Lee Jackson will remain with the Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team for his 2023 Bennetts British Superbike Championship campaign.

Jackson has enjoyed a breakout season this year, qualifying for the Showdown for the first time and also securing his maiden victory at Oulton Park.

Alongside that win, Jackson has also secured five further podiums and sits fifth in the championship heading into the Showdown rounds.

“I’m really excited to be remaining with the Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team for another season,” Jackson said. “This has been my most successful season in Superbikes so far, and that continuity of staying on the same bike, with the same team and another year of data will be really useful. We’re also going to have some new parts, which I’m sure will help us to take yet another step forward.

“Before then, though, we have the Showdown, and I can’t wait to get back to Oulton Park, where I’ll be putting everything on the line in the hunt for the title.”

Jackson returned to the Superbike class with FS-3 Racing in 2020 after finishing third in the National Superstock 1000 Championship with the team the previous year. Since then, the 2012 National Superstock 600 champion has picked up eight podiums onboard the ZX-10RR.

“We are delighted to have signed Lee Jackson for another season to represent the Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team in 2023,” Team Manager, Nigel Snook said. We’ve been working with Lee for five years now, and it’s been a pleasure to see him develop both as a rider and a team member.

“Scoring his first BSB victory at Oulton Park earlier in the year and now qualifying for the end of season Showdown for the first time are clear illustrations of his talent. With another year on a superbike under his belt and aided by the steady development of our ZX-10RRs, we are confident that Lee will be a serious championship contender next year.”

2022 has been a positive year for the factory Kawasaki team, with both Jackson and Rory Skinner making it into the Showdown for the first time. Jackson is 47 points behind series leader Bradley Ray with nine races remaining, whilst Skinner is seventh overall, 52 points behind Ray.

The first round of the Showdown takes place at Oulton Park this weekend (September 23-25), with the paddock heading straight to Donington Park on September 30 – October 2. The season finales takes place at Brands Hatch on October 14-16.
