SUPERSTOCK CHAMPION FARMER SET FOR MCE BRITISH SUPERBIKE RETURN
National Superstock champion Keith Farmer will be back on the MCE Insurance
British Superbike Championship grid this season after signing for the
Liverpool-based PR Kawasaki team.
Northern Irishman Farmer won consecutive National Superstock 600 and 1000
titles in 2011 and 2012 respectively before progressing to the MCE BSB class
last season, scoring a best result of fourth place at Knockhill. However the
Superbike rookie was forced to miss out on the final three rounds of the season
and is now recharged after signing for the PR Kawasaki team and ready to prove
himself in the premier class.
The team will also line up in the Pirelli National 1000 Championship with David
Johnson; the Australian was a race winner last season and is determined to
target the 2014 title.
Farmer said: "It is really great for me to be back in the Superbike
Championship this year and also to ride a Kawasaki again as I have already had
some previous experience already to build on. My debut season was tough,
especially coming from winning two Superstock titles, because it is a big step
up. I had a best result of fourth and then I started pushing myself too hard,
but this season is a fresh start for me and I want to get consistent results
and improve throughout the season. I want to be aiming for the top ten and I
intend to chip away and give the team some strong results throughout the
Johnson added: "I very happy to be back with PR Racing. They have so much
experience and know exactly what I need to get results, both mentally and
mechanically. I am currently training hard back here in Australia and I'm very
excited for the year ahead!"
Team manager John Jameson concluded: "It is fantastic to welcome Keith to
the team. He has already proven himself to be a real talent by winning two
titles consecutively in both classes of Superstock and with experience of the
Kawasaki already under his belt we believe that together we can have a strong
2014 season. It is also great for us to be working with David again and build
on the relationship we already have together."
