Ray “can’t wait” to test Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP machine at Sepang

Bradley Ray is set to get his first taste of a prototype MotoGP machine, when he tests Suzuki’s GSX-RR this weekend at Sepang.

Ray, who is about to start his third season with Buildbase Suzuki, will swap his GSX-R1000R superbike for the GSX-RR machine that will be raced by Alex Rins and Juan Mir in MotoGP this year. It will be the Bennetts BSB race-winner Ray’s first visit to Sepang as he hopes to showcase his talent on a Grand Prix bike.

Ray said ahead of the test: "I can’t wait, obviously. I’ve been around the Grand Prix paddock before when I was doing Red Bull Rookies and the aim has always been to get back there, and, honestly, I can’t thank Suzuki enough for the opportunity. Not only am I testing a MotoGP bike I’m testing one of the best on the grid, when you think it finished on the podium half of the time last year and I think [Alex] Rins was the top points-scorer in the last four races. Suzuki’s development has been really impressive since they came back.

"I’ll have to learn the circuit as I’ve not been to Sepang before, and I’ll have to get my head around the additional electronics and new tyres, but I hope I can be equally impressive and show what I can do."
