2022 Quattro Group British GP2 Champion Jack Scott will make his Bennetts British Superbike Championship debut next season after joining Rapid CDH Racing Kawasaki.

Scott dominated the GP2 class, which runs within the Supersport category, this year with 14 wins and a further podium finish. Such was his dominance, the 21-year-old managed to beat Supersport Champion Jack Kennedy to victory overall at Thruxton.

“I have raced in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship support classes for the last six years now with 117 races and 71 podiums under my belt, so I feel the next step is due,” Scott said. “2022 was a fantastic year for me on the RS Racing Kalex in the GP2 class and competing with the Supersport riders. 

“Winning the race overall at Thruxton against the likes of Jack Kennedy, Brad Perie, Luke Stapleford and Harry Truelove was amazing, but winning the GP2 Championship title was unbelievable. Now having the opportunity to step up to the Superbike class is a dream come true. 

“I would like to say a big thank you to Dean at CDH Racing for offering me the ride and I am mega excited to finally be racing a Superbike. Testing can’t come soon enough now so roll on 2023.”

Scott becomes the fourth 2022 support class champion after Kennedy, Superstock winner Davey Todd and Junior Superstock Champion Max Cook, whilst he’s the fifth rookie to be confirmed alongside, Todd, Cook, Bradley Perie and Tim Neave.

Scott joins Liam Delves at the Rapid CDH Racing team, with the latter entering his second BSB campaign. Scott’s arrival means that Josh Owens’ time with the team has come to an end. Whilst his 2023 plans are yet to be confirmed, paddock rumours have linked Owens with a potential move to Hawk Racing.

Team Owner Dean Hipwell commented: “We are pleased to announce the signing of Jack for next year. Jack impressed us during the 2022 season with some good rides against the main Supersport field.

“It’s good to have both riders announced now and we are looking forward to getting back out to Spain for some testing and assessing our winter developments.”
