Sylvain Barrier will stay in the Bennetts British Superbike championship after securing a ride with new team Brixx Ducati.

Barrier joined the BSB grid last year with Smiths Racing BMW and the two-time European Superstock 1000 champion will remain in the national series with Brixx Ducati, who will gain technical support from the JHP Racing and Ducati Coventry dealership, who previously worked with Troy Bayliss, Neil Hodgson, Michael Rutter and Stuart Easton.

The French rider is relishing his fresh opportunity equipped with the new Ducati V4 R and will commence a pre-season testing programme in March.

“I am very excited for this year and the new project ahead,” Barrier said. “Last year gave me a chance to learn about the championship and the circuits here in the UK and now I feel ready to take the next step with a great team and great machinery. The new V4 Ducati looks very competitive and I can’t wait to start testing in March.”

Team boss Barrie Baxter added: “I am delighted to enter the British Championship with Sylvain on the new Ducati V4R and with a brilliant team all of whom have a wealth of experience.

“This will be a learning year as we help to develop a new bike, in a new series with a new team of people. We will just keep our heads down and work hard to grow throughout this season and see what is achievable.”
