Team Suzuki’s Australian Supersport rider Brodie Waters is set to race in the final three rounds of the British Supersport Championship, with backing from Hampshire Motorcycles Racing Team. There’s also a long-term plan of moving to the UK to contest the 2013 series.
The 20-year-old from Mildura, Victoria, and younger brother of Suzuki’s Australian Superbike contender Josh Waters, will join the team for the 10th round of the series at Assen on September 21-23.
Waters will ride a GSX-R600 prepared and developed by Hampshire Motorcycles in conjunction with technical tuning expert Marc Hoegee after his commitments to the Australian Superbike Championship finish next weekend.
He is in contention to win the Australian series, just half-a-point off the lead following his double victory at Phillip Island a fortnight ago.
Waters said, “I’m very excited about heading over and I am looking forward to riding some European circuits for the first time.
“Assen will be an exciting circuit for everyone as this is the first time British Superbikes is racing on this circuit, so it will put all riders on an even playing field.”
Dave Tyson from Hampshire Motorcycles said, “Bringing someone of Brodie’s ability to the BSB shows our intentions for the rest of this season and 2013.
“I am sure with his knowledge of the GSX-R600 Suzuki out in Australia he will also bring experience to the team. This will bring the Suzuki back to the front of the British Supersport Championship it won in 2011 and with Assen being a new circuit to most riders; no one has an advantage of circuit knowledge.”
