Estment set for Motorpoint British Supersport Championship return

South African contender Bjorn Estment will return to the 2015 Motorpoint British Supersport Championship grid as he prepares to battle for honours in the Evo class with the NFB Financial Services team.

Estment and the new NFB Financial Services team have secured a Smiths Racing prepared Triumph 675R Evo machine for the forthcoming season and are looking to build on his previous results of top ten finishes.

Estment said: "I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I will be making a return to my new 'home' once again in 2015. There have been many uncertain times over the winter break, but the support and enthusiasm that I have received from the British public and race fans alike has been fantastic and incredibly motivating when times have got tough.

"It is a very exciting year for me as a new bike and manufacturer is always interesting, fresh and a challenge. A huge thanks to NFB Financial Services Group and Smiths Racing, for their efficiency and professionalism in making it happen. I would like to thank everyone who continues to support my efforts and I am looking forward to a successful season aboard the new machine. Roll on round one - hell yeah!"
