Scottish motorcycle racer Rory Skinner will move up to the premier Bennetts British Superbike Championship after signing with the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki squad for 2021.
The 19-year-old from Perth joins the official Kawasaki UK backed team, run by Nigel Snook and Darren Fry, on the back of becoming the youngest ever winner of the middleweight class this season. He joins new team-mate Lee Jackson on board the new-for-2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR, an evolution of the 200bhp machine which has won the Superbike World Championship for the past six years in the hands of Jonathan Rea.
“I’m delighted to be joining FS-3 Kawasaki,” said Rory. “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. They’re a relatively young team but they’ve already proven to be race winners and, like me, are very ambitious.
We all wish Rory the best for his 2021 racing campaign and cannot wait to see how he gets on at his home track in July. Tickets for the event are on sale now via www.knockhill.com or phone 01383 723337.
