Macau GP winner and MCE British Superbike Riders’ Cup holder Stuart Easton will again partner Shane Byrne in the Paul Bird team for 2015.
The Hawick rider will remain on Kawasaki machinery with the squad and says it is important to have continuity from one year to the next in order to challenge for the title.
"It's great to have the deal sorted early and we can concentrate on 2015. It was important to have continuity and to remain with the same team on the same bike so it's a positive step for me. I found myself scoring good points and had some great results in the last few meetings of this year so the plan is to continue where I left off this season and to seriously challenge for the title in 2015,” said Easton.
