Rumour: Jean-Jacques Luisetti to make a return to the GP paddock?
For a number of years, Jean-Jacques Luisetti was a regular in the Grand Prix paddock as he was the team manager of the CLS-Kawasaki effort in the MX2 World Championship. Luisetti knows what it feels like to be involved in GP wins and championship battles having worked with many top riders.
When Factory Kawasaki decided to pull out of supporting the MX2 World Championship, the CLS-Kawasaki had no other choice than to close their doors. Luisetti was back in the paddock last year with the BOS-GP team but that team is no longer in the paddock.
Luisetti now runs a Kawasaki dealer shop in France with his son called “Superbike”, and it’s thought he’s keen on returning to the GP paddock to run his own team once again. Rumours suggest it’s not yet sure if he’ll be back in 2021 or the 2022 season but that he’d like to run his own team in the MX2 World Championship once again and this would obviously be good news for the paddock – we need as many teams as possible.
In a recent press release, Luisetti stated, “We won’t hide the idea of running a team runs in our heads”. The brand isn’t yet sure but it’s thought Luisetti would want to run Kawasaki if it’s possible as he still has a love for the brand.
We’ll keep you up to date as and when we hear more.
