Louis Valleley will get a full season in the British Superbike Championship after being snapped up by NP Motorcycles for the 2024 season.
The youngster made his BSB debut with the Rapid CDH Racing team mid-way through the 2023 season, Valleley stepping up from the Junior Superstock class onto the team’s Kawasaki ZX-10RR.
Securing a best finish of tenth in the wet at Donington Park, Valleley has now been rewarded with a deal to contest the full season with NP Motorcycles to ride its Kawasaki this year.
“I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to compete in the Superbike class for the full season in 2024 with NP Racing.
“Last year, I participated in five rounds of the superbikes and had an incredible time. I learned a lot during those rounds, and now that I have had a taste of the Superbikes, I am highly motivated to move forward from last year and have a great 2024 season.
“I am looking forward to working with Neil as he is truly dedicated to the sport and is putting in a lot of time and effort to make sure that 2024 can be the best it can possibly be! I can't wait to get to Spain to start spinning some laps and begin the process, so that we can hit the ground running at round one.”
Neil Pearson added: “We are excited to welcome Louis to our team in BSB. We have worked hard behind the scenes throughout 2023 to make 2024 a promising and successful season and we are looking forward to the year ahead.
“The team is being built around Louis to give him the tools and confidence to fight for some point-scoring finishes in his first full season in the Superbike class. We are excited to start working together in testing to prepare for the opening round at Navarra.”
