Waters returns to Suzuki in 2014 MCE BSB

Tuesday, November 05 2013

Double Australian Superbike champion Josh Waters will return to the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship in 2014 alongside John Hopkins, as he completes an all-international line up for the Tyco Suzuki team.

Waters returns to Suzuki having celebrated two domestic Superbike Championship titles for them in Australia and was also part of the podium-finishing Yoshimura Suzuki team at the prestigious Suzuka Eight Hour race last year. Waters previously raced for seven seasons with Suzuki in Australia before making his debut in MCE BSB this year, scoring his best result of the year at the season finale at Brands Hatch with a fourth place.

Waters said: "I obviously wanted to stay in the championship next season and to join the Tyco Suzuki team is a great opportunity for me. I have spent a lot of time in my career racing Suzukis and I have had some great years with them back home in Australia with a lot of success. I am looking forward to next year and getting back onboard the GSX-R1000 so I can't wait to start testing with the team in the New Year so we are ready for the start of the new season. The team are really cool and being team-mates with John Hopkins is going to be really positive too so I am excited about next season already."

Team Manager Philip Neill concluded: "It's great to be able to announce our final 2014 BSB signing, leaving us to concentrate on the important task of further developing the GSX-R1000 Superbike in readiness for testing in the New Year. Josh really is the ideal candidate to join us, having spent seven years racing GSX-R machinery in Australia, in addition to two very successful outings at the Suzuka 8-Hour with Yoshimura Suzuki. I have known Josh since 2009 and have looked at a number of options to bring him to BSB every year. Now that we finally have the opportunity to work together, I'd like to formally welcome him. I'm confident we haven't seen the best of Josh and everyone at Tyco Suzuki will be working hard to ensure he has the tools to show what he is capable of in 2014."
