Webike Tati Team Trick Star, last season’s winners of the FIM Superstock World Cup, have moved up into the Formula EWC class. The Franco-Japanese team will be on the grid at the 24 Heures Motos on a Kawasaki with the black number plate background marking out EWC machines.

After five seasons in the Superstock class, Webike Tati Team Trick Star have made the leap to EWC. Having started the season in Superstock at the Bol d’Or last September, finishing 8th overall and 2nd in Superstock, the Franco-Japanese team, last season’s winners of the Superstock World Cup, are moving up into the premier Formula EWC class.

We decided to go for it even though we’re not quite on top of our bills yet,’ says team manager Patrick Enjolras. ‘Trick Star are providing us material support to move up into EWC and we’re also getting a little help from Kawasaki France. We’ll have to review our working style and tyre management strategy, and get quicker at tyre changes. We’re going in with the same technical crew and rider-line-up, and everyone’s very motivated about this year learning the ropes in EWC.

So Julien Enjolras, Kevin Denis and Osamu Deguchi will be taking to the track at the 24 Heures Motos on 20 April on a Kawasaki #4 bearing a black number plate background and white headlamp, the Formula EWC markers, for the very first time. Before then, Webike Tati Team Trick Star will begin winter testing at Almeria in Spain in mid-February.
