James Ellison believes he is well positioned to revive his international motorcycling career as he embarks on a return to the World Supersport Championship in 2011.
Though his deal with Performance Technical Racing had been confirmed some months ago, it has since been revealed that he will ride under the PTR Bogdanka banner as part of a tie-in with another Polish operation.
With PTR finishing second in the WSS standings for the last two seasons, Ellison is excited at the opportunity to join a front-running team and is confident he will be challenging for the title this season.
"I made the choice to ride for this team and in this Championship because I know I have the ability to win the World Championship. I could have taken different rides but I believe in this project and my only aim is to win the title - that gives me a strong
platform to advance my World Championship career."
Ellison joins the series having raced at British Superbike level for the last three seasons, finishing second in 2009 behind Aprilia World Superbike rider Leon Camier. He is a former European Superstock champion and competed in MotoGP in 2005 and 2006.
