Rhalf Lo Turco is returning for a second season in British Superbikes with the SBK City Racing team and says he is thrilled to be competing against some of the best riders in the world.

The Brazilian, who is a former Triumph Triple Challenger Champion, returns to the team he rode for last season on a Kawasaki ZX-10R, with his best finish of 19th place coming at Donington Park.

"For me it is a privilege to be part of the Championship as I know there are many riders who would like to be in my position," Lo Turco said. "I will try my best to not disappoint anyone involved and best of all have the best time of my life racing against some of the best riders in the world."

"Last year we all learnt a lot and towards the second part of the season we managed to make some really good improvements, particularly at Donington Park and the last round at Brands Hatch," Lo Turco added.

Lo Turco, who turns 40 in August, will become the seventh different nationality on the 2015 BSB grid and will keep his bright Brazilian flag racing livery.

"The final round of the year was one of the highlights for me as I finished ahead of some quality teams and experienced riders. That was like the icing on the cake for me."
