Local rider Barry Burrell back in British Superbikes

AU1152574Team WD-40 are pleased to announce they are the latest contenders to progress into the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship. This previous Superstock and Motostar winning team are set to compete in the Superstock 1000 with #40 Ben Young, Superstock 600 with #40 Tarran Mackenzie and make their highly anticipated debut in the premier Superbikes class with the exciting new addition, Bishop Auckland based  #7 Barry Burrell (sitting on the bike).

Burrell’s debut with Team WD-40 is really exciting, as he is returning to the MCE BSB grid with an already established history of scoring top ten finishes and his experience in the IDM (German) series, as he prepares for only his second full MCE BSB campaign.

For Burrell, who rode a full BSB season in 2012 with Buildbase BMW and a handful of races with Quattro Plant Kawasaki in 2013, the chance to join the burgeoning WD-40 team was hard to resist.
“I am really excited about the chance to work with Team WD-40 as this is a great team with some big aspirations. This is only my second full season in BSB and I can't wait to get out on the grid. The crew have been working hard behind the scenes ready for this year - their first in the Superbike Championship. I know that together we can push towards achieving our goals as we have a strong base to begin the season in the best possible way.”

Team owner Brent Gladwin concluded: “We are a relatively young team in the British Championship paddock but with the success of 2013 behind us we have big ambitions for the future. We have taken our time to announce our completed line up and we are pleased that we can now confirm our 2014 team. With our 3 riders, we have a perfect combination of experience, determination and tenacity. Team WD-40 has a strong package with the Kawasaki’s and our loyal partners, so I am delighted with how we are kicking off for 2014 and we are looking forward to another great season of racing.”
