Staring to replace Plater

Reigning Australian Supersport champion Bryan Staring will make his UK debut next weekend at Snetterton, with the HM Plant Honda team, as he deputises for the injured Steve Plater in the National Superstock 1000 Championship.

Staring joins the team for the next round only and flies to the UK at the start of next week in preparation for his debut.

Staring is already familiar with the Fireblade as he currently leads the Australian Superbike Championship for the Japanese manufacturer, having already lifted the Supersport title.

“I feel really privileged to have been given the chance to come and race in the UK by the HM Plant Honda team," said Staring. "It has been a dream of mine for a while, so to get the chance to come over for the Snetterton round and make that a reality is a great opportunity for me.

"The team are well known and regarded, as they have won so many titles and BSB as a whole is looked up to here in Australia so it is going to be a blast! I fly over on Monday and then get to visit the team on Wednesday before heading to Snetterton.

“I guess I am going to have to approach the weekend slightly differently to what I am used to; it will be a new team, a new track and a new, albeit similar, bike, but my aim is to take time on Friday to learn the ropes and settle in and then I need to be up there and doing the business in qualifying and the race.

"My long term goal is to come and race in BSB as that seems to be the best way to then move to the world stage. I just can't wait to get over to the UK and give it my best shot.”

its business... - Unregistered

Its a business first and sport second as far as HM Plant are concerned. They are a business who need to give good returns to their financiers (sponsors) which means good race results and maximun positive publicity for them. Country really doesnt matter, if the riders good then the races are likely to be and more people will pay to watch good, competative racing. Waving the 'British flag' doesnt really cut it any more, just look at 'British' football to see that!
