American Joshua Day will be racing in the World Supersport Championship in 2012. Day spent the 2011 season in the European Superstock 600 where he took two race wins, multiple podiums, and a few pole positions. Day finished second overall in the European Superstock 600 and is now ready for the World challenge.
Day will be able to stay on a Kawasaki during the 2012 season as he has just signed on to race with the Italian Go Eleven Team.
“I’m really glad to have been given this opportunity after such a great year with Kawasaki in STK 600 and I’m going to do my best to give Go Eleven the results they deserve,” Day said. I have to thank Gianni Ramello of Team Go Eleven for putting his faith in me and also Kawasaki, Leo Vince, Gina Nadeau from Competition Sports, and Gerry Bryce from Racedays for working so hard to put this package together. I know most of the circuits now, and I know I can be fast on the Kawasaki so we’ll be going for the win from day one.”
Day will be riding for team owner Gianni Ramello on the Go Eleven team.
“When I first saw Josh in Stock 600 I had a dream to have him in my team,” Ramello said. “Now the dream has become reality! I think that Josh has really great qualities and that together we can do great things. The team is very excited about this and we cannot wait to start working. I believe in young people and the philosophy of my team is to give them the opportunity to advance. And so I wanted Josh to join us and I will also continue with the talented Christian Gamarino in STK 600. Thanks to Kawasaki and to all those who are so enthusiastic to take part in this project – the mechanics, and our great team manager Denis Sacchetti. I’m sure that Josh is really the right man for this team and I feel that we can take away great satisfaction.”
