Bostrom wild card confirmed with livery

LCR Livery Laguna Seca

LCR HONDA have confirmed that Ben Bostrom will wild card at Laguna Seca riding a star and stripes liveried RC212V.

Bostrom, who won a WSB round as a wildcard at Laguna Seca in 1999, said: "Words can't express how excited I am to get this amazing opportunity to race on my home track in front of the whole world. I have to thank Michael Jordan Motorsports and American Suzuki for allowing this to happen. The collaboration between Lucio, LCR and the MJM team has been terrific. I'm going to get on the GP bike and put it as close to the front as possible. Then I'm going to hop on my Jordan Suzuki bike and try to create even more magic."

The decision to invite the Californian comes from a relationship between Lucio Cecchinello and the Michael Jordan Motorsports that run Bostrom in the AMA series, the Italian commented on the doubling of the privateer team's efforts: “The U.S. GP takes place at one of the most spectacular racetracks in the world. The interest of the American fans of this sport grows more and more from year to year and the spectators are always very enthusiastic.

"Considering that some of our partners are operating in the American market, we thought that we should organize a special event before the summer break. Because of the great relationship between the LCR team and Michael Jordan Motorsports, we decided to invite one of Laguna Seca’s most successful riders to compete for us in the race: Ben Bostrom. Ben will ride with one of our RCVs as a “wild card” rider for only one race, while also taking part in the AMA Superbike race for Michael Jordan Motorsports. I’d like to offer many thanks to the Michael Jordan Motorsports team for the great collaboration and the amazing support.”

Bostrom will ride the spare bike of Toni Elias this weekend, an aim to inspire the wayward Spaniard and increase the visibilty of the sponsor's brand.
