Luke Mossey will return to Kawasaki machinery for the 2021 British Superbike Championship after signing a fresh deal to compete with DB Racing, while Jack Kennedy joins the team in his quest for a third BritishSSP crown.

The Cambridge racer competed with ‘Team Green’ for four seasons between 2015-2018 through the Quattro Plant/JG Speedfit outfit, notching up two wins in that time and a run to the Title Showdown in 2016, before joining OMG Racing for 2019 and 2020 on Suzuki and BMW machinery.

For 2021, Mossey switches to DB Racing - which compete this season under the Bike Devil banner - and will throw his leg over the all-new Kawasaki ZX-10RR.

“I am really looking forward to a fresh start in 2021 and working with the team, who have so many years’ experience across the championships and with Kawasaki in the past. I feel like I am going back to my roots by getting back on a Kawasaki again; that is where it all began for me in BSB, and who I have had success with before.

“The new Kawasaki has had some really positive feedback already from the recent tests in the World Championship and it should be phenomenal to ride, I can’t wait to get testing. The upgrades on it for next year look great and I am looking forward to working with my new crew chief PJ (Pete Jennings) as he really has a lot of experience. I am really excited about next season now and I want to thank all my sponsors who continue to support me.”

He will be team-mate to Jack Kennedy, who will compete in the British Supersport class he dominated in 2018 and 2019. Whereas he achieved that feat on Yamaha machinery, Kennedy will aim for the treble as the first Kawasaki riding BritishSSP champion since Tarran Mackenzie in 2016.

“I'm back to fight for title number three in British Supersport but this time with a different team and manufacturer so I'm looking forward to the new era ahead.  I’ve had success with nearly every other manufacturer in British Supersport so the challenge now is to do the same and put an unproven Supersport project with the Kawasaki 636 on top.

“Right now I'm excited by the new project ahead having secured my place on the grid with DB Race Services for 2021. Thanks to Dave Tyson for the opportunity and big thanks also to my loyal sponsors for sticking by me in these tough and uncertain times. 

“My aim is to fight for the BSS title next season with the plan to return to SBK the following year.  It is going to be an interesting championship with a lot of competition and close racing so I'm sure the fans will be in for a treat.  I hope that we can have them all back next year as I've missed the atmosphere and the packed grandstands.”
