Farmer replaces Easton for Oulton

Superstock 1000 front runner Keith Farmer will ride the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki ZX-10R at Oulton Park in place of the injured Stuart Easton.
National Superstock 1000 Championship leader Keith Farmer is to make his surprise MCE British Superbike Championship debut at Oulton Park this weekend after being called up to replace the injured Stuart Easton on the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki.

The youngster, who currently heads the SSTK 1000 standings over Jason O'Halloran by three points, already races a Paul Bird Motorsport-prepared Kawasaki ZX-10R in that series, but will now get a chance on the full Superbike after Easton opted not to compete.

The Scot has been struggling with a knee he twisted in an accident during the non-championship Silverstone 200 event last month and after returning to action during free practice at Oulton Park, decided to sit the remainder of the event out.

The reigning Superstock 600 champion, Farmer will make his debut on the full Superbike in third free practice.

He has outstanding talent, but joining at the third practice for a complete rookie is far from ideal. I only wish him good luck. Will he able to do his st1000 duties too? 3 sbk and 1 st1000 race seems a bit too much.
