Nori Haga Joins Team Kagayama To Race Suzuki GSX-600

Posted:

Team KAGAYAMA has announced its 2015 plans that will see former World Superbike rider Nori Haga contest the FIM Asia Road Race Championship (ARRC) aboard Suzuki‰Ûªs GSX-R600 Supersport machine.

Haga, who scored 43 World Superbike race victories, has raced with Team KAGAYAMA in the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hours for the last two years, but now joins team owner Yukio Kagayama in his newly-formed team in the ARRC. Team KAGAYAMA Suzuki Asia will run full time in the ARRC, with Haga and a second rider who will be announced shortly.

The team has also revealed that the rider selection of the Suzuki Asia Challenge is in progress, with announcement of the riders at the Official test scheduled at Sepang in Malaysia on April 1-2nd. The Suzuki Asia Challenge is a new category in the ARRC, with a single platform of Suzuki FU150s. It is a rider development program for young Asian riders to eventually progress into MotoGP䋢; under the management and guidance of Kagayama.

‰ÛÏThis will be a new challenge for me." Kagayama said. "I have raced for Team KAGAYAMA in the Suzuka 8 Hours for the past two years and now they have offered me a full-season ride in the Asia Road Racing Championship; an offer I accepted with my upmost pleasure.

"It will be a new challenge for the team and myself, but my long-time experience in the World Championship should benefit the both of us. I‰Ûªve never raced a 600cc bike before in my life, so everything is fresh for me; and I am looking forward to it.

"I hope I can live-up to Yukio‰Ûªs expectations and hope to win races with the team.‰Û
