Former European Superstock 600 rider Jed Metcher will get a full season in the MCE British Superbike Championship in 2015 after signing with PR Kawasaki.

The Australian made his BSB bow with PR Racing towards the end of the 2014 season, picking a seventh place finish on his debut at Assen, performances that have earned him a full-time spot on the Kawasaki ZX-10R for next year.

A former World Supersport contender and the European Superstock 600 champion in 2011, Metcher is delighted to be stepping up to the Superbike ranks with PR Racing.

"I'm very grateful that PR Racing has given me this opportunity to ride in MCE BSB. This championship is one of the best in the world and I am looking forward to the challenge.

"We have an exciting two year programme - I will be developing my track knowledge during the first year, but will be going all out for a top ten finish in year two. I would like to thank RT racing for giving me their support and all my supporters in Australia."
