Liam: “I can‫’‬t wait to get started, it‫’‬s been a long wait for the 2020 season”

 In News

Liam Delves is at last to get his season underway after the first six rounds of the British Superbike championship had to be cancelled because of the Corona Virus outbreak.

Liam has changed teams for 2020 and is now to ride with Santander Salt TAG Racing to contest the National Superstock 600 Championship, onboard a brand new Yamaha YZF-R6.

The (soon to be) 20 year old recorded his first victory last season after a thrilling battle at Thruxton, but he now has his sights set on battling for his first British title in 2020 with the Swadlincote based outfit.

The team has secured a brand-new Yamaha YZF-R6 for Liam, and he completed a successful series of tests during the winter months. Liams lap time at Jerez equalled the lap record of a 1’47.4 for a 600 Supersport bike, set by the now MotoGP rider, Franco Morbidelli. Not bad for his first visit to Jerez!

The 19-year-old has taken victory once last season after a thrilling battle at Thruxton, but he now has his sights set on battling for his first British title in 2020 with the Swadlincote based outfit.

Liam Delves:
‫“‬I can‫’‬t wait to get started, it‫’‬s been a long wait for the 2020 season to get underway. 2019 was my first real year in the Superstock 600 championship and we came away from it with a victory at Thruxton, so now I have the right package I can keep building and hopefully go for the Championship, that is my goal and I have all the right tools to do the job.”

The much-anticipated start to the delayed season is preceded by a test day at Silverstone on Friday, July 17th when Liam will have his first ride in the UK on the new bike.
