BENNETS BRITISH Superbike front-runner Bradley Ray has been confirmed in the Yoshimura Suzuki squad for this year’s Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race. 

The British youngster tested with the team earlier this month and will partner Sylvain Guintoli, Takuya Tsuda and Kazuki Watanabe.

“I am so honoured and privileged to be invited by the Yoshimura Suzuki MOTUL Racing Team to take part in the famous Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race. This will be my first time taking part in the event and I am extremely excited,” said Ray.

“I’m looking forward to teaming up with Sylvain Guintoli, Takuya Tsuda and Kazuki Watanabe as they have all done the Suzuka 8 Hours before and have experience in the Yoshimura Suzuki team. We will all be pushing hard as a team to get on the top step of the podium this year.”

We'll be watching in the wee small hours next month, and cheering him on for sure...
