After taking part in the final round of the British Championship last weekend, Billy McConnell is now preparing to return home to South Australia, where he plans to meet the 727Moto team and test with the team.

Things have recently started to look up for 727Moto with Ty Lynch firmly in contention for the Australian Supersport crown after a great show last time in morgan park.

Likewise, to a recent round of road racing championships from Victoria to Phillip Island, where many ASBK heavyweights have raced, Jed Metcher had a lot more pace on the 727Moto Superbike and mixed it in with the lead riders. Metcher also raced with Troy Herfoss in recent MotoGP support races.

The addition of the very experienced McConnell to the 727Moto lineup will be a great asset to them.

The penultimate round of the Australian Superbike Championship will run alongside the World Superbike Finals at Phillip Island on the weekend of November 20.

ASBK will then travel to South Australia for the final round the following weekend, November 27.

Billy McConnell hails from South Australia and is sure to have plenty of supporters at The Bend as he adds even more color to an event that will host international swag. MotoGP star Jack Miller is of course the headliner, and riding with him under his Thriller Motorsports banner will recently be crowned FIM Endurance World Champion Josh Hook, Moto2 rider Marcel Schrotter and Red Bull Rookie Harrison Voight .
