Storm Stacey will take part in his third consecutive BSB season after agreeing to stay with Team LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki.
After claiming two points finishes in his debut season (2020), Stacey went on to take his first top ten BSB finish in 2021 thanks to a sixth place at Donington Park, a result that remains his best to this point.
Along with his breakthrough race result, Stacey also clinched a maiden front row start after setting the second fastest lap during race one of the penultimate round - again at Donington Park.
"Obviously I am delighted to return with Brent’s team for a fourth season as it has been completely successful so far; we have had ups and downs, but mainly ups!" said Stacey. "I am looking forward to having a really good season this year - my expectations are high, but realistic.
"I am excited to get stuck into some good battles and the aim is to be consistently in the top ten - that has to be the goal for the 2022 season.
"I would like to thank LKQ Euro Car Parts for their continued support, STAUFF, all of our team partners, my personal sponsor Autotech Academy and of course Brent. I have been training harder than ever, so I can’t wait to get the racing back underway and see all the fans at the track again. Bring it on!"
Stacey is the fifth Kawasaki rider to be confirmed for the upcoming season following Rory Skinner, Lee Jackson (FS-3 Kawasaki), Liam Delves and Josh Owens (Rapid CDH Racing Kawasaki).
The team has also extended their title partnership into a third year with LKQ Euro Car Parts, the leading distributor of car, LCV and specialty parts across the UK and Republic of Ireland, with more than 280 branches, stocking over 100,000 different parts.
Team Owner Brent Gladwin added: "I am extremely pleased and excited to extend our agreements with both Storm and LKQ Euro Car Parts. As Storm rolls into our fourth season together, and his third in BSB, he will still only be 18 years old; this is unprecedented in Superbike racing.
"I am also proud that we can continue our great relationships with our all-important current Team partners, whilst welcoming some new ones. Haydock Commercials extended their fantastic care of our commercial vehicles, along with extensions from Kawasaki UK, Alan Morris, RS PRO, R&G, Belgrave Motors, DP Services and IKM. We also welcome Autotech Group to a Team partnership.
"We have great ambitions for the Superbike team and I am looking forward to announcing more fantastic news about the STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki very soon!"
