Shaun Winfield has been retained by the Anvil Hire Yamaha for the 2017 MCE British Superbike championship for a third consecutive campaign.

Last time out at Donington Park the 23-year-old achieved his career best result in BSB narrowly missing out on points in 16th place and with a year of development on the Yamaha R1 Winfield is relishing to opportunity to continue pushing in 2017.

“I'm delighted to continue with the team for 2017, and I'm really excited for next year,” Winfield said. “It's great to get signed up at this point so I can focus on the rest of the season, we were very close to getting in the points at Donington, and I'm looking forward to working hard in the final five races to get into the points, so we can end the year on a high.

“I've had another learning year more or less in the Championship after the team changed manufacturer for 2016, so with a full year of development under our belts, and once again another extensive winter testing programme in place I am expecting much better results in 2017. The team have further developments in place to improve the package for the new season, I can't wait to get started.”

Team owner Rob Winfield is delighted with the progress his rider has made over the course of the current campaign and feels he can carry over this momentum into next season with Derbyshire-based team.

“I'm really, really pleased Shaun has agreed to stay on for 2017, this year he has learnt a lot once again on brand new machinery,” Rob Winfield said. “He has consistently improved on his on his personal best lap times at every circuit we have visited this year, and you can certainly see the progression.

“We have once again an extensive winter testing programme in place so we can improve on the package that has been built throughout the season, alongside the upgrades that we have in place to be worked on during the winter. 2017 is certainly going to be a strong year, and we want to add to that and run at the sharp end.”
