Kyle rides at Susuka 8hr.

Smith will ride alongside Moto3 star Dominique Aegerter.

Britain’s Kyle Smith will swap his Pata Honda World Supersport CBR600 for a FCC-TSR Fireblade when he makes his Suzuka Eight-Hours debut in July.

Smith will take his place alongside Swiss Moto2 star Dominique Aegerter and Japanese rider Kousuke Akiyoshi in the FCC-TSR team which has previously won the event with Jonathan Rea.

Smith has been to Japan earlyer this month for his first test on the bike before the race at the end of July – a baptism of fire for the youngster as it will be his first endurance race and first competitive ride on a Superbike.
