Tyco Suzuki has announced they’ve signed former MotoGP racer John Hopkins for the 2014 British Superbike championship season.
Hopkins took the 2013 season off from racing, as he recovered from injuries. The move to BSB makes sense, as Hopkins has experience there – he was runner-up to the title in 2011, losing out by only 6/1000ths-of-a-second.
Said Hopkins: ““I’m really excited to be coming back to British Superbike in 2014 and delighted to be joining Tyco Suzuki. It’s been a long year away from racing getting my body healthy … I feel better than I have done in a lot of years and I’m really excited to be getting back out on track … I really feel like I’ve got a point to prove in the British Superbike Championship.”
Hopkins will be aboard a Suzuki GSX-R 1000.
