Buildbase Kawasaki signs Laverty, Jenkinson.

Buildbase Kawasaki has announced that Adam Jenkinson will join the re-signed John Laverty for the 2010 British Superbike season.

Formerly Hawk Kawasaki, Laverty brought Buildbase sponsorship with him to the team last season and went on to finish the season tenth overall with a best race finish of fifth, which he achieved on three occasions.

“After the 2009 season finished there was no doubt in my mind where I should be for 2010,” said Laverty, who celebrated the birth of his first child last week. “I have a great relationship with the team and I'm sure it will only get better for next season. With all the data from 2009 we should be challenging for podiums from the start.”

Jenkinson joins the team after a strong season in the National Superstock 1000cc series, which saw him claim fourth overall, with one win, for SMT Honda.

Jenkinson previously made a short but impressive debut in the BSB class in 2008, running inside the top six in the first race of the year, before a mechanical failure in race two left him with two broken arms and ended his season.

”After joining the team for the Sunflower meeting in October there was only one place I wanted to be for 2010 and here I am!” said Jenkinson. “Bring on 2010 and let's see what we can do. It will be great to be in the team with John and I am sure we can work well together to achieve the right results.”

“We have a great line up for 2010 with John and Adam, both riders are full of confidence and after a good season in 2009 I'm sure we can push on in 2010 with some top results,” stated team principal Stuart Hicken. “Our thanks must go to Buildbase who have proved to be an excellent company to work with and we look forward to working together for many seasons to come.

“We are working very hard with our technical partners pre-season especially Cosworth who are providing the expertise for our engine development programme. We will be completing initial testing in the UK before attending the official Bitubo Suspension test in Cartagena in February,” he added.
