JONATHAN Perry is set to make his big bike road racing debut this season as he heads back to the international roads scene with Gordon Huxley Racing.
And with a Kawasaki ZX10R in his stable, the former Manx Grand Prix podium finisher will also be dropping into the clubs in a bid to maximise track time.
Perry’s 2018 season ran the gamut, with Supertwin wins at Wirral 100 Club meetings, Post TT Road Race podiums, Southern 100 top fives and a 16th at the Ulster Grand Prix.
But he wants to take his results a step further this year and says he’s going all in to make it happen.
“I can’t thank Gordon enough for this opportunity and for putting a bike underneath me that is more than capable of some brilliant results,” he said.
“The plan is to concentrate on the main international road races, Isle of Man TT, Southern 100 Road Races and Ulster Grand Prix and I will also be contesting my old faithful Supertwin.
“Our first shake down test will be Oulton Park on Saturday and following that we will be heading to Spain for three days at Cartagena where I will just be riding the ZX10R and getting myself up to speed with things.
“Then our first race meeting will be Brands Hatch with Thundersport GB and then Wirral 100 at Oulton Park before heading off to the Isle of Man TT Races.
“I’m really looking forward to getting going this year. I’m putting all my efforts into the racing and giving the team the results we deserve for all the hard work they put in behind the scenes.”
