The MSS Discovery Kawasaki team will race in the 2005 British Superbike Championship with young Frenchman Julien da Costa.

After a successful Supersport and Superstock campaign in 2004, the MSS Discovery squad will race a ZX-10R with new recruit da Costa.

Joint team owners Stuart Simmonds and Nick Morgan will field riders in all three classes with Supersport and Superstock details to be announced soon.

"A Superbike programme is something we've been considering for a long time," said Simmonds. "We've now put together a plan which is aimed firmly at MSS Discovery being competitive immediately."

"The ZX-10R has proven itself this year in both Superbike and Superstock classes and we have every confidence of being competitive," commented Nick Morgan. "In Julien da Costa I think everyone has witnessed a great young, new talent to British racing."

Da Costa joined the MSS Discovery team for the Croft and Cadwell Park National Superstock rounds, winning both races. He missed the Oulton Park round but will contest next week's Donington Park Superstock double-header.

"MSS and Discovery joining forces this year has proven successful and, in an effort to continue our progress, we will be looking to retain Pere Riba for the 2005 British Supersport Championship on the ZX-6RR," concluded Simmonds.
