WIL Sport riders Soomer & Perez Powered By Ten Kate Racing Products In 2017

Estonian Hannes Soomer and Spain's Mika Perez will be supported by Ten Kate Racing Products as they join the WIL Sport Racedays squad for the 2017 season.

Soomer will ride in the European Supersport 600 category aboard the multiple championship winning Ten Kate Honda CBR 600 RR, whilst reigning EJC champion Perez will compete in the exciting new Supersport 300 World Championship with the TKRP Honda CBR 500 R. Both riders are graduates of the final European Junior Cup season, where Perez finished 2016 as Champion and Soomer scored regular wins and podiums, before moving up to compete as a wildcard in three races of the World Supersport 600 Championship.
Mika Perez: "I am very happy to be part of the WIL Sport Racedays team and to receive the support of Ten Kate Racing Products. I want to thank WIL Sport, all of my sponsors and Racedays for all of their efforts and for helping me on my way to hopefully becoming a World Champion someday."
Hannes Soomer: "For sure I am very excited about the partnership with Ten Kate. They know the bike I will be racing better than anyone else so the technical assistance will be really good Together with support of WIL Sport Racedays I know it will be a really strong package. It is a really big opportunity for me but it is also a big responsibility. I know the bike will be really fast, so when we get it to work withme we should get some good results. I can’t wait to start working with the team in the tests and now I am even more excited about the 2017 season."

Gerry Bryce, Team Owner: "I'm really happy to have signed Hannes and Mika. They have already proven themselves as talented racers and both know the WorldSBK circuits well after several seasons in the European Junior Cup.  We all have to be realistic in that it will be a tough competition in both categories, but they are focused on their goals and I'm sure they will give maximum effort to take the best from the opportunity they have. We're also very pleased to continue our relationship with WIL Sport, who have supported so many young athletes around the world, and we are excited to welcome Ten Kate Racing Products as official Technical Sponsor to the team. 2016 will be Racedays' tenth season of racing within the World Superbike paddock, and we are aiming for consistently strong performances in both classes."
