Buildbase Suzuki’s Bradley Ray feels like some big setup steps forward were taken at Knockhill and he goes into this weekend’s Snetterton Bennetts British Superbike clash feeling more confident.
The youngster has struggled with GSX-R1000’s front end all season but hopes now he can begin to emulate some of the successes of 2018.
“We made a big improvement at Knockhill, which was a long-time coming after lots of little steps earlier in the season, and now I feel like I have the confidence to push harder and get closer to the front,” said Ray.
“I’m feeling good with the bike, and we know what we can do when the pieces all come together. We were on pole last year, the potential’s there, so the aim is to keep momentum going, and if we can come away with two top sixes as a minium I’ll feel like we’ve really turned a corner.”
Ray will head to the Suzuka Eight-Hours after Sunday’s action to team up with Tommy Bridewell in the S-Pulse Suzuki team.
