Last season he proved that he can win, but there is also a long way in front of him to racing at the highest level. We hope we achieve it together and are looking for victory in the Junior Superstock 600 and good positions in the Supersport class also."

I'm happy that I will get new opportunities that I hadn't had before, which allows me to learn new skills from experienced team-mates like Daniel Bukowski and Bartek Wiczynski. I hope that it will be a successful season for me and the all team. I cannot wait for the first test on the new GSX-R600."
