Lee Jackson will move back into the Bennetts British Superbike series next season, partnering Danny Buchan in the FS-3 Kawasaki team.
Jackson raced in Superstock 1000 class this year and team boss Nigel Snook believes he has earned another shot at the big class in 2020.
“Massive thank you to Kawasaki UK and FS-3 Racing for the opportunity next year. I’m really looking forward to getting back on the Superbike and especially with the Kawasaki brand after having such a strong season this year on the Ninja ZX-10RR,” said Jackson.
I’m really looking forward to knowing what it can do next year as a Superbike. Obviously for myself I have a few new goals I’d like to achieve and having a couple of years outside of Superbikes, now I know now what we can do and where we need to be for 2020.
“So I’m really looking forward to this opportunity on the new bike and putting in a good show for the official Kawasaki tea
A stellar year of breaking lap records and securing race wins sees Jackson currently sitting in third place in the competitive Pirellli-backed 1000cc series, where he has been campaigning under the FS-3 Racing banner over the past two seasons.
