Team Suzuki Press Office – December 16.

2021 was very much an up and down year for the Buildbase Suzuki team, but despite injuries and general bad luck playing their part, plus ongoing bike development as Danny Kent continued to adapt to the GSX-R1000R Superbike and Gino Rea built his experience with the team, the season ended with wins and podium trophies.

After ad hoc experience in the past, former Moto3 World Champion Kent was embarking on his first full campaign aboard a Superbike, and though the opening rounds brought their challenges, there were flashes of potential including running fourth at Brands Hatch before being forced to retire with a brake issue.

Brands Hatch also delivered a dose of bad luck for Tim Neave in the National Superstock Championship, aboard his GSX-R1000R, as he was collected by a wayward rival and suffered a tear of his Acromioclavicular (AC) joint ligament.

Good fortune was around the corner, however, and at Thruxton, Kent clocked his first top-six finish before following it up with his first British Superbike podium, claiming third in the third race of the weekend.
