Nineteen-year-old Lee Jackson will partner Ryuichi Kiyonari in the Buildbase BMW MCE British Superbike squad for 2015 for his first full season in the blue riband class.
Jackson, who comes from a racing dynasty, stood in for the injured James Westmoreland this year as well as winning Pirelli National Superstock 1000 races and has earned a spot next to three-time champ Kiyo.
"I’m really looking forward to riding with Buildbase BMW for the full season in British Superbikes next year. This season I rode the bike for four rounds and really enjoyed it. It’s such a different sensation compared to Superstock,” said Jackson.
“I can’t wait to step up and get to know the bike even better and see what we can do. Kiyo is a great team mate; he’s such an experienced rider so hopefully I can continue to learn from him. I’m really grateful that the team has given me this opportunity and I’d like to thank all those who have supported me through the past few years.”
