Ulster’s Josh Elliott will return to the Morello Racing team in 2018 for another shot at the Pirelli National Superstock title which he won with them in 2015.
Elliott and Steve Buckenham’s squad will be a title favourite next season as they took the title this year with Danny Buchan, so the combination should be fierce.
With a full winter testing schedule in place, Elliott will be looking to take his second title and give the team their third, following in the footsteps of Danny Buchan who clinched this year’s Championship at the final round at Brands Hatch. He will be joined in the squad by Australian Sam Clarke.
“I’m delighted to be back with Steve and Morello Racing and they’ve given me a great opportunity to win my second title. I know it’ll be a tough season so I won’t be underestimating anyone and I know I’ll need to be at the top of my game but Steve’s put together a great package and I want to be winning races again,” said Elliott.
“Missing the first part of 2017 was tough so it’s nice to have everything secured nice and early and having seen what Danny did on the Kawasaki ZX-10R, I’m looking forward to following in his footsteps. The bike feels great and I’m excited about the year ahead so I can’t wait to go testing and get the ball rolling.”
