Jenny Tinmouth has confirmed she will return to the Fuchs-Silkolene British Supersport Championship for Knockhill having parted ways with Splitlath Aprilia.

Tinmouth made headlines by becoming the first woman to compete in the British Superbike Championship, but the relationship with Splitlath Aprilia was curtailed after just three rounds.

Nonetheless, Tinmouth will return to the BSS series she enjoyed success competing in last year, the Ellesmere Port rider having finished third in the Cup category. She will ride the Manx Glass-backed Honda CBR600RR she competed on last year.

"My dream is to be back in the Superbike class, but at the same time I really can't wait to get back out in Supersport as it is such a cool class and now that we get two races in a weekend it's even better," she told the BSB website. "I still had my race bike from last season and it is pretty much ready to go so it is a case of final touches and getting back into the swing of things next weekend.

"I did a test at Mallory Park last week on it and it felt like I was back at home on it after a few laps and I was pleased with the lap times we were able to achieve. I can't wait to be back racing again."
