JG Speedfit has announced it will be continuing its long involvement with the British Superbike Championship as well as its ongoing sponsorship of the current title-holding team.
Now part of the RWC family of brands, JG Speedfit is looking to emulate the success of the 2018 season, when the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team scored a 1-2 at the top of the rankings.
James Bell, Brand and Marketing Director at RWC, commented: “The JG Speedfit brand is all about speed, efficiency and performance, so we’re proud to be associated with a championship-winning team who displays all of those qualities. We’re looking forward to the 2019 season and hope to repeat last year’s table-topping feats.”
The 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship started at Easter, with new drivers Glenn Irwin and Ben Currie. Irwin is reportedly hoping to better his last season performance, where he finished third in the championship behind then-JG Speedfit Kawasaki riders Leon Haslam and Jake Dixon. Meanwhile, Irwin’s teammate, Australian Ben Currie, is preparing for his debut season in Bennetts BSB.
Team owner, Pete Extance, added: “It was good to have all three riders at the final test before the 2019 season gets under way. That’s the testing done and now the whole team are looking forward to hopefully starting 2019 as we left 2018: at the top!”
