FCC TSR Honda
Asia Dream Cup graduate, Josh Hook proved he has what it takes to compete alongside legends when he joined a long and illustrious list of Aussies to stand on the 8-Hour podium with FCC TSR Honda, with which he also competes in the All-Japan Superbike Championship.
Teaming up with Pata Honda World Supersport rider, Kyle Smith (GBR) and Moto2 rider, Dominique Aegerter (SWI), the trio bagged a second place finish in a gruelling battle against champions, Yamaha Factory Team headed by MotoGP stars, Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro and five-time All Japan Superbike champion, Katsuyuki Nakasuga.
Up graded from a reserve rider, the team strategy became a 3 man team, All though Kyle could achieve the same lap times as his team mates and hold a consistent pace the team decided after the first two race sessions that Dominique and Josh were doing a sterling and consistent job swapping the lead with Yamaha Factory Team, they reverted back to a two rider strategy
Kyle also became a father in the middle of all this while in Japan, to a beautiful daughter Julia !!
