Buildbase Suzuki’s Bradley Ray is back to Bennetts British Superbike work this weekend after a top-ten placing at the 2019 Suzuka Eight-Hours and is hoping it will be the turning point in his season.

The youngster has struggled with his GSX-R1000 all year with corner entry and exit the main focus of setup efforts, and some changes - although gradual - have borne fruit.

“We’ve got six rounds now to try and turn the season around and get some good results on the board,” said Ray.

“We’ve been working this year to solve a couple of issues: trying to tame the power delivery on corner exit and improve front-end feel on the way into faster corners, but everyone’s kept working hard and the changes we’ve been making have steadily brought about improvements.

“We’ll keep working in the same way, starting with FP1 this weekend, and try and have an enjoyable second half of the year.”
