Britain's James Ellison is ready to put the 2012 MotoGP CRT season behind him and concentrate on signing a deal in either British Superbikes or World Supersport for next season.
The Kendal man, who was unceremoniously dumped by team boss Paul Bird at the end of the season, wants to bounce back as strongly as possible and get into a two-year deal with the right team.
“I’d like to start winning again. Anywhere. Stock cars, karts, anything! I miss it. The most likely is BSB because of the teams lined up, all the ones I am speaking to are capable of running at the front which is what I want to do," said Ellison, speaking to bikesportnews.com.
"I just need to get my head around everything and try to find the best option for me. I want consistency as well; I don’t like jumping from team to team. I’ve had a lot of two-year deals/contracts but never got the second because the team went bust. The last thing you want is to jump ship all the time. Whatever I do, I’ve got to sign a minimum two-year deal just for the consistency because the second year is always the better year whatever you’re riding. I think I am riding better than ever.”
