BSB: Ray to wildcard in Japanese Superbike finale

1 of 1

Bradley Ray will be back in race action this weekend as he joins the Yoshimura Suzuki MOTUL Racing squad in final round of the Japanese Superbike series at Suzuka.

Ray impressed the Yoshimura squad in a private test earlier this year, earning himself a ride with the factory effort at the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hour, where the young gun further showed his potential as he helped the team fight back to a top ten finish after a crash earlier in the race.

Having already penned a deal to remain with Buildbase Suzuki in BSB for 2019, he will now join regular Yoshimura Suzuki MOTUL Racing riders in a wildcard performance in the final round of the All Japan Road Race series in Japan.

“I’d like to thank Yoshimura Suzuki MOTUL Racing and Hawk Racing for giving me this amazing opportunity to take part in the last round of the All Japan Championship!” Ray said.

“It’s going to be very exciting and I’m looking forward to racing around Suzuka circuit again.

“I hope that the weather is nice and I hope I can do a good job for the team to say thank you for giving me the chance.”
