Former National Superstock 600 champion Mason Law will make his debut in the British Superbike Championship this season as the 22-year-old progresses to the premier class with the Sheffield-based Team WD-40 Kawasaki.
After a successful first season in the Superstock 1000 class with the team in Stauff Quick Connect Academy colours, the former 250cc Junior Cup and Stock 600 champion maintains his position within the team who are ready to give him the showcase in the main championship.
“First of all, it’s nice that I can remain within the GR Motosport family and also with Kawasaki UK for my first crack at the British Superbike Championship. I’ve come all the way from 250cc Motocross to British Superbike with Kawasaki, which is testament to my belief in their racing machinery and hopefully vice-versa. BSB is the pinnacle at British Championship level racing, so we have to be realistic coming into my rookie season,“said Law.
“I have a lot to learn, but on a positive note, the fundamentals of the ZX-10RR are just the same, and I’m confident that the experience I gleaned last season in the Superstock 1000 class, will afford me a bit of a foot-up.
“I’m not daunted by the challenge even though the series is packed with top class riders, but I’m not going to be disrespectful and make any rash predictions. It’s an interesting project for both myself and everyone at GR Motosport and the WD40 Kawasaki British Superbike team. In truth, we are all buzzing with excitement at the prospect of getting started.”
