Former Polish Superstock 1000 Champion Bartek Wiczynski has signed to race for the Suzuki GRANDys duo team in 2012 aboard the team's GSX-R1000.

Bartek - who won the 2005 series and who rode for the GRANDys duo team between 2004 and 2007 at World Endurance, European Championship and FIM Superstock 1000 Cup level - will be joined by team-mate and multi-Polish Superstock Champion Andy Meklau.

Bartek Wiczynski:

"I'm very glad to ride with Andy in new season. Although I've raced with Andy for many years, I can still learn a lot from him. I'm looking forward for being on the top Polish Championship team again and riding in the team where I achieved my best successes."

Jacek Grandys - Suzuki GRANDys duo Team Manager:

"We have never closed the doors for Bartek to ride in our team and I always believed that some day he would return home. He has great potential and I'm sure that by joining Andy in the team, he will make great progress.
