JR Performance Racing announce Luxton, Brooks and Talbot for Superstock 600 campaign

JR Performance Racing has announced their line up for the 2020 Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship campaign, with Ben Luxton returning with the team and joined by Dan Brooks and young gun Joe Talbot.

Luxton remains with the team following a successful season in the series in 2019, with a strong fifth place finish in the final standings. Dan Brooks will be looking to build on his points scoring finishes in his debut season with the pair joined by this year’s Thundersport GP3 Superteens champion Talbot.

Luxton said: “I’m really happy to be back with the JR Performance squad for a second year. We had an extremely happy season in 2019 despite a tumble at Brands Hatch which cost me a few points. I can’t be any happier with the team, who took me to three pole positions and my first win. I can’t wait to get going now, it’s going to be tough but I’m confident we can get the job done in 2020.”

Brooks said: “I’m very thankful for this massive opportunity. After working with Joe and the whole team towards the end of 2019, I know we are capable to run inside the top ten. Also having Ben as a teammate with such great knowledge, I know he can help me get to where I want to be. 2020 is set to be awesome and I can’t wait to get going.”

Talbot said: “I’m a little bit lost for words really; I didn’t expect to be where I am now. After only having two years’ experience on tarmac and taking my first title, it feels great. After meeting Joe in Spain earlier on in the year I didn’t think he would be asking me to ride for his team and with Joe’s experience and knowledge, I feel I’m in a great place. Working with Ben and Dan can only help me gain experience and hopefully I can finish in the points. I can’t wait to get going in 2020.”

Team Principal Joe Richardson commented: “I feel I have a real strong team around me for the 2020 season - all three riders are more than capable of top results next season. Having Ben back for another season is great for the team, not only for the results but he’s very talented and easy to work with. He will most certainly bring Dan and Joe on heaps and bounds with his riding experience and knowledge.

“After working with Dan in the last three rounds of 2019, he is a very determined young man who goes about his business the right way every time. He has great feel for a motorbike and I believe he’s capable of running up at the sharp end

“As for Joe, I’ve followed his progress right from meeting him in Cartagena earlier this season. For someone to have so little experience on tarmac, I believe with more time on a big bike he will be one for the future. I have no big expectations from him, just little steps. I just need to say a massive thank you to Kawasaki, DLR Transport, Putoline, MSS Performance, B&C Express and R&G crash protection.”
