Kawasaki pay tribute to Bud Racing’s SÌ©bastien DassÌ©
S̩bastien Dass̩, co-owner of the Bud Racing Kawasaki Team, sadly passed away last week and was buried yesterday at a ceremony attended by many riders and members of the motocross industry.

The Bud Racing Team has been involved in the sport for more than ten years, and has achieved many significant results in both the French, European and World Championships, including the MX2 podium of Gautier Paulin (2009), the European title of Brian Moreau last year and the French titles of Livia Lancelot, David Herbreteau, Valentin Teillet, Dylan Ferrandis, Maxime Desprey and Xavier Boog.

Since their debut in 2007 with Marvin Musquin the team has been supported by Kawasaki and in recent years has represented the brand in the European and French championships.

The long and rich history of the team started in 1995 when Stephane and S̩bastien Dass̩ created Bud Racing and start working on engine and suspension development.

Each brother was racing motocross, but unfortunately SÌ©bastien suffered a bad crash whilst practicing in 1998; a paraplegic, he then, together with his brother, put all his energy into the development of Bud Racing. Well-known as one of the best suspension technicians in France, SÌ©bastien worked with many top riders through the years and was with his brother a key piece in the development of the company and the team.

His condition suddenly deteriorated last week, and at 37 years old this long-time member of the Kawasaki family tragically passed away. Kawasaki Motors Europe wished to thank SÌ©bastien for the journey, his commitment to the brand and to the sport of Motocross in general, and expresses its sincere condolences to Stephane, the team, his family and friends for their loss.
