Fans’ favourite Chris Walker will return to the British Superbike Championship for 2007 after signing for Rizla Suzuki.
The 34-year-old secured his ride by winning the Race of the Year at Mallory Park in Leicestershire on October 15 on the GSX-R1000 he will ride next season.
Walker said: “I think just about everybody knew how much I wanted the ride, it was number one on my wish list and I couldn’t be any happier than I am right now.” Quality bikes for sale: Click here.
