Mossey sticks with Bournemouth Kawasaki for third year
Luke Mossey will return for a third consecutive year with the Bournemouth Kawasaki team in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship after another strong year in the championship, going so far as to achieve a showdown place for the first ever time.
Mossey made his debut in 2015 and bagged the Riders Cup title at the end of it all, becoming a podium finisher and demonstrating patience not to push too hard too early and the results continued to come in his second year in the Championship.
The Cambridge-based rider bagged four podiums in 2016 and will hope for even more in 2017 as he joins Championship contender Leon Haslam on the Kawasaki.
The rider said: 'I am over the moon to be staying with the Bournemouth Kawasaki team for a third season, we have built up a really good relationship and that is so important. It means we can really hit the ground running when we start testing and we already have a good idea of where we need to start.
'We start in a really good position and without a shadow of a doubt I want to step up again next year and now we have been in the Showdown, we need to improve on that. I feel that I have got the pace to fight for more podiums next season; we just need to work on consistency.
'It feels great to be ready to go now for the new season and I am really looking forward to it. We didn't quite get that first race win in Superbikes this year which was annoying, so that is my first target and then we want to be pushing to be better than this season - I can't wait to get started'
