Reigning Pirelli National Superstock 1000 champion Danny Buchan will return to the MCE British Superbike championship with FS-3 Racing Kawasaki, while Lee Jackson joins the squad in the Superstock class.

Buchan clinched 10 race wins on his way to the Superstock crown this year and is set for a BSB comeback having competed in the series in 2015 and 2016.

After three years since his BSB debut Buchan is hoping to use that experience for a stronger campaign in 2018 with the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki squad.

“I'm happy to be going back into the premier class on a bike I know so well and coming off a Championship win is always great,” Buchan said. “I've been in this position before so I know what I'm jumping into, but now I'm three years older and three years wiser, so that puts me in a better position.

“I will also be working with Matt Llewellyn as my crew chief, with whom I had a couple of podiums in 2015, so the recipe is good. We are going to work hard throughout winter to be best prepared come round one.

“Thank you to Nigel and Darren at FS-3 Racing for giving me an opportunity to be back in the Superbike class and thanks to Kawasaki UK and Team Green for adding another year to our already strong relationship, which was formed in 2010.”

FS-3 Racing Kawasaki’s team owner Nigel Snook is thrilled to secure both Buchan in BSB and Jackson in the Superstock 1000 class as the team looks to build for 2018.

“We have two riders who are very capable in their respective classes and we can't wait to see what they will be able to achieve next year,” Snook said. “The British Superbike series is moving from strength to strength and we are excited to be a part of this once again in 2018, contesting not one but two of the premier classes in BSB.”
