After a fantastic 2015 season the Portsmouth based WPS Formula One British sidecar champions of driver Ricky Stevens from Havant and passenger Ryan Charlwood from Dover made their announcement for the 2016 season at the National Exhibition centre in Birmingham on the first day of the Motorcycle live show.
After a lot of hard work taking place since the end of the season in October the team will again be linking in with a British Superbike team - Quattro Plant - and will be known as "Quattro Cool Kawasaki, with the main sponsors being Quattro Plant and Cool Milk.
The Bournemouth based Quattro Kawasaki Superbike team also announced their new line up at the same time in the form of riders Luke Mossey and Filip Backlund.
As in the 2015 season the team will have the same team clothing and livery on their machines just as they did with the Be/Wiser livery they displayed on the championship winning sidecar. Introducing the new team at the Kawasaki stand a large crowd gathered and listened to Ricky and Ryan being interviewed. Ricky said "It's another great opportunity for the team to move forward again with another great partnership with a top supebike team." Ryan added "2016 will be another exciting time for me and Ricky and the whole team. We can't wait to get started."
Pete Extance the team owner of the Quattro superbike team said. "I wouldn't have thought of getting involved with a sidecar team but over the last few years the profile has risen with the races at the British Superbike meetings, and hopefully more people will stay to watch them at the end of the meetings. Joining up with Ricky and Ryan will be a great addition to the team. I couldn't have asked for better pair so I'll be looking forward to seeing more trophies in the cabinet.
