Yoshimura Suzuki WSBK On-Hold Till Monza

The first World Superbike victims of the current situation in Europe, which has been caused by the volcano eruption in Iceland and the subsequent transport chaos, are the Yoshimura Suzuki Racing Team, who have opted to put on hold their WSB debut this weekend at Assen.

The legendary Japanese motorcycle racing parts and tuning company, who have penciled in three races in this year’s WSBK championship as a possible prelude to an all-out attack in 2011, were due to race the fourth round in the Netherlands with four-time WSB winner Yukio Kagayama (in the photo with Nori Haga) on board.

The Yoshimura Suzuki World SBK Racing Team have been unable to get their Suzuki GSX-R1000 and accompanying race material to the Dutch Assen circuit in time for this weekend’s race.

As a result Yoshimura are now working to make a possible debut at the Monza round in two weeks time.
