Oliver Brindley joins the Noyes Camp Kawasaki team for the Madrid round of the new Spanish national series that will be run under the lights on a fifth-mile oval at San Martín de la Vega, south of Madrid. The young British rider will return to Spain third in the points table after taking third in the short track and fourth in the TT at Valencia in the season opening double-header. "Ollie" will defend Noyes Camp Kawasaki colors in the premier Pro Flat Track category while Ferran Sastre rides for the green team in the Rookie class and Ferran Mas in the Master (veteran) category.

After Brad Baker´s brilliant double win in Valencia on the Noyes Camp Kawasaki, team owner Kenny Noyes, the 2014 FIM CEV Superbike Champion, is continuing to loan his Kawasaki KX450F flat tracker to international stars on a race-to-race basis while he recovers from his roadracing accident just over a year ago. Kenny´s idea is to bring in outstanding foreign specialists to set the highest standards for the Spanish riders in order to develop a generation of world class Spanish flat trackers. Brindley, then, will climb onto the bike that Baker rode to wins in the short track (ahead of Ferran Cardus and Brindley) and in the TT (over Nico Terrol and Ivan Romero) at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo of the Community of Valencia.

Brindley, at age 17, has already put together an impressive record at international level in AMA Pro Flat Track, the Superprestigio of Barcelona and, now, the new Spanish national series. He was runner-up in the FIM Flat Track World Cup last year and is contending for the title in the prestigious British Championship (DTRA).

Action at the Madrid round on the new fifth-mile circuit at San Martín de la Vega will begin at 8:00 PM on July 30, starting with Flat Track Pro free practice and qualifying. The racing program of heats, semis and finals for all three classes begins at 10:00 PM and fans in Spain and around the world can follow the action live streaming HERE with Spanish commentary by the Keko Ochoa and Dennis Noyes and with periodic updates in English throughout the program.
