Team Suzuki Ecstar Australia has revealed Wayne Maxwell will join the outfit in a multi-year agreement that will see him contest the YMF Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) through the 2020 season.

Maxwell, who lifted the 2013 ASBK crown aboard Suzuki machinery, makes a welcomed return to the manufacturer alongside three-time champion Josh Waters.

“I’m very excited to be joining Team Suzuki Ecstar Australia for the next two years,” said Maxwell. “Last time Suzuki and I were paired together proved to be very successful, winning my first Australian Superbike championship.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on the GSX-R1000, I know how fast and competitive the GSX-R is having raced against it the last few years – I’m super excited to get to work with Phil, Warren and the rest of the team on repeating our 2013 success.”

Maxwell completed this year’s ASBK series second in the standings, ending a lengthy partnership with Yamaha. The 2019 ASBK field is beginning to take shape following announcements from championship heavy weights Yamaha Racing Team and Penrite Honda Racing last week.
