A double commitment for the Rapid CDH Racing team in view of the British Superbike 2023. Liam Delves’contract was renewed on December 12th, and the name of the rider who on track next year will bring the second Kawasaki Ninja ZX-100RR of the line-up led by former driver Dean Hipwell: Jack Scott, recent dominator of the British GP2 (Moto2). So, another new entry completes the ranking of the four 2022 Champions of the minor categories at the start of the BSB.
Scott debuts in the BSB
At twenty-one years of age, the Luton native lifted the GP2 crown (under-classification in the British Supersport) with 14 seasonal victories riding the Kovara Projects/RS Racing Kalex, while he also got the satisfaction of crossing the finish line first at Thruxton round. Scott will be debuting in the BSB, among high-performance bikes: “After racing for six years in the BSB support classes, I think I’m ready for this important step in my career,” the young British rider said. “2022 was a fantastic year, but being able to get into the Superbike was a dream come true.”
Cycle of the Vanquished
As mentioned, Jack Scott won’t be the only leading champion of the so-called support categories in the British Superbike at the start of the series. In 2023, Jack Kennedy (Quattro Group British Supersport), Davey Todd (Pirelli National Superstock), and Max Cook (Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship).
