Natalotto Wins 22-2023 Competition Bike Championship
Daniel Natalotta had a banner year winning Friday’s Can-Am Competition Bike Championship at Perth Motorplex, and Rider of the Year!
This was his first season on a brand-new Kawasaki ZX-10R equipped with bolt-on products from Brock’s Performance.
“We basically used bolt-on parts and took this brand new stock motorcycle to compete with the big guns of the class. The motorcycle’s performance was strong and consistent all season long and it showed in our performance,” said Natalotta.
The first two events went well with back-to-back runner-up finishes, however, in the next three events the bike really showed its strength top qualifying & winning those events.
Round six he took a semi-final finish, however shortly after that he had the highlight of his season winning his first Gold Tree trophy at the 52nd Western Nationals!
Round seven was another runner-up with a top qualifier. And the final round of the season was unfortunately rained out. However Natalotto went into the final with a 150 point lead over the class, and his championship was sealed.
“Winning the championship is a dream, but what will really make this year memorable was winning ‘Rider of the Year’! This is a huge honor as it spans all three motorcycle classes,” stated Natalotto.
“This was by far our most successful season since claiming ‘Rookie Rider of the Year’ back in 2009. I have to dedicate all this success to my beautiful partner Natasha whose unconditional love and support has enabled me to achieve all of this.”
Next season Natasha will ride her Yamaha R1, and Natalotto plans on returning the favor by supporting her as crew & coach.
