WESTMORELAND COMPLETES JG SPEEDFIT’S 2015 MCE BSB LINE-UP

The JG Speedfit Kawasaki team have announced their completed 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship line-up at Motorcycle Live at the NEC Birmingham, confirming that James Westmoreland will join the team alongside James Ellison.

Westmoreland is a previous Showdown contender and finished fifth in the Championship in 2013, before an injury last season hampered his campaign. 


Westmoreland said: “I’m delighted to be joining JG Speedfit Kawasaki. I’ve known Mark [Smith-Halvorsen] quite a while and I believe they are one of the very best teams in the paddock. They have the package I need to challenge right up the front, and when I say that I mean the whole package, not just the bike but testing, the technicians, set-up, everything.


“This year has been tough and I’m aiming to get my enjoyment back and of course top results. The team obviously has a full development year under their belt, so I know this is a bike that can win races.”


JG Speedfit Kawasaki Team Principal Mark Smith-Halvorsen said: “Everyone at GBmoto is really excited to welcome Westy to the team. He’s a rider who made an impact in BSB almost straight away by winning the Riders Cup before qualifying for the Showdown in 2013. A difficult 2014 with his injury meant we didn’t get to see the real James Westmoreland but I genuinely believe he’s a Showdown contender and will be looking to give him the tools he needs in terms of machinery, testing and support to fulfil his true potential.”
