Jacobsen itching for Tyco Suzuki Superbike debut

'It will be pretty special seeing my name on the screen on one of those tricked-up GSX-R1000 Tyco Suzuki Superbikes' - PJ Jacobsen
Tyco Suzuki's British Superbike young gun PJ Jacobsen says he is counting down the days until he makes his debut in the British Superbike Championship.

Jacobsen remains in New York but will move to Northern Ireland at the beginning of March to link up with the Ulster team.

He was a revelation in the British championship last season, earning wins in the National Superstock 1000 and Supersport 600 classes during one-off rides on the Tyco Suzuki machines.

It was enough to convince Neill to sign the 19-year-old alongside Josh Brookes for 2013 and Jacobsen is eager to make his mark on the GSX-R1000.

“I really can't wait to see everybody in the team and settle in. Being there last year helped a lot and I know what to expect which is pretty much, all good,” he said.

“Having secured the deal to ride the Superbike alongside Josh, I just can't wait to get started and it will be pretty special seeing my name on the screen on one of those tricked-up GSX-R1000 Tyco Suzuki Superbikes.

“I'm now counting down the days until I get to pull my new leathers on for the season – so I'm sure I'll see you all pretty soon.”

The popular American spent the festive period with his family and girlfriend Danielle, but has eased himself back into training with a spot of ice racing.

“I really enjoyed spending Christmas and New Year with my family and Danielle, and it's something that you definitely should cherish.

“After the holidays I have really just been waiting for the ice and we finally got it,” he added.

“Since then I have just been doing a lot of ice riding and really got back into training hard for the season at the start of January.

“I'll try to spend as much time with my family and friends as I can until Danielle and I take off for Northern Ireland around the start of March to set up home for the season.”

Go PJ! We're pulling for you back in the states. :) I only wish more riders would attempt to ride oversea's like you have. At the moment, BSB is pretty much the place to be if you want to move up to WSBK.
