Bennetts British Superbike star Dan Linfoot has joined Josh Waters and Nobu Aoki in the MotoMap SWAT Suzuka Eight-Hours team.
Linfoot, who races for the Santander TAG team domestically, is in Japan now testing with the squad and will fly out for the event following the fifth BSB round at Snetterton in July.
“I am very happy to be joining MotoMap SWAT for the 2019 Suzuka Eight-Hours race, after experiencing this event for the last two years I am really looking forward to returning and teaming up with Nobu and Josh for the race,” said Linfoot.
“I would like to thank everyone who is involved for the opportunity to join them and I am very excited.”
The trio have their sights set on taking victory in the Superstock class, which the team have entered thanks to valued support from MotoMap and Suzuki Australia, after a strong showing in 2018 where the outfit claimed fourth place in class.
