It's not quite the racing season yet but Dynavolt Triumph have announced that Hannes Soomer will be riding one of the Triumph 765 Street Triple machines in the WSB support series WorldSSP following the adoption of the new rules allowing different engine configurations into the Supersport class.
Hannes already has three WorldSSP podium finishes to his name from last year when injury cut his season short. This year he will be looking to improve on that. The other racer in the new team will be Stefano Manzi.
Simon Buckmaster, Dynavolt Team Owner, said:
"We are really pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement with Hannes Soomer for our official Dynavolt Triumph team. To be honest I’ve been watching Hannes’ progress in recent years and have spoken to him the last couple of seasons about the possibility of signing for our team, so I’m pleased that for this year we’ve been able to make an agreement together.
"Hannes has already had podiums in 2020. Last year he broke his leg early in the season and came back impressively from that. I believe the potential is there, he has the experience, and he believes in our team and the Triumph project. We are excited to get started with testing and looking forward to the early part of the championship. Our aim must be to challenge towards the front and ultimately for the podiums and the title.
"I think he is going to surprise a few people - not everybody because there are a few of us who realise his talent - but he is going to be a surprise. I’m really looking forward to it."
Dynavolt spent last year racing in the British Supersport support series of BSB with Kyle Smith and Brandon Paasch.
