BSS: Newcomers name second rider

GNS Racing signs Sam Lowes for the 2010 British Supersport Championship season
Having announced earlier this week that it was to enter the 2010 Fuchs Silkolene British Supersport Championship, GNS Racing has announced the signing of current Supersport Cup Champion Sam Lowes.

The 19-year-old will join Paul Jordan in Gary Stubbington's Southampton-based team and between them, they are expected to be challenging for honours in the twelve round series aboard the team's 2009-specification Honda CBR600RRs.

While Jordan will run in the Supersport Cup, Lowes will fight for the main championship crown.

"I'm delighted to be joining GNS Racing and can't wait to get testing as after a successful first season on a 600, I feel ready for the challenge,” Lowes said. “It helps to get plans sorted early and we can now concentrate on the season ahead. I'm also looking forward to working with Paul this year and to help him adapt to the four-stroke bike from the 125 as I had to do."

Team owner Stubbington said he was delighted with his rider line-up for the new season.

"I'm very happy that I have secured the services of both Sam and Paul as they are two high quality riders who can push us towards the front in 2010,” he said. “Sam has proved his credentials by winning the Supersport Cup last year and I expect Paul will adapt to the 600 quickly. We know the bikes are proven and once we get a few miles under our belts, we'll be very well prepared for the challenge of next season."
