Maco Racing Team heads to Spa, Belgium with two crews

On Saturday 8 June 2024, the second event of the World Motorcycle Endurance Championship will take place at the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. The Slovak Maco Racing team, which has been a part of the world championship for 22 years, will again participate in the eight-hour race. The novelty is that this time two crews of the Slovak team will take the start.

The first crew will be presented traditionally in the EWC class by number 14, where Christoffer Bergman from Sweden, Takeshi Ishizuka from Japan and Martin Choy from Bulgaria will appear behind the wheel of the team’s Yamaha R1.
Bergman will replace the injured Croatian Martin Vugrinc in Le Mans.
The second crew, which will drive with starting number 43, will go under the name JP 43 RACING by MACO, will start in the Superstock class and will be managed again by Denisa Greškova. She will take care of the former competitor of the Maco Racing team and the world champion from 2003, the American Jason Pridmore, who will bring his two team mates to the start: young and very good american´ riders : Andrew Lee and Michael Gilbert.

Martin Kuzma, team owner:
“We are going to Belgium with the aim of fighting for the highest possible positions, in both classes, i.e. EWC and Superstock. Swedish racer Bergman has experience in the Supersport World Championship and we worked with him at the recent Alpe Adria Championship race in Rijeka. Both Ishizuka and Choy have already proven their qualities at Le Mans and I think they will make a strong team together with Bergman.
I am also very pleased to be working again with Jason Pridmore, with whom we have worked for many years and who was also part of our great successes. He was recently with Andrew and Michael at the Slovakia Ring to test and familiarize himself with our technique, and I am glad that we will be able to continue our former cooperation in Spa.
I salute Martin Vugrinec, the whole team wishes him a speedy recovery and return to the steering wheel.”
