Race winner Reid set for Supersport title assault with Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki

Andy Reid will be back to fight for the British Supersport Championship title next season as he moves to the Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki for his 2016 campaign as the team expand into the class for the first time.

Reid made his Supersport debut in 2015 after narrowly missing out on the Superstock 600 title and instantly impressed with his pace. The 21-year-old from Belfast scored a debut victory at Oulton Park after five podium finishes earlier in the season, before a crash at Oulton Park left him sidelined for the remainder of the season with a broken wrist.

Reid said: "I feel more confident than ever ahead of next season and I have a lot of motivation to come out and prove myself because I never got the chance at the end of last year because of my injury. In my last race at Oulton Park I was leading when I crashed, but I believe had showed the pace that I am capable of running and I hope that speaks for itself. I think I have a really good crew behind me and I am coming back next year looking for nothing less than podiums and the championship win!"

The team will also expand their line-up with Andy Reid and into the Sidecar class with the 2015 championship-winning pairing of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood, who will be fighting to retain their title. 

Team Owner Pete Extance commented: "2016 is going to be a hectic and hopefully successful season, with a third solo rider announced in the form of Andy Reid in the British Supersport class, as well as the Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki sidecar crew.

"The sidecar crew will be self-contained, as per 2015, but will be part of the Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki team. It's our first attempt at Supersport and we are really looking forward to working with Andy and hopefully putting him at the sharp end from the opening round, and ultimately pushing for the Supersport crown."
