Black Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki is one of the most feared and prolific race teams in motorcycle racing. Any doubters to the claim only have to open the door to the ‘PC’ facility in Corona, California and walk into reception. The first thing that comes into view is a line of race bikes. A long line. Almost one for the all the 29 AMA championships they have totalled in 25 years of existence; 2016 bringing the crew up to a quarter of a century setting new boundaries for technical excellence, performance and - ultimately – ‘delivery’. Walking past the Hondas (for two years) and then Kawasakis and watching the development through two-stroke, four-stroke, fuel injection, carbon, titanium, air forks, electronics, start devices; the march of Pro Circuit innovation as a technical specialist and tuner is matched by the heavy-weight roster of the athletes that saw the team as the essential stepping stone: McGrath, Pichon, Brown, Carmichael, Stewart, Pourcel, Villopoto, Langston, Townley, Wilson and many more. Behind the locked doors and workspace created, patrolled and controlled by owner and victory-addict Mitch Payton is a cosmopolitan squad of ten people and five riders hand-picked and then negotiating a relentless racing calendar that will involve seventeen supercross races, twelve ‘outdoor’ motocross rounds of the national series and other events like the Black Monster Cup and the annual Motocross of Nations (if one of the Pro Circuit riders is selected for their country).
