2020 was a positive year for Jones in the Junior Supersport class, clinching a series-best result of seventh in the rainy conditions at Snetterton. Alongside her commitments in the Junior Supersport Championship, Jones will also compete in Yamaha Motor UK's R3 bLU cRU Challenge.
“I’m really excited to be part of the #SupportedByOMG programme again for 2021," Jones said. "Last year showed strengths and weaknesses but we know what to improve on going into this season.
"Having a British Superbike team like OMG onboard really helps as we’re a family run team, so the advice their mechanics provide on set up is fantastic. Also, having the new experience of the BluCru Challenge I really feel is going to maximize my performance!
"I want to utilise this experience to bring myself to podium pace, and I think this is the perfect year for me to do this with the strength of M.R.S Racing.”
Jones, from Daventry, is a two-time British Minibike Champion, and is the only female rider to score points in the Junior Supersport Championship.
"Our main aim with the #SupportedByOMG scheme was to help provide a platform for fantastic causes within racing to be promoted, and Chloe’s racing talent and passion for helping young female riders into our sport is something which we admire greatly within our team," Rich Energy OMG Racing team owner Alan Gardner added.
We look forward to seeing Chloe continue to develop and hopefully build on some outstanding results in 2021."
The 2021 BSB season is due to begin at Oulton Park on the second Bank Holiday weekend in May (29-31).
