Experienced 125GP racer Paul Jordan has signed to ride for Gary Dawson's Repli-Cast team in 2013 and will contest a full season in the Monster British Motostar BSB support class.
Jordan has raced at the top level of domestic competition and has also wildcarded at MotoGP, so brings with him plenty of knowledge. He will be joined by an as-yet-unnamed 14-year-old Aussie and, by huge contrast, 50-year-old Ian Lougher will make a return to the squad on the roads.
"Firstly I would like to say thanks Gary so much for the opportunity to be back in the British Championship again after a year out. It's really great to get on my feet again, and back racing, so I can't thank Gary enough," said Jordan.
"In the winter break, I will be putting a big effort in to my training and getting my weight back down, so that I will be ready for testing in March where I will be getting my first run out on the bike.
"I am really looking forward to working with Gary and the Team as I have known them since I started in the British Championship, hopefully I can get Gary the results he deserves, as he is in the sport for the right reasons, so hopefully we can be up there from word go in 2013."
