Powerslide Catfoss Racing Suzuki will return to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship next season, re-signing South African contender Bjorn Estment for their second full season together.
This year, Estment had his strongest season in the championship to date, narrowly missing out on a top ten finish to score a best result of eleventh place at Donington Park, with five point-scoring finishes during the year.
Meanwhile Levi Day will line up for the team in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship.
Estment said: “I’m really so excited to continue with the Powerslide Catfoss Racing Suzuki team. In all honesty, we had a much more successful year one that we had hoped for, and through a lot of hard work and key partnerships, we made our debut season a real success.
“As a rider I feel I improved consistently throughout the season, picking up points on a regular basis and a personal best result of 11th was really something I’m pretty chuffed about. A big thanks needs to go to Steve and all at Hawk Racing for guiding us in the right direction throughout the season.
“Also a mega thanks to all the team and my personal sponsors for believing in me and this project. The goal for 2022 is pretty simple and straightforward and that is to try continuing where we left off and progress forward step by step as the season takes shape. We have a stunning new and improved bike for 2022, so I’m confident we will be able to spring a surprise here and there.”
Team Owner Brad Clarke commented: “We had a really positive first season and that has really fired us up now to build on that in the 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship. Our association with Hawk Racing is a huge positive and Bjorn is really determined to improve on his results too, so we have a real buzz about next year within the team.
“We will also have the experience of James Ellison within the team, and we will potentially see him back on track too during the season, which will also be really valuable to share his input on track too.
“We are counting down the days until we are back on track, but it definitely cannot come soon enough!”
