on February 26th. French star Gautier Paulin will be appearing on the Kawasaki Racing Team machine competing in his first year and season in the MX1 World Championship. Gautier has scored several GP podiums in the MX2 class and was brilliant when riding a 450cc machine at the MX of Nations, he is looking forward to the new challenge that MX1 will provide him. One of the world's top up and coming riders he is sure to put on a great appearance at the HAWK International this year.

 His team-mate Xavier Boog will also be joining him at the event in February, the French MX1 star finished the season on a high last year with his first ever podium at the final round of the GP's in Germany and winning the Strasbourg Supercross event in December.

 Race Secretary Gary Ford said "We're really pleased to have signed two of the best French riders for the HAWK International and considering there is a French International on the same day this is a big scoop for the HIMX team."

 Adding to the Kawasaki line-up will be the strong looking Maxxis Henderson LPE Kawasaki team consisting of top British rider Martin Barr, the Ulsterman is looking in fine form on the Kawasaki and with Brad Anderson now having left for Australia, Martin is eager to gain the number one spot in the British Championship and will be hoping for a good showing at Hawkstone. He will be joined by his team-mate and local man to Hawkstone Park Ray Rowson, rounding out the team will be Connor Walkley.

 Lanes Kawasaki have entered riders Sunny Thompson and also Dutch International star Marc de Reuver, de Reuver will be making his debut season in the British Championship and is keen to start his season on a high note at the Hawk International.
