"When I got the call up I was blown away that the team thought of me to fill in. I know it's not going to be easy as the next two tracks are quite hard, but I know I have the best team behind me. I also want to thank my Team Manager Phil Tainton for coming with me!"
Perry Morison, General Manager, Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia was equally excited about the call up for the Suzuki Superbike young gun.
"We're really happy that the American Suzuki factory superbike team has requested that Josh come across for these two races" he said.
