Hungry for a challenge; in association with Bridgestone Tyres New Zealand, the team have made the switch from Pirelli to Bridgestone Battlax V02’s.
The V02’s are built on the latest MotoGP technology, Bridgestone Slicks are widely used in the prestigious Suzuka 8 hour and hold the lap record which was set this year.
Bridgestone Slicks are the preferred tyre for the Japanese Superbike Series.
“We are really excited to again be working with M1Motorsport this season, they have always been the most professional team to be associated with in terms on commitment, drive and presentation. This year the team chooses to run Bridgestone tyres, a massive brand on the worldwide racing stage and with M1’s commitment and eagerness to invest in development time, they see Bridgestone as a huge opportunity for success.”
“Having the young blood of James Hoogenboezem also adds to the excitement, moving up to a very well set up Superbike and a professional team environment is a big step that should see him advance very quickly. James also likes the idea of running the Bridgestone’s and starting fresh straight on to Bridgestone’s means he will not need to adapt his riding style to suit a different brand of tyre, so yes very exciting times!”
