Reigning Supersport king Rory Skinner will make his Bennetts British Superbike debut in 2021 after signing for the FS-3 Kawasaki squad.

The Scotsman will join Lee Jackson in Nigel Snook’s team which continues to be the official Kawasaki UK effort.

“I’m delighted to be joining FS-3 Racing Kawasaki. From the minute I met Darren and Nigel I clicked with them and feel that they are the right team for me at this stage in my career,” said Skinner, who signed a two-year deal.

“They’re a relatively young team but they’ve already proven to be race winners and like me are very ambitious.

“Everyone knows how good the ZX-10RR is and having seen the new bike up close I have no doubt it will be even better in 2021.

“Kawasaki UK are right behind the project and I can’t wait to get out and start testing properly in April.”

Snook added: “Always keen to support talented young riders, we’re delighted to welcome Rory Skinner to the team. At just 19, Rory was the youngest ever winner of the British Supersport class this year.

“Building on his experience in the Red Bull Rookies, Junior World Championship and winner of the inaugural British Talent Cup, Rory is now ready to test his skills against some of the best Superbike riders in the world.”
