Richard Kerr and AMD Motorsport will compete stateside in the MotoAmerica Superstock Championship after opportunities in the British paddock failed to present themselves.

Kerr wound up as the controversial winner of the Superstock series after originally crowned winner Dan Linfoot had his points from the final event of the season at Brands Hatch stripped over irregularities with his Optimum Motorbikes Honda.

The points - which had been multiplied for the final round with its revised scoring system - allowed Kerr to leapfrog Linfoot in the overall standings, albeit a month after the event had taken place.


AMD Motorsport had been looking to graduate to the premier BSB class for the new season but will instead venture to the United States to participate in the MotoAmerica series.

“Obviously, after nine years in the BSB paddock, we would have liked to have continued and step up to the BSB series but, unfortunately, no opportunities presented themselves,” Kerr said. 

“So we looked at other options and now that everything’s been confirmed, I’m very excited to be moving to the MotoAmerica series. There’s a whole world out there so getting the opportunity to experience something new is pretty cool and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

“The bikes have been shipped out already and will be based with Darrell Jones, who runs a Honda dealership and Ashton Yates in the MotoAmerica Superbike series, so we’ll just fly into each round which will allow me to concentrate on riding and learning the tracks. 

“That will be the biggest hurdle, along with getting used to the Dunlop tyres, as I haven’t had to do that since I first came to the British tracks nine years ago but I’m very excited about the challenge especially as I’ll be competing at some iconic circuits. I’m confident we can do a good job.”

Fraser Dykes, Team Owner added: “I’m very happy to continue supporting Richard in the development of his racing career by supplying our bikes for the MotoAmerica series project. 

“It is fantastic news that Simon Bleasdale will now also be joining him Stateside to take forward the successful partnership that they have forged over the last couple of years, culminating in them winning the Pirelli National Superstock Championship with AMD Motorsport. 

“It is exciting times and I am sure Cartersport Motorsport Media will keep us all up to date with their progress, Mary and I wish them every success in America and we hope to join them out there for a couple of rounds.”
