Proving a highly popular event, the opening day on Saturday saw a Kawasaki ‘lap of honour’ featuring historic machines such as the 900 Z1, Z1300, Z1000Fl, Z750 Turbo and the latest Ninja H2 and H2R take to the track.

Giving fans trackside a chance to reminisce, Kork Ballington then took his incredible two-stroke KR500 for a lap of the course.

Other highlights included the competition to find the oldest Kawasaki in Germay, with the winner being a stunning 155B8 from 1963! Stunt rider Chris Rid wowed fans with his display of tricks, whilst fans could try their stunting prowess and have a go on a wheelie simulator. Visitors were also given the chance to ride every model from the current Kawasaki range before Rock ‘n’ Roll cover bad Say What brought Saturday night to a close.

Whilst Sunday was equally packed with Kawasaki themed attractions for visitors, heavy rain meant the organisers were forced to bring the event to a premature close. Kawasaki Days will return in 2016.
