Motorpoint head for BSB opener

"Motorsport Yamaha riders Loris Baz and James Westmoreland start their first full season of BSB action at Brands Hatch this weekend" - James Westmoreland.
Motorsport Yamaha riders Loris Baz and James Westmoreland start their first full season of BSB action at Brands Hatch this weekend.

18-year-old Frenchman Baz will be the youngest rider on the grid, but has experience of most of the short Indy circuit from European Superstock racing.

“I am really looking forward to going racing now. I have good memories here at Brands Hatch as I won my European Superstock race in 2008,” he said. “The testing has gone well and we all feel confident, I know the pace will be very fast as there are so many good riders with good bikes it should be real fun”

22-year-old Westmoreland makes the move up to BSB after finishing second in the British Supersport class last season.

“We have all been working hard to get to Brands in good shape and I believe we are ready,” said Westmoreland. “Starting here on the Indy track will be a bit manic, and a 46-sec lap does not let you catch your breath! The atmosphere will be great and the buzz around the place really motivates you. This is my first race on the Superbike so let's see how I can do!

“Pre-season has been a bit of a surprise because we have been pretty strong and already knocking on the door of the top teams. There are a lot of differences from a Supersport bike but I've found it easy to adapt and I am as ready as I will ever be for Brands Hatch.”
