Freddie Foray will make his debut in the British Superbike Championship this season after signing for PR Racing Kawasaki. The Liverpool based team, who have also announced a title sponsorship deal with Quattro Plant, were forced to seek a replacement when it became apparent that Simon Andrews wouldn't be fit for the start of the season and in Foray they have a former World Endurance Champion and Bol d'Or winner.

The Frenchman admits is has been an ambition of his to compete in BSB and is looking forward to racing against such a high quality field.

“Coming to the UK has been a goal of mine and I would like to thank Quattro Plant Kawasaki for this opportunity. It will be very exciting making my debut with the team and the Championship as the level of riders this year is very high and I think it is a good step for me. It will be a challenge, which I am looking forward to, so I am keen to get out on the Quattro Plant Kawasaki as soon as possible and learn the tracks as they are different to our tracks in France.”

Foray will partner Gary Mason and the team's Development Director, Julian Mosquera, expects them to work well alongside each other.

“We are really excited to have a rider of Freddy’s experience and talent, it is a real asset to the team, and I know he and Gary (Mason) will complement each other throughout the season. As a team, we have been working hard in the closed season with signing Gary and working on new sponsorship deals. This hard work has allowed us to attract the attention of a racer, such as Freddy. The superbikes are in the workshop being finished and both the riders and bikes will be out on track over the next few weeks.”

Speaking about the new sponsorship deal, team owner John Jameson feels that it signifies PR Racing's continued prominence on the British Superbike scene.

“In the current climate it is commendable that people like John Murphy from Quattro Plant show their passion for bike racing in this way, this is great news for PR Racing and the sport. We have been growing and developing as a BSB team for over ten years, so we know our association with Quattro Plant is a positive move in support of their commercial endeavours, and with that we can forge a winning partnership for many years to come.”
