Rider Line-up
PBM Kawasaki Pedigree

Paul Bird Motorsport (PBM) returned to the MCE British Superbike Championship from the world stage in 2012 and added the 2012 crown to their previous two consecutive MCE BSB title victories with the late Steve Hislop and Shane 'Shakey' Byrne from 2002 and 2003.

The team have one of the strongest pedigrees in the British paddock and led by Team Owner Paul Bird they have secured championship wins in both the British Superbike, Supersport and formally the British 250cc class.

The team had a strong start to their 2012 season with Shakey a proven winner and he returned from a shoulder injury sustained at Cadwell Park at the opening round of the Showdown at Assen to win again. A triple win at the season final at Brands Hatch saw him celebrate a record-equalling third title and after missing out to Alex Lowes in 2013 Shakey was back for more in 2014. Byrne fought all season long with Ryuichi Kiyonari for the fourth title, celebrating the record-breaking crown in front of his home crowd.

Byrne returns in his strives for five titles whilst Easton returns for the 2015 season.

The plan was always to run Shakey and Stuart in MCE BSB this season and as both wanted to ride for us again, it was fairly straightforward. We've proved over the years what a successful package we have, so none of us saw the need to change things. We don't plan on relinquishing our number one plate. We are more determined than ever to win the title again this season.
