Due to personal reasons, Cory West will be unable to reprise his perfect record at the Pan Delta Series in Zhuhai, China. Stepping in to the role will be Australian, Mark Aitchison. Mark rode with the Splitlath team in 2012 in the British Superbike Championship before a spell in World Superbike. Currently he's racing in the Asian Road Racing Series, 600 Supersport class.
Mark is looking forward to getting to grips with the EBR, and with his experience it won't take him long!
Team owner John Dimbylow said: "Mark is a fantastic talent and a really professional guy to work with when we ran the RSV4. I'm sure he'll fit right in to the new Splitlath EBR team. He'll have a fight on his hands in China, but I'm confident he'll give it his all!"
We're once again looking forward to thrilling the crowds in China!!!
