Mildura Weekly : Friday July 17 Vol 9 No 36
32 MOTORING MILDURA WEEKLY FRIDAY, JULY 17, 2015 SUNRAYSIA motorcycle road racer Josh Waters has been called up for a fourth time to race the iconic Suzuka 8-hour Endurance Race in Japan, which will be fought out next week. The British Superbike Championship rider will once again saddle up with the highly regarded Yoshimura Suzuki team, sharing riding duties with British rider Alex Lowes and Japanese rider Takuya Tsuda. Waters has enjoyed a successful record at the 8-Hour, which is one of the biggest one-off motorcycle road races in the world. The Sunraysia rider finished second on debut in 2011, and after retiring with mechanical problems in 2012, bounced back with another second place last year, just under a minute behind the winning team. “I’m very excited to be riding for Yoshimura Suzuki at this year’s Suzuka 8-Hour,” Waters said after his call up. “This is my fourth time riding for the team so I know them very well. My team mates are both great riders who I am looking forward to working with.” The Suzuka 8-Hour traditionally brings out some of the biggest names in motorcycle road racing. Former winners include Colin Edwards, Carlos Checa, Yukio Kagayama and Valentino Rossi. This year’s event has attracted Australia’s former MotoGP champion Casey Stoner, World Superbike Championship rider Michael van der Mark, Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith among a host of top tier riders. This year’s Suzuka 8-Hour is the 38th running of the event.
