After the disappointment of having to withdraw from the 2021 MotoAmerica Superbike Championship, Jason Aguilar is delighted to announce that thanks to Superbike Unlimited Racing he will be back on track at the season finale at Barber Motorsport Park this coming weekend.
Aguilar, a multiple podium finisher in Supersport last season and the former Stock 600 Champ, has been on the spanners for much of the year but is understandably excited to return to racing himself after several positive on track tests during 2021.
The triple header at Barber Motorsport Park will be Jason’s debut in the MotoAmerica Superbike category. He will race a Kawasaki ZX10-RR.
Jason Aguilar: “I’d like to say how happy and excited I am to get back to racing. After almost a full season of not being on track after the deal I had fell through I began to talk to Superbike Unlimited about doing something together. We had planned to race sooner than at the final round but some things outside of our control prevented that from happening. It’s not ideal to just enter for the final round but the main thing is we are racing. We have limited testing and I have no experience of racing on a 1000cc machine, but we are going to make the best of it we can. I have no major goals or expectations I just want to have fun and show what a great package we have. It is going to be a huge learning curve, but I honestly cannot wait. I want to remind people that I am still a racer, and I can’t thank the guys at Superbike Unlimited enough for the opportunity and for believing in me. They have been working so hard and I really hope that we can secure some great results. I want to thank all the team sponsors, and some of my personal sponsors, Lexin, Motul, they have really stepped up and supported me and this is major. I can’t wait to get started.”
Superbike Unlimited: “I know I speak for everyone at SBU when I say that we’re really looking forward to getting back on the MotoAmerica grid and with Jason. We’ve had a good working dynamic on, and off track and I’ve been happy to find that our Kawasaki ZX-10RR has thus far only needed the normal setting adjustments for Jason to be comfortable. Whilst we’d planned to get started much earlier this season, we had some unusual parts availability issues that greatly limited our ability to prepare in a timely fashion. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have some truly great sponsors who have been patient with us during this time. Better late than never, we’re ready now and we’re excited to race in Birmingham and be a part of this great series.”
