Team Bolliger Kawasaki: Suchet leaves, Stamm to retire after Suzuka

Team Bolliger Kawasaki: Suchet leaves, Stamm to retire after Suzuka

Another change in teams is on the cards for the 2019/2020 FIM Endurance World Championship before the start of the 2020 part: Sebastien Suchet opted to leave the #8 Team Bolliger Switzerland Kawasaki squad to refocus on “new adventures” as the team’s statement reads. 

There is no info yet on where Suchet will head or if he is about to continue in Endurance racing. 

Another blast for the Hans-Peter “Hämpu” and Kevin Bolliger run squad will be the departure of Roman Stamm. The Swiss rider will continue with the team through the rest of the 2019/2020 season with the Suzuka 8 hours being the last race of his career. Stamm rode a total of 15 years for Team Bolliger. 

Nigel Walraven meanwhile will stay with the Swiss privateer team and might well be the only one remaining in the team at the 2020/2021 season opener at this year’s Bol d’Or.

As Team Bolliger states, there is no replacement rider signed as off now but the search is running on a high pace as there is not much time left until the first official testing days in March and April. The team will announce its third rider shortly, the statement reads.
