Super-sub Tom Neave will swap from factory Honda to Movuono Suzuki at Silverstone’s Bennetts British Superbike round as he stands in for Chrissy Rouse.
Neave spent the last two rounds as replacement for Dan Linfoot and now jumps on to the GSX-R as Rouse is not yet recovered from a big Cadwell Park rumble.
“I was actually in the garage prepping my bike for Silverstone when Colin called and invited me for a meeting,” he said.
“I’m over the moon to have been given another opportunity to race in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Colin and the team, and I can’t wait to get back out. Naturally, it’s going to be another big learning curve. I’ve had two rounds riding the Honda, and now I’ve got to start again with a different bike. My own machine is a Suzuki, so that could be a bit of an advantage.
“It’s been such an amazing year, going from missing the start of the season with a bad shoulder injury to getting the chance to join the BSB grid, and then to get this second opportunity is fantastic.
“I got a 12th and a 15th at Cadwell Park two weeks ago, so I’d like to aim for similar results at Silverstone. I plan to spend Friday learning about the bike and getting settled in, and then hopefully we can push forward and move towards the points as the weekend goes on.”
