Going back to Z-Tech roots!

Some of you will know that before starting Z-Tech Control Systems, Michael Swinhoe started Z-Tech as ‘Z-Tech Dyno Systems’ – a company founded to follow Michael’s passion for motorbikes (more specifically the Kawasaki Z’s) with one of the very first mobile dyno tuning systems (a rolling road), built by Michael and friends.

They took the dyno to the Isle of Man TT race from 1996-2000, where they conducted power runs and tuning on motorbikes, specifically at the Suzuki stand – they even repaired the TT 750cc class winner’s bike in 1998 before his winning run!

Z-Tech Control Systems is now some 16 years old, built on foundation on being the gold standard, all about solving customer problems and building long-standing relationships.

Going back to our roots, Z-Tech are excited to announce the sponsorship of Lukasz Zuchowski, a very promising and worthy motorcycle racer who has completed in the British Motorcycle Racing Club at club level for the 2016 season.

Lukasz is a Bus Driver by trade, and has self-financed his racing. With Z-Tech support he will now move into the National Series for 2017, with the ultimate aim of competing in the all-Electric TT Zero in 2018 – a spearhead in electric vehicle development.

Michael Swinhoe said:

“Lukasz bought my own Kawasaki ZX10r to convert into his race bike and after hearing his story we discussed the possibility of sponsorship at the following Z-Tech Board meeting. He’s currently one of the only entrants to be totally self-funding, and the Z-Tech Board welcomed the idea to help him out – he came third in his championship, on his own, so definitely has the talent.”

“We need to get Lukasz through another year of traditional racing, then he will have enough experience to enter the all-electric Isle of Man TT – and we’ll spend the year looking at suitable electric motorbike manufacturers for the 2018 race.”

Z-Tech will be updating on progress throughout 2017. In the meantime, you can follow Lukasz on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/lukeboy78/?fref=ts

  • "The customer focus and flexibility of Z-Tech makes it easy for a water utility to deal with. When we have a large and complex programme to deliver, planning every detail can be a challenge. Working with Z-Tech means that we can maintain delivery, knowing that resources are available to pick up the loose ends."
