Josh Hook Joins ASBK Grand Finale

Penrite Honda Racing today announced Josh Hook Racing will join the team for the Grand Finale of the Mi-Bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented Motul, at The Bend Motorsport Park December 3-5.

Hook recently returned from competing in Europe in the World Endurance Championship for Factory Honda F.C.C. TSR, wrapping up his season with 4th overall in the Championship.


The 2018 World Endurance Champion and dual Le Mans 24 hour winner looks forward to racing in Australia again onboard the Honda Fireblade SP in ASBK.

Josh Hook: “I’m really looking forward to racing for Penrite Honda this year at the final round of the Australian Superbikes at the Bend. It’s been a long time since I’ve raced in Australia, it’s not something I’d normally do but the opportunity came up and I’d like to thank the team a lot for making this happen. I always enjoy going up against the people I’ve grown up racing in the past and Honda have built a bike that can win races, I feel very comfortable on the Fireblade so I can’t wait to get out there.”

Penrite Honda Racing Director, Deon Coote: “We are excited to have Josh, an experienced international rider back in Australia to race in the last round of the season with us. His knowledge and expertise will be an asset to our team, and we know it will bring some added excitement to the paddock for the fans as well. It’s going to be a great way to wrap up the season.”

Honda Australia, General Manager of Sales, Tony Hinton: “Josh is all class and we are very pleased he will be representing Honda in Australia again for the final round of the ASBK. We have watched his many successes overseas and have always enjoyed watching him race in Australia during his early career so this one will be a race not to miss.”
