AFTER a successful season with the Transmec KTM junior team in which he finished the British Junior Supersport Championship in third place, Trystan Finocchiaro has decided to “continue working with the guys from last year”.
Logistics company Transmec Group have confirmed their support by forming the Transmec Racing team which will run Finocchiaro in his 2020 British Superstock 600 campaign.
“It’s essentially the same set-up as last year, except we’ll be running the Kawasaki ZX636R and will be competing in the Superstock 600 category,” explained the 21-year-old racer from Redditch.
“I’m extremely excited to be working with the guys from last year. The team that Mark (Draper) put together for me last season was incredible.
“We worked very well together and I’m very grateful for the support from Transmec Group for us to be able to make this happen.”
The Transmec Racing team have also had confirmed that there will be continued support from British coffee machine manufacturer Fracino to help fuel their 2020 campaign.
“A lot of things are coming together very nicely, with a lot of the same faces from last year driving this year’s project forward,” added Trystan Finocchiaro.
“For me, it’s going to be a crucial year with a lot to learn and to have so many of the same people behind the scenes will be a tremendous help for me to be able to achieve my goals.
“In terms of actual targets, when a project is as new as this, it’s really difficult to know what to expect. We won’t truly know what to expect until we actually hit the track at the first round.
“Our first target is to score points and then continue building from there until we are at the front.”
The first step for Finocchiaro will be undergoing pre-season testing at the Cartagena circuit in Murcia, Spain. This will be the Coventry University student’s first contact with his 2020 machine and will start preparation for round one at Silverstone over the Easter weekend (April 10-12).
Finocchiaro said: “The plan is to continue working hard, both on myself in terms of on and off-track training and with the team when we go testing.
“This will put us in the best position we can be for the first round and then we can just take it from there.”
