American teenager Jacobsen makes it three for PTR Honda

American teenager Patrick Jacobsen will make his international debut at Phillip Island in February for the opening World Supersport race after signing to ride for PTR Honda in 2012.

The 18-year-old, who has competed in the Spanish CEV series and rode as a wildcard in the Indianapolis MotoGP 125cc race two years ago, makes the Louth-based team's compliment three after the signing of BSB regular Martin Jessopp. He moves across from the AMA Daytona Sportbike series.

“I’m very excited about returning to Europe to race in the World Super Sport class with my new team PTR Honda. I have always loved riding Honda’s, and the 600 in particular is a fantastic bike. I know the reputation of PTR and Parkalgar, and I am proud to have the opportunity to ride with such an excellent team on such an incredible bike," said Jacobsen.



“I feel that the timing of this move is perfect. My experience and training so far have opened up this path for me to follow. But also, I know that in many ways I’ll be starting from the beginning again. There will be new people, new tracks, and new styles.

"There will be a lot to learn, but I intend to be competitive straightaway. I’ll need to work very hard to achieve success for myself and my team, but I know that I will have the complete support of Simon and the entire team. Thanks to everyone on both sides of the Atlantic who made this deal happen. I can’t wait to head over to the UK to begin!”
