South African rider ready for WorldSSP challenge

Whilst Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) continues to be sidelined through injury, Sheridan Morais will race in the FIM Supersport World Championship as a replacement as he prepares to take on MotorLand Aragon and TT Circuit Assen.

With the series heading into the only back to back of the season, it will be a busy two weeks for the riders and it’s a challenge Morais is looking forward to. The 33 year old was a title contender in 2017 on-board the YZF-R6, and is hoping to get up to speed and fight for the podium with the Kawasaki team.

Finishing in fourth overall last season, the South African rider is looking forward to getting back on track: "I am very excited about this opportunity together with the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team. I cannot wait to get back to racing with a Kawasaki bike, with which I had my debut season in Supersport. I have some good memories from that year, I got a lot of positive results and my first podium. The same people are still working in Kawasaki today, and they continue to win world titles. After the good result I obtained last year, I'm really confident that I can get good results during this experience. I will aim to get on the podium, but above all to win.”
