Da Costa confirms wildcard appearances in MCE BSB with Honda

Saturday, January 18 2014

World Endurance Championship contender Julien Da Costa has announced he will be making a return to the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship grid with Honda Racing this year as the Frenchman lines up with four wildcard appearances.

Three-time Endurance World champion Da Costa has previously made appearances in MCE BSB and the 2012 French Superbike champion is set for his return to the Championship with Honda in addition to his World Endurance commitments. Honda will use the wildcard rounds for their continued development of the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade this year.

Da Costa said: "I have signed with Honda Europe to compete in the World Endurance Championship on a CBR1000RR with Freddy Foray and Sébastien Gimbert, but I will also be in a few races in British Superbike. The official Samsung Honda team, who were champions in 2013 with Alex Lowes, still want to come back as strong in 2015 so they asked me to participate in the development programme with test sessions and four races during the season. I will participate at Snetterton, Donington Park, Silverstone and the final round at Brands Hatch which should be exciting."
