Kagayama keen to impress

Yukio Kagayama admits he is keen to impress when he returns to the BSB arena for the 2010 season
Yukio Kagayama says he is keen to impress when he makes a return to the British Superbike Championship for the 2010 season.

The Japanese rider will rejoin the Worx Crescent Suzuki team next year – having previously run in the BSB with the team when it was known as Rizla Suzuki – and will partner Tommy Hill in a two-rider line-up.

The new season will see Kagayama have the chance to race in front of his sizeable contingent of british fans and he said he was keen to impress on his return.

“I am very excited about 2010 and I want to get on track to test with the Worx Crescent Suzuki team as soon as possible,” he told the official BSB website. “I just want to thank the British fans for their support and I hope to give them a good show next year.

"It has been very busy for me since the end of the season. I have spent some time in the UK and have met with the team before we went to the Show at the NEC. It was good for me to meet the UK fans again and I want to give them a good show in 2010. I am now back home in Japan and last week I tested at Hamamatsu for Suzuki; we worked on suspension and also a few engines were tested. It was a good test and I am now training hard as I want to be really fit for next year.”

As much as we all loved Guinters,his head didn't seem to be in BSB since he came back from his injury.While Kaga may be in the dusk of his racing career,he has only fond memories of his time in Britain and the feeling is generally reciprocated.I think Jack will get much mileage out of Yukio who will thrive in a familiar lower formula series.
