EAB Racing Team extends contract with Glenn van Straalen for 2022

Following his performances in the 2021 FIM Supersport World Championship, EAB Racing Team is pleased to confirm that Glenn van Straalen will stay by EAB Racing Team in 2022. Glenn started his 2021 WorldSSP campaign at the Catalunya Round at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain and scored a top-10 finish four times out of nine races. By finishing in eighth at Race 2 in Argentina, he achieved his best result of his WorldSSP career during the penultimate race weekend of 2021.

21-years-old Glenn started his career in the WorldSBK paddock in the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship and scored two podium finishes as he ended in second twice during his home race at the TT Circuit of Assen in 2017 and 2018. In 2021 Glenn also raced in the German IDM Supersport Championship and took the double at Assen to finish third in the final standings despite missing the last race weekend at Hockenheim due to a clash with the WorldSSP race weekend at Jerez de la Frontera.

Glenn van Straalen: ‘I’m happy and proud that we can continue the hard work of 2021 and that I can race a full WorldSSP season. It’s also a great opportunity for me to once again measure myself against the best Supersport riders in the world. I can’t wait to start the season and have my fingers crossed that we can have a ‘normal’ race year, with spectators and no cancellations of races anymore. Thanks to my family, sponsors and fans for the great support in 2021, I’m looking forward to see you all soon!’

Ferry Schoenmakers – team owner: ‘We are delighted to confirm that Glenn van Straalen will remain with EAB Racing Team for 2022. Glenn has impressed me a lot this year, as he jumped on the EAB Racing Team Yamaha YZF-R6 for the first time at Barcelona and he was riding like he raced all year long in the World Supersport Championship! I’m sure that with a good winter test preparation, Glenn can make a lot of progress in 2022 and I can’t wait for the start of the new season.’

The first 2022 WorldSSP race weekend is scheduled 8 – 10 April at MotorLand Aragon, Spain.
