Benny has tested the team’s 2011 racebikes and has accepted an offer to ride for the team next season.

Mark Junge – Team Owner Vesrah Suzuki
“I have been impressed by Benny’s riding after watching him compete against the team last year. I am really looking forward to working with him and getting the Vesrah Suzuki GSX-R 600 set up for him and seeing what he can do with it. All 3 of my team riders for next year are looking strong and I am ready to get to the track – Bring on Daytona in March!”

Benny Solis – Vesrah Suzuki
“As soon as I got on the Suzuki I had a really good feel for it, I was able to push and I really liked the bike. We worked on getting the set up closer to where I liked it and although we didn't have it 100%, I was still able to beat my race pace lap times from this last season, so that was a plus on my side. I'm excited to get more time on the bike because I know I can go much faster and I can get it closer to where I really like the feel. 2012 will be a good season for us!”

Breeann Poland – Team Manager Vesrah Suzuki
“The team is beyond excited to announce Benny Solis to our roster for the 2012 season. Last year he was a strong contender in the SuperSport class and ended up second. Benny knows what it takes it win on a bike. His professionalism both on and off the bike makes a great fit for the Vesrah Suzuki Team.”

“We had a test with Benny last weekend at Barber Motorsports Park and he did great on the Suzuki GSX-R 600. Benny was eager to ride every session and improve on his times from last season. With Cory being Benny's teammate next season I have the strong feeling we will be seeing a lot of our bikes running up front and pushing for podiums, if not wins!”

“The team will continue testing throughout the winter, giving all three guys a chance to have some seat time on the bikes and get used to all the new changes!!”

Brian Gibson – Owner
“The Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki team is shaping up to be a force to be reckoned with. Having Jake Lewis in Super Sport, Cory West and now Benny Solis both in Daytona SportBike I am extremely excited for the 2012 season to get started. I tested with Benny at Barber Motorsports Park last weekend and I must say I was impressed by how fast he flew by me on the track. Benny is definitely going to be the Daytona SportBike rookie to watch this year.”
