Former Grand Prix racer and British Superbike Champion John Reynolds will make a return to competition at Snetterton tomorrow when he takes part in the Dunlop Radical UK Cup, racing an SR3 RS.
The Suzuki GB racing director, who had already put in several practice sessions and may have lightly scraped the front of one of the Tyco-liveried race cars, will have a Suzuki Hayabusa motor underneath him in the car which is capable of 0-60mph in 3.1s and can do a lap of the new Snetterton in 1'49.3s - which is slightly faster than a Superbike.
“I’m really excited about racing at Snetterton; the SR3 RS handles beautifully and my lap times are improving all the time. I’ve still got a mountain to climb and I don’t want to let the great team at Radical down, but it’s definitely the best car I’ve ever driven, a proper racing machine," he said.
