Santander TAG Yamaha withdraw from remainder of 2020 British Superbike season

Santander TAG Yamaha team have taken the decision to withdraw from the remainder of this year’s Bennetts British Superbike series after being unable to come up with a solution to an underlying chatter issue that has dogged both Jack Kennedy and Dan Linfoot.

The team has turned the bike upside down and back to front in order to try and fix the problem, working closely with suspension supplier Ohlins but have been unable to come up with a solution, so instead have taken the decision to sort out the issues away from a race environment.

Linfoot has already taken up an option to sign with the team for 2021 while Kennedy has been offered a new deal. Both riders are now free to persue other options for the remainder of the season.


“We’re really, really pleased to sign Dan once again for 2021 and to agree it so early on I feel is a real statement of intent from us,” said team manager Gary Winfield.

“Throughout the issues over the last 18 months Dan has remained incredibly professional and continued to do his job with the utmost integrity.

“It will mark his third season with us and we’re delighted he made his decision as fast as he did. We and Dan know that what has happened over the previous six rounds of this season hasn’t been good enough, it was a mutual decision to for us to focus on next season, which we are now doing, and we wish Dan and Jack the very best of luck for the rest of 2020 season.

“We’re close to announcing what our new vision for 2021 will be, we’ve spent plenty of time planning it and we’re confident we can once again prove plenty of people wrong, much like we have done in the past.

“Finally I need to thank all of our sponsors and partners who have respected our decision to pull out of the Superbike class this year, but rest assured we’ll be back stronger in 2021.”

The team will continue in the Pirelli Superstock 1000 class with Shaun Winfield and Liam Delves in 600.
