Astro adds weight to BSB Evo class

Peter Ward will ride for Astro-Chase SST Racing in 2010 after the team decides to join the BSB Evo ranks
Top Superstock 1000 team Astro-Chase SST has confirmed it will graduate to the new British Superbike Evo class in 2010 with Peter Ward.

A stalwart of the BSB paddock, Astro is no stranger to the Superbike category having competed in a handful of rounds in 2007 and 2008, but 2010 will mark its first full-time assault.

Ward will take on rider duties for the team, the 25-year-old himself moving into the BSB class having participated in Supersport and Superstock in recent years.

“To enter BSB Evo is really important for everyone in the team and all our sponsors as we have been together from the start, so this year means we have gone full circle. The Evo class is definitely going to be close and I know that personally I am going to have to adapt and train harder than I ever have before as I want to achieve the best results possible.

“I want to be aiming for top three, it might not happen at the first round, but as we get more time on the bike I know we are capable of mixing it and producing the results.”

Behind the scenes, meanwhile, 19-year-old Sam Tromans will take up the running of the team in place of his father Stuart Tromans.

“This is an exciting time for everyone involved in the team and Evo has given us the chance to make the progression. It has always been an ambition of mine to manage a team in Superbike and now this is our chance.

“We really believe Peter can have some good performances this year and we are looking forward to Brands Hatch. We just want to keep improving at each round and making good progress throughout the whole season.”
