Australia WSBK: Waters on Yosh Suzuki

2011 World Superbike

Team Suzuki’s Josh Waters has signed to race for the Yoshimura Racing Team at the opening round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island in Australia.

Yoshimura Japan President Fujio Yoshimura hand-picked the 2009 Australian Superbike Champion to represent the team on Feb. 25-27.

Fujio Yoshimura says: "We are extremely excited to have Josh on board. He is a very talented rider and we look forward to seeing what he can do at his home track."

Perry Morison, General Manager, Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia was equally-excited about the Yosh opportunity for the Suzuki Superbike Young Gun.

Perry Morison says: "We’re really happy that the Yoshimura Racing Team has asked Josh to race at the Phillip Island World Superbike round. The 2010 season was a challenging one for Josh, but he showed what he is capable of by returning from injury to take a race win at the MotoGP Superbike support race. His opportunity with Yoshimura now lets him showcase his talent on the world stage and I can’t wait to see him race."

In addition to his involvement with the Yoshimura Racing Team, Waters will continue as part of Team Suzuki competing in selected Australian Superbike rounds.
