Luke Mossey will move to the OMG Suzuki squad for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike championship after confirming his split from JG Speedfit Kawasaki earlier this week.

After four years at the Bournemouth Kawasaki-run squad, the BSB race-winner is aiming for a fresh start at the new OMG Suzuki squad who made its debut in the series this season with Gino Rea before expanding to a two-rider effort with Josh Elliott.

Mossey gets his 2019 underway early this weekend, getting to grips with the GSX-R1000 at Race of the Year at Mallory Park, and is relishing the new opportunity.

“It has been a tough year for me, but I want to thank Pete, Julie and all of the Bournemouth Kawasaki team for the past four years and wish them all the best for the future,” Mossey said.

“I needed a change and I can't wait to get started with OMG Racing. I am excited to get a go on the Suzuki as I have only raced a Kawasaki in BSB and after the season I have had, this is the new fresh challenge I need.

“I get to work with my old crew, Ray Stringer, Jonny Gill and Pete Gill and I can't wait to work with these guys again. We get to ride the bike twice before Christmas so hopefully we can get a good direction with the bike that will suit me. I think knowing all my crew from before will also make a big difference.

“I was hoping for a lot more in 2018 and it didn’t come together for various reasons, but I am looking forward to 2019 and getting the Luke Mossey back that we had before.”

Mossey ended 2018 15th place in the BSB riders’ championship in a difficult campaign for JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider hit by technical issues and injury.
