The MotoDex Performance First Suzuki team will be returning for a full season in the British Superbike circus, for 2013. The team which joined the STK1000 series halfway through 2012, finished regularly in the points with rider, Jesse Trayler. This year they have formed a close associated with the University of Nottingham, allowing their engineers to get a taste of working in a racing environment.
Returning rider, Trayler, a former top 6 contender in the STK600 championship, managed a best of 12th place at Brands Hatch with the team, following limited time on the GSXR-1000 Suzuki. “I am delighted to be launching my assault on the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 champion- ship this season on board the Motodex Performance First Suzuki and with help from Linxcel. We came away with some valuable data with the Suzuki after last year as well as some respectable point scoring positions. I’m looking forward to an exciting, fresh year and to moving myself forward as a rider and for Motodex Performance First.”
Meanwhile, his team mate for 2013, Stefan Capella will compete in his first full year of the championship. The London-based rider has previously competed in the series on a BMW, back in 2011, but only at particular rounds throughout the season. “I’m very excited to be joining Motodex Performance First Suzuki for the 2013 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship. With their considerable expertise and knowledge, I should be able to be competitive and consistent throughout the course of the year. Being on the grid this year is only possible by the people who support me and I’d like to thank my Dad and family who continue to be a huge part of my racing. My personal sponsors Davis Property Maintenance Ltd have been increasingly generous and I look forward to return- ing their commitment with good results and exciting racing this year.”
