Former Red Bull Rookie and British Talent Cuo race winner Max Cook will return to the UK for 2021 to take part in the Pirelli Junior Superstock class with FS-3.
The 2017 Motostar Moto3 standard class champion scored a Rookies podium at the Sachsenring and a Junior World Championship best finish of fifth at Aragon. Cook also set a new Junior Moto3 lap record at Portimao – bettering Fabio Quartararo’s time from 2014.
The18-year-old will be challenging on a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R prepared by Nick Morgan at MSS Performance and operating out of the Dads and Lads paddock base which Morgan has created with Mark Smith-Halvorsen.
Cook was hoping to make further progress on the international stage but due to a lack of opportunities and financial pressures, he is coming back to the British scene and aiming to capitalise on the experience he has gained racing in Europe.
“I am so excited to be back competing in the UK with FS-3 Racing. I will have some great people behind me and cannot thank Nigel enough for the opportunity," said Cook.
"I am really looking forward to racing a bigger bike after a number of years campaigning Moto3 bikes. Having an MSS Performance 600 Kawasaki prepared by Nick Morgan and benefitting from his technical input at the tracks means I will have no excuses.
"I am sure my experience racing in Europe will enable me to adapt quickly to a new bike in a very competitive class. It is good to know I will be back on familiar circuits competing for wins in 2021. I can’t wait to get going."
