Colin Wright has been appointed team manager at Movuno.com Halsall Racing Suzuki and join the Bennetts British Superbike squad from the Knockhill round in July.
The former BSB and WorldSBK team boss with GSE Racing will return to the national series this year with Martin Halsall’s squad after a number of years away from full-time racing.
Wright will become team manager at Movuno.com Halsall Racing Suzuki from the fifth round of the 2018 season at Knockhill on July 6-8 due to personal commitment clashes and is relishing his new opportunity.
“I am very excited to be coming back to BSB, particularly now I’ve met Martin,” Wright said. “It was all thanks to Neil Hodgson who introduced us, and to be honest I wish we’d done it sooner as I instantly gelled with Martin.
“He’s already got the infrastructure in place but I believe together we can really work hard and push boundaries with the Suzuki. For me, it’s a new challenge but I relish a challenge, and I now want to add Suzuki to the list of manufacturers I’ve won with.
“I’m delighted that Martin has given me the opportunity to return to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship. I am confident that I can fulfil what Martin is looking for, and I can’t wait to get back into the paddock and start building what we believe can be a winning team.”
After a year out of BSB in 2017, Halsall Racing has returned to the series with a one-rider squad led by former race winner Tommy Bridewell.
