Looking back at Season 2019
2019 was a short but good season for us. We managed to make new personal records and the bike was running strong the whole season.
The clutch settings are almost right, we had no break downs or problems this season wich is very good!
We aren’t sure that Kawazooka will race in 2020. The reason for this is that we are going to change the electronics to a stand alone ECU. And we will strenghten the engine even more.
Its not that we stop racing we are just working hard on improving Kawazooka!
Thanks to all my sponsors:

Looking back at Season 2018
This racing season had some up’s and downs.
Kawazooka ran this year faster than ever and also we managed to get the 60 ft down to 1.5.
We are very happy with that !
Some bad things also happened this season.
In Germany we had fire in the front of the bike.
That damage took us sleepless nights to repair it before the next race.
In Drachten we had huge wheelhop and suspension problems. So bad that the billet clutch basket broke. We did our best to repair it before the next race.
We found out that broken bits of metal is still in the engine. We had to take the whole engine out of the bike and we missed the last event because we were waiting on parts.
Now the winter is comming. We are dedicated to make Kawazooka a low 9 high 8 second bike for next season.
We already started building!
Thanks to all my sponsors:
Thanks to DHRA for the great events this year

Event 3 : 28-07-2017/30-07-2017 /// Fast Show Main Event 2017 (EDRS/DSPS) Drachten NL
Kawazooka is now extended with a Evil Swingarm and runs a Shinko Hook Up Dragrace tire. Also we did some engine work and changed the airshifter.
Because the whole setup was new for us and I dint had the opportunity to test the new setup before the race, we decided to just go to the race and see what happens.
It was actualy a test and tune for us but Kawazooka did great. We had zero problems with the bike and I decided to hit the throttle!
The result was a new personal best at the race of Fast Show Main Event 2017
