With a long history with Honda, Motologic owner and Team Honda Racing team principal, Paul Free is pleased to be bringing such a strong rider line-up to the 2014 field.
‰ÛÏI couldn't be happier with what we have put together as a team package, our rider line up is going to be as strong as you could ever ask for and the new CBR1000RR SP will be an awesome motorcycle to work with." Free stated.
‰ÛÏWe have a two day test on this week at Phillip Island on Pirelli tyres before we compete at the WSBK event in just over a week which I am really looking forward to. The Swann Series will be something new and challenging for us as a team as we have not competed at these events before.
"I am sure we will all get our heads around the program and format quickly and have a very successful season," he added.
Thrilled to be returning to the Honda family, Maxwell is looking forward to podium results in 2014.
‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to be coming home to Honda, I have a long history with the manufacturer and I have experienced a lot of success with them in the past,‰Û
