Superstock Champ Mackenzie returns to MCE BSB
2016 National Superstock 1000 Champion Taylor will return to the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship in 2017, joining Sylvain Guintoli at Suzuki.
Mackenzie bagged six race wins and two further podium finishes to pip Ian Hutchinson to the Championship title, he will return to the premier class in 2017 and hopes to continue the momentum he will carry on from an incredibly successful year.
The team will also continue in the Superstock class with Richard Cooper returning to the championship, hoping to once more win the title he last won in 2011.
Mackenzie said: 'I'm over the moon to be stepping up to the Superbike class in 2017 with Bennetts Suzuki and Hawk Racing. I couldn't have asked for a better 2016 and I learnt a lot during the year so I feel like now is the perfect opportunity to move up to the MCE BSB. I'm also very excited to ride alongside Sylvain next year as he has a lot of success and experience that I'm sure I can learn from. I really can't wait to get going now; Christmas has come early for me!'
