Following his step in as a mid-season replacement for Gary Mason, Yorkshireman Karl Harris has signed to ride PR Racing's Kawasaki ZX-10 in the 2013 BSB Championship.
He continued to improve at each round as he become familiar with both the team setup, racing under the Quattro Plant sponsorship, and the handling of the Kawasaki ZX-10R.
On his signing Karl said. “I am really pleased to be staying with PR Racing. As a privateer team, we have a lot more freedom than the bigger teams, which works well on and off the track.” He continued. ”Last year I was asked to ride for John and the team three days before Brands Hatch. Without any real testing it was a massive learning curve for all involved.
By signing for the team for next season, I feel we are in a much stronger position than most teams on the grid, as we have already been through the hard part of setting the bike up to suit my riding style, which we know we were getting right, as we had such a good finish towards the end of the season. “
“As a team we can now concentrate on moving forward, so I feel extremely positive about 2013 and cannot wait for the season to start.”
John Jameson, Team Principal said. ” Signing Karl is an important part of our strategy and shows our commitment to the BSB series. Like a lot of teams, we have had to fight hard to keep the team going forward.”
“Karl is a great rider and his tenacity and professionalism was an important asset to the team in 2012, which I am pleased to see continue in to 2013.”
