Appleyard Macadam Racing have announced Keith Farmer will remain with the Yorkshire outfit for the remainder of the Dickies British Supersport championship after impressing during the opening three rounds.
Two podium finishes and sitting equal second in the standings, whilst standing in for the injured Luke Jones, has been enough to secure a permanent ride up to the end of the year.
Jones’ injury will see him return later than first planned, but the Hereford rider will be back with Appleyard Macadam before the end of the year.
“It’s massively unfortunate for Luke that he’s injured but fortunate for me that the team contacted me about riding the first three rounds. It’s greatly appreciated that I’m not only on a bike, but a bike that’s competitive,” said Farmer, speaking to bikesportnews.com this morning.
“It’s a family run, friendly team who tell me exactly how things are and that helped me settle in quickly; it made me feel like I’ve been with them for years.
“With some tests between now and Knockhill, despite Taz [Mackenzie] pulling some points out on us, we still think we can challenge for the championship.”
