Gilbertson latest to confirm Cup place

Kenny Gilbertson has become the latest rider to confirm his place in the 2009 British Suprbike Cup.

Gilbertson made a handful of appearances in the 2008 Superbike series last year riding an Astro Kawasaki, although the majority of his year was spent in the Superstock class where he finished 13th overall with a best result of third at Knockhill.

For 2009, Gilbertson makes a full-time step up to the Superbike Cup after concluding a deal to ride a Kawasaki prepared by Jx Fuelcard.

"I am really happy to have been given the chance to race in BSB full-time by the Jx Fuelcard Kawasaki team,” he told the British Superbike website. “I have done a handful of races in BSB before, but now I can just focus on racing in the Cup, whereas last year I was doing some races whilst still running in the National Superstock series.

“This will be the team's debut season in BSB so I want to give them some good results. For sure the competition in the Cup is stronger than it has ever been before but I am looking for podium finishes and aiming for the top ten in the main championship."

Gilbertson is the 29th rider to be confirmed to the 2009 BSB grid and the ninth full-time Cup competitor. He will go up against Gary Mason, Tom Tunstall, Peter Hickman, Victory Cox, Chris Burns, Billy McCormack, Martin Jessopp and Alastair Fagan.
