Wyberton-based G&S Racing have completed the signing of a second Dutch rider, 17-year-old Jordy De Jonge.

He will join fellow countryman Kevin Van Leuven and Tom Fisher for next season.

De Jonge was attracted to the highly-competitive championship after attending the Assen round of BSB and came over to watch the final round at Brands Hatch.

After talking with other teams and riders he was keen to join G&S Racing to mount his own challenge on the Superstock 600 series.

“I am very pleased to be able to ride with G&S Racing for 2015,” said De Jonge.

“The team have worked with Kawasaki for many years and have the knowledge and experience I will need to help me in my first year at BSB.

“I have been watching BSB and understand that I have a big task in my first year but I am up for it.”

Van Leuven is to return to the UK after a very good first year when he finished in the top 10 in the championship with a best result of seventh.

With some useful track knowledge under his belt, he should be even more competitive and is anticipating challenging for race wins in 2015.

He will also be on hand to help his Dutch teammate settle in to the British racing scene.

Following on from his rookie first year on the Kawasaki ZX10R, Tom Fisher will once again campaign the Superstock 1000 series.

Despite being hampered with a hand injury, he recorded some strong results and when he is fully fit he will be far more competitive.
