Former WorldSSP king Randy Krummenacher will join Gino Rea and Sheridan Morais at Wójcik Racing for the Endurance World Championship season opener atLe Mans this April.
The 31-year-old Swiss rider will make his World Endurance debut alongside his experienced teammates with the team aiming to start their fourth full season of endurance racing on a high note.
Last year Wójcik Racing Team fourth in the overall FIM EWC standings with podium finishes in the Bol d’Or and 12h of Estoril on the Yamaha R1.
I have some experience with the Yamaha R1 but I’ve never raced in endurance, so I’d like to thank the team for their trust,” said Krummenacher, who contests the 2021 WorldSSP series on an EAB Yamaha.
“I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Wójcik Racing Team which impressed me as a very professional squad with a good atmosphere. We’ve been in touch for some time but now with the change in the World Supersport calendar I’ll be able to race in Le Mans, which I think will also be a good preparation for the season for me.
“I’ve always liked the atmosphere of the 24 Heures Motos. Everything will be new for me but we have a great team, I have two very fast and experienced teammates in Gino and Sheridan, whom I both know very well, and I also really like the circuit and did well there in the past.
“The competition will be strong but I really think we can fight for a very good result. I’m also very happy to be making my FIM EWC debut as my dad raced in endurance when I was a small kid so it’s nice to come back to the paddock where I actually grew up. For now it’s only for Le Mans but we’ll see what happens in the future.”
