The 16-year-old said he was delighted to remain in former British Supercup Cup champion Craig Fitzpatrick's team next season.
“I am really pleased to have signed this deal with CF Motorsport,” he said.
“I built up a good relationship with Craig last season and I am looking forward to working with him again in 2013.
“Stepping up to the British Supersport Championship is going to be a challenge but one which I am excited about,” added Dixon.
“I am confident that the package will be competitive and hopefully we will be up there challenging at the front.”
Team boss Fitzpatrick added: “Since I stopped racing I have been keen to try and support talented young riders.

“I am now keen that we manage our own team and continue to develop on that,” he added
“We all feel that Jake is ready to step up to the Supersport Championship and hopefully our experience in the class will help him to compete at the front once more.”
