Another New Zealander Looking For A Daytona Ride

Apparently Roadracing World is becoming the place for foreigners to let it be known that they're looking for a ride in America, as evidenced by this just-received message:<BR><BR>"My name is Shaun Harris,I am a New Zealander. I am currently Riding for Suzuki New Zealand on a GSX-R600, GSX-R750 and GSX-R1000. I am currently leading the SS600 class by 27 points and also the Superbike class by 9 points from Tony Rees and Andrew Stroud. I was the winner of the 750 Production race at the 2000 Isle Of Man races, I also hold the 750cc lap record at the TT.<BR><BR>"I realize I have left my run a little late,but I am trying to organize a ride at Daytona, I am not concerned what class,I just want the chance to show what I can do. I can bring all suspension components for the Suzuki range, my personnel preference would be Suzuki.<BR><BR>"I am currently working on a deal to bring over my GSX-R1000 Extreme bike.This would not happen until late April or early May. I have 14 years of racing history, including two years in the Japanese Championships. I also have one year of management experience in a World Grand Prix 250cc team. I have three seasons experience on a GP 250cc machine also. For my sake, I hope you can help me. I do not have a good contact base in the States. I hope to hear from you soon."<BR><BR>Harris can be contacted via e-mail at
