04.03.2021



With these prospects, the FIM World Supersport Championship season 2021 will start in May and Kallio Racing is once again involved, ready and eager to start a new racing season. This year the Finnish team is also going to be strong with its two riders: the Estonian Hannes Soomer and the Finn Vertti Takala. Finns and Estonians are known as hard workers and for their tenacity, so top-level performance is expected this season as well.

23-year-old Hannes Soomer will ride Kallio Racing’s Yamaha for the second consecutive season. Last season was a little different due to the COVID-19 but despite the exceptional circumstances, Soomer achieved great results on the track including three consecutive podium placements. “It was extremely important after the challenging last season that the collaboration with Hannes continued. The results improved constantly during the season and especially the end-of-season podiums gave us the impression that we are doing things right. Now we are aware of the things we need to focus on particularly in order to be able to fight at the forefront throughout the season. And of course, this must be our goal,” says Vesa Kallio, Kallio Racing's team manager.

Hannes Soomer:
“I am happy to continue for another year with Kallio Racing. We can take the experience of last year and use it to fight for more podiums, wins and a top place in the championship this year. Working with people I know well and value highly makes me very excited and confident for the new season. It is a strange time in the world right now, but I am staying healthy, fit and ready to start racing when the season starts.”

The World Supersport season 2021’s first race will be ridden in Estoril, Portugal on 7th – 9th of May 2021.
