Silverstone BSB: Foray to replace injured Kiyonari

"I have not ridden at Silverstone before but I have done many laps on my MotoGP game on Playstation!" - Freddy Foray.
Ryuichi Kiyonari has been forced to withdraw from this weekend's MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship round at Silverstone after sustaining a shoulder injury whilst training.

Kiyonari, now aiming to return at the Brands Hatch season finale, will be replaced at Samsung Honda this weekend by Freddy Foray, who is currently riding a Honda CBR1000RR in the German IDM Superbike series.

The 29-year-old Frenchman is a double World Endurance champion who contested several rounds of last season's BSB series.

"Of course, I want to wish Kiyo a quick recovery but I am grateful to Samsung Honda for this opportunity," said Foray. "I have not ridden at Silverstone before but I have done many laps on my MotoGP game on Playstation! I am excited to ride the Samsung Honda, which will be a little bit different to my IDM machine, but I am not so worried about the change and I am looking forward to this weekend."

Team manager Havier Beltran added: "Of course, we're sorry that Kiyo won't be with us this weekend, but we're looking forward to working with Freddy and hope that he can support Alex [Lowes]."
