Sam Warren will remain with the Seton Tuning Yamaha team for the 2012 British Supersport season.

Warren finished fifth in the 2011 championship, as the top Yamaha rider, claiming one win and five podiums.

"Our preparation for the up and coming 2012 season is going very well," said Warren. "Having already been to Spain back in December, and working through a specific problem we had with the bike, I feel we're making very good progress.

"The aim for us is to now get on as many UK tracks as possible to confirm our settings and also test a few other parts we have coming along.

"Like most riders I'm really looking forward to racing on the Assen circuit. The fast and flowing nature of the track will suit the R6.

"I just hope that our lack of track time won't hamper our chances at the track, although I'm confident in the ability of the team to find the 'sweet' spot for bike settings very quickly."

In addition to Warren, Seton will also run Ben Burke, Mark Wilkinson and Bjorn Estment in the Superstock 600 Championship.

"I'm really excited about 2012. We have a really strong line-up that is capable of making a strong challenge on both titles," said team manager Phil Seton.

18-year-old Australian Andy Lawson, who had signed with the team for 2012, is facing 18 month recuperation after undergoing complex surgery, which required the use of steel rods to support his rebuilt ribcage.
