BSB: Luke Mossey to make racing return at Donington Park with STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki

1 of 2

Luke Mossey will be back on the Bennetts British Superbike Championship grid this weekend at Donington Park with GR Motosport.

Running in the STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki colours, Mossey will ride the ZX-10RR vacated by Tom Neave, who is still out of action after suffering a knee injury during the opening round at Navarra.

Mossey, a podium finisher at Donington last season, has yet to feature on the 2024 grid due to the L1 Racing BMW team pulling out of the championship prior to the first round in Spain.

“I can’t wait to get back on track this weekend, especially with such a well-established and professional team as GR Motosport,” Mossey said. “I was with Kawasaki for five years and it is a bike that I wanted to get back on if there was ever the opportunity as I had always had a good experience with it.

“Now here is my chance at Donington Park, which is a circuit that has always come naturally to me, and I have had quite a bit of success there – I have finished on the podium in every class I have raced in at that track!

“After not being on the grid so far this season, this weekend can’t come soon enough, and I need to thank Brent and everyone at STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki for getting me back out at Donington Park.”

Luke Mossey celebrates victory at Brands Hatch in 2017.

Mossey finished in the Showdown onboard Kawasaki machinery in 2016, securing four podiums on his way to sixth in the championship.

The following year Mossey claimed two victories and a total of five podiums from the opening seven races, but his title hopes were dashed due to a injury sustained during FP3 at Thruxton. Mossey missed four races as a result.

 “Tom is still on the road to recovery and although things are progressing very well we are not there just yet,” Team Owner, Brent Gladwin said. “After a discussion between Iain Stansbie of STAUFF UK, Tom and myself we decided to look for a substitute to race the STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki ZX10RR Superbike for this weekend’s races, and who better at Donington Park than Luke Mossey?

“Luke has great experience on the ZX10 and has had some great results at Donington Park. Luke will be working with my Team who are new to him, but I feel he will quickly settle in and enjoy a good weekend’s racing.”
