Buchan to race in Euro Superstock

Published: 30 June 2011

Danny Buchan will race a Go Eleven Kawasaki ZX-10R in European Superstock 1000cc at WSB meetings, starting in Brno, Czechoslovakia.

The young rider will also continue trying to win the UK National Superstock Championship for MSS Colchester Kawasaki - with just one date clash between the remaining races of the two series.

The Go Eleven team manager Dennis Sacchetti first saw Buchan at last year’s World Superbike round in Silverstone, where the Superstock 600 race supported the WSB regulars, and has been tracking his progress ever since.

The opportunity to race in the European series has come at a staggering speed for Buchan after his first foray with Team Green and MSS Colchester Kawasaki in Superstock 600 last year and a dream debut in the Superstock 1000cc class with an opening win, just a few months ago.

Buchan said, "It’s a really exciting opportunity to learn new tracks, work with a foreign crew and be part of the World Superbike series. I’ve never raced on a foreign circuit before so it will also be interesting to see how well we can do as I don’t want to go there and just wally around at the back. Obviously they are all new tracks but with Playstation, You Tube and a bit of determination, we should get the hang of it! Massive thanks to Nick for allowing me to do this hopefully I can do the squad and Team Green proud."

Team owner Nick Morgan added, "Danny is a talented lad and it’s flattering to all concerned that he’s been picked to ride in a WSB class so soon. Doing well is a double-edged sword as that’s obviously what we’re here for but your riders then get noticed and potentially poached! The good news is its all part of the Kawasaki family and Danny will still be concentrating on the Superstock series over here in the UK."
