Norfolk’s Lee Hardy Racing have re-signed Ryan Vickers for the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike season and he will be joined by Lewis Rollo in the Superstock 1000 class.

Hardy’s mob have retained Vickers as the 2018 Junior Superstock champion bids to build on his strongest season in the Superbike class in 2020, finishing with a best result of fifth in addition to top ten finishes.

Rollo meanwhile joins the team off the back of his strongest season to date in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship, ending his 2020 season in third place in the final standings after securing a victory and a further two podium finishes in the shortened campaign.

“I am really excited to be riding for the team again and it is amazing to be continuing our relationship for the third consecutive year. I really enjoy working with the team and I am excited to be involved with developing the new Kawasaki ZX-10RR,” said Vickers.

“We have had some great results together as a team; last year we got a fifth place, my best result in the Superbike class, I am still learning the Superbike and I want to keep progressing this year. I have been working hard throughout the winter and will be more than ready come the first official test in April.”

Rollo added: “I am really pleased to announce that I will be joining Lee Hardy Racing and the team for the 2021 Superstock Championship. I have known Lee since I was 12-years-old and have always followed the team’s progress. Last year I had an amazing season and I learnt a lot; I want to build on that this year and keep progressing.

“This year stepping onto the Kawasaki, I’m hoping to take that next step forward and try to win the Championship before hopefully moving up to BSB with Lee Hardy Racing.

“I can’t wait to get started with the team and get out on the new 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR. I would like to say a huge thanks to the team for the opportunity and to all my sponsors for making this possible.”

This season will be the fifth year of an association between Lee Hardy Racing and Kawasaki, the team are yet to confirm their livery for 2021.
