Szoke’s record book history with “Team Green” dates back to his first Superbike Championship in 1998 as the youngest racer to win a National Championship in Canadian History aboard a ZX-7. Szoke returned to Kawasaki in ‘06 which lead to a record breaking string of National Superbike and Sportbike Championships in 2006-2007-2008-2009 aboard the infamous 636, ZX6 and ZX10. Worldly sources were calling as Szoke was also invited to Valencia Spain in 2008 to ride the Moto GP ZX-RR, and filled in for injured AMA Superbike racer at Laguna Seca for Monster Energy Kawasaki.
Most recently Szoke earned the Superbike and Pro Sportbike National Championships in 2010 stretching his back to back consecutive championships to five. Owning and Managing his own team also earned him “Team of the Year”.
When asked about being back under the Kawasaki banner Szoke says “It feels really good to be back on a Kawi again. I have worked with the same crew in our championship seasons previous, so I am excited to be back. Kawasaki also has a new ZX10 model out so I can’t wait to ride and develop that.”

When asked about the new model for ‘11 Szoke replies, “I have spent a lot of my career developing motorcycles, and this one is no different. Kawasaki has a brand new model this year and it looks really (really) awesome. With the team that we have working with us, and my experience I don’t foresee any problems getting the new superbike up to speed.”
Competition Systems and Szoke plan on starting pre-season testing in March.
Stay posted for some more exciting news within the week, as Szoke will release a list of his new personal sponsors for 2011.
