Tristan Palmer will return to the GBmoto Honda fold for the third round of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park as the substitute for the injured Dan Linfoot.
The experienced racer competed for GBmoto Honda in its first season of BSB racing in 2012, finishing 27th in the standings with a best result of 12th
Getting reacquainted with the CBR1000RR during a test at Oulton Park this week, Palmer comes on board in place of Linfoot, who is still recovering from a fractured pelvis, sustained in an accident during the opening round of the season at Brands Hatch.
"It has been a really good day on track and the team have done a fantastic job on development since I rode for them last season. It has been steady away today for me and it was nice to be back on track riding a Superbike again.
“It is obviously disappointing for Dan and I hope that he is back soon; I will be aiming for two solid results as the team have already proven that they have moved up this year.”
Palmer began the season riding the ICE MV Agusta in the National Superstock 1000 Championhip.
