The Marvel HCL Motorsport team will step up to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship for the final two rounds of the season as the Pirelli National Superstock podium finishers line up with returning Franco Bourne on a Pathway specification Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.
The Marvel HCL Motorsport team together with Bourne had a strong start to the season in the Superstock class, claiming three podium finishes including a victory. Bourne then made his Bennetts BSB debut when he deputised for Andrew Irwin, when the Honda Racing UK rider was injured during a test at Knockhill.
Bourne has been gaining vital experience with the Honda Racing UK team, scoring points whilst continuing learning in the Superbike class and now he will complete the season as he is reunited with his Marvel HCL Motorsport team.
The new BSB Pathway technical regulations were first tested at Oulton Park at the previous round and are designed to make entry to Bennetts BSB more accessible.
