Team Honda Riders To Contest The Suzuka 8 Hour


Team Honda Racing riders Jamie Stauffer, Josh Hook and Troy Herfoss will contest the 2014 Suzuka 8 Hour World Endurance race in Japan later this month.

Honda's three Australian riders will take a break from their assault on the 2014 Australasian Superbike Championship to contest one of the world's premier motorcycle endurance events, which will be raced on 27 July.

Two-time Australian Superbike Champion Jamie Stauffer and former Australian Supersport Champion Troy Herfoss will partner at Suzuka for the Dream RT Sakurai Honda team, while Josh Hook will ride for rival team Idemitsu Honda Team Asia.

All three will ride Honda CBR1000RR Fireblades.

"Suzuka is one of the most iconic races on the calendar and it's long been an event that the very best riders want to win, and I'm no different," Jamie Stauffer said. "I've had a couple of goes and done okay, but I would really like to win it, so like previous years I will be trying as hard as I can for the win."

Josh Hook, who had his first experience of the ultra-fast Japanese track last year, is equally keen to take the event on again.

"It'll be strange racing against my regular teammates Jamie and Troy, but also a challenge, I really want to beat them!" Hook said. "As I learned last year, it's a very long race and experience is everything, so I feel I am much better equipped this year for a good result," Josh Hook admitted.

Troy Herfoss, new to Team Honda Racing in Australia for the 2014 season, will be making his Suzuka 8 Hour debut.

"The boys have been talking the race up for a while now, so I'm pretty keen to get to our first test session to find out," Troy Herfoss admitted. "Thanks to Honda for the opportunity, I can't wait."

Stauffer, Hook and Herfoss will undertake two test sessions at Suzuka this month prior to the race.
