Ben Bostrom joins LCR for Laguna Seca
20 July 2011 – The LCR Honda MotoGP team has announced that America’s Ben Bostrom is teaming up with Toni Elías to ride in this weekend’s United States Grand Prix at Laguna Seca. Alongside his new commitment, the former World Superbike rider will continue with his ongoing AMA Superbike programme for 2011.
Bostrom is currently competing in AMA for Michael Jordan Motorsports, owned by the former NBA star. The pattern to recruit an American for the Laguna race continues for LCR, which ran with Royer Lee Hayden a year ago.
“Words can't express how excited I am to get this amazing opportunity to race on my home track in front of the whole world,” says 37-year-old Bostrom. “I have to thank Michael Jordan Motorsports and American Suzuki for allowing this to happen.
“The collaboration between Lucio, LCR and the MJM team has been terrific. I'm going to get on the GP bike and put it as close to the front as possible. Then I'm going to hop on my Jordan Suzuki bike and try to create even more magic.”
