Congrats to Ten Kate (10th WSS championship) and Michael van der Mark - 2014 World Supersport Champions. The son of former Grand Prix racer Henk van der Mark, Michael won the 2012 Superstock 600 at Magny-Cours - his first international title. Michael van der Mark won the 2014 World Supersport championship at Jerez with two races remaining. Adding to his steller 2014 season, Michael also won the highly prestigious Suzuka 8 Hour victory for the second year in a row with MuSashi RT Harc-Pro Honda. Winning the Suzuka 8 Hour race for Honda Racing Corporation is a very important milestone for any riders career. Victory for Honda at Suzuka is held in high regard by HRC, often more than winning many of the various world titles. What does the future hold for the 21 year old? Perhaps a full season in the Moto2 class in the near future. At the very least, Ten Kate will likely move Mark onto the CBR 1000RR in the World SBK championship.
