Yoshimura Suzuki has revealed its plans to compete at the Miller Motorsports Park round of the World Superbike Championship following a successful wild-card outing at Phillip Island.
The Japanese team entered the 2011 season opener with local racer Josh Waters, the former Australian Superbike Champion impressing throughout the weekend to lap on the cusp of the top ten during free practice and qualifying.
Scoring three points with a run to 13th in race two, Waters's performance has prompted Yoshimura to consider him for a plotted trip to the American event in May.
"Josh showed he has the potential," said team boss Fujio Yoshimura. "I have told him we'd like him to ride again in America at Miller Motorsports Park. It's a good start for the team and Josh and we will both get better.”
Beyond Miller, Yoshimura is also considering taking part in a handful of European rounds ahead of a possible full-time assault in 2012.
