Francis set for first full season in Bennetts BSB with PR Racing in 2019

Joe Francis has become the latest rider to be confirmed on the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship grid, returning with PR Racing for his first full season in the Superbike class.

The 20-year-old from Chester made his Superbike debut with the team at their home circuit of Oulton Park in September, narrowly missing out on his first point scoring ride in 16th place.

Francis said: “It is a great to have signed for PR Racing for the 2019 season and I would like to thank the team and their partners from giving me this opportunity. There will be many challenges ahead as I continue to learn to ride a Superbike, but as a team we have made a great start and it will be exciting as we continue the momentum into next year.”

Team Principal, John Jameson commented:  “We are really excited to sign Joe for the 2019 season. Since joining the team he has shown a real understanding of the bike, just finishing outside of the points in his first ever race on a superbike, was exciting to watch. He is keen to make an impression in what is shaping up to be a very exciting championship.”
