Suzuki and Halsall Racing join forces
Halsall Racing switch from Kawasaki to Suzuki for 2015
Suzuki GB management with Martin Halsall and Jack Valentine
SUZUKI GB have teamed up with Halsall Racing for the 2015 British Superbike season as they switch from Kawasaki to Suzuki GSX-R1000's with a two-rider line-up.
It was announced yesterday that TAS Racing had parted company with Suzuki allowing Halsall Racing to seize the opportunity of a Suzuki GSX-R powered team in BSB next season much to the delight of team manager Jack Valentine.
2015 GSX-R1000s have already been delivered to the Halsall Racing Team as their development programme starts with the assistance of Suzuki Motor Corporation. However, the two rider line-up is yet to be announced.
Team owner, Martin Halsall, said: "We entered into MCE BSB with clear objectives. We always intended to be here long-term, but our ultimate goal was to represent a manufacturer at the highest level.
"While our agreement with Suzuki meets that objective, this is really the beginning of a new future for us as a team. I would like to thank Suzuki for the faith they have put into everyone at Halsall Racing and look forward to the season ahead."
Having previously worked with Suzuki team manager Valentine explained that the deal was like 'coming home'.
"I know the team at Suzuki well and I also know what the GSX-R1000 is capable of", said Valentine. "We have a great team of engineers at Halsall Racing and with the support of Suzuki and the knowledge I can bring from my previous experience, I'm confident we can hit the ground running at the start of the season."
