A total of 12 Kawasaki riders will be running at the test. These include Kawasaki World Superbike team riders Tom Sykes, Joan Lascorz, and Chris Vermeulen (who is still recovering from major reconstructive knee surgery). Former World Supersport stalwart (and now official Kawasaki test rider) Katsuaki Fujiwara, Kawasaki All-Japan Superbike JSB 1000 rider (and long-time Kawasaki racer) Akira Yanagawa, and Paul Bird Motorsports-sponsored (public) road racer Stuart Easton will also be astride superbikes, along with newly signed Pedercini Kawasaki rider Robby Rolfo. Former MotoGP rider Gabor Talmacsi will be riding with the Pedercini squad as part of a tryout for a World Superbike ride after failing to secure funding that would enable him to stay in MotoGP. Pedercini’s World Superstock riders Bryan Staring (former Australian Supersport champion and ASBK contender), Marco Bussolotti and Leandro Mercado (former AMA racer) will also be present to dial in their Superstock-spec machines, and the team will be giving a tryout for Czech rider Michal Salac.
