Dan Linfoot is set to make his Suzuka 8 Hours debut after confirming he'll line up alongside ex-MCE British Superbike champion Ryuichi Kiyonari in the Moriwaki Motul Honda team.

Linfoot joins three-time BSB champion Kiyonari and Yuki Takahashi in Moriwaki squad after its initial line-up was confirmed earlier this month and joins fellow BSB Honda rider Jason O'Halloran at the prestigious event.

"The chance came up quite late and I jumped at it," Linfoot said. "I've never been to Suzuka before, so I'm heading out to do a test between 11th and 13th.

"It's mega to be teaming up with Kiyo and Yuki Takahashi, so a big thanks to the Moriwaki team for giving me the chance.

"I've never done any endurance racing before so I've got a lot to learn about race strategy and stuff like that. I'll just take it as it comes and use it as a big learning experience. The team have good form and the other two riders are of a really good calibre so it should be good, but I've a lot to learn."
