Fisher showed a lot of promise last year and is intent on moving forward in 2012.

With a new Kawasaki 600 under him he will be aiming his sights at podium finishes and said: “I had a good season last year with a fair few top 10 results to show for my efforts.

“Towards the end of the campaign I was consistently running near the front and growing in confidence with every outing.

“I want to reward the team and sponsors for their continued support by making further progress towards the podium.”

Jonathan Howarth joined the team in 2011 and, despite an early injury which hampered his progress, enjoyed his best ever season in the Metzeler Superstock 1000 class where he finished in a fine 11th place.

He commented: “I was involved in someone else’s accident at Brands Hatch in the opening round and picked up an injury.

“That held me back a bit but once I recovered I began to bring home some good results including a strong fifth place in the rain at Oulton Park.

“I am confident I can continue to improve and I too am aiming for the podium this year.”

Young suffered a few problems in 2011, but with a new team supporting him he feels he can turn things around this year.

He said: “I began the year well but my team folded mid season and I was left to go it alone.

“I was encouraged by a fourth place at Knockhill and am looking forward to joining Team Green/G&S Racing to build on this.

“I know I am capable of running at the front of the field and my aim is to repay the team with some top results.”

Team manager Mark Fisher added: “We are all geared up for the new season; we have a new transporter and awning from which we will run the three new Kawasaki machines.

“Our three riders are all raring to go and we are looking forward to getting out there for some pre-season testing.

“I am really proud of what we were able to achieve in 2011, the whole team worked very hard and between us we produced some good results.

“With the new equipment and continued input from Kawasaki Motors UK we have made a huge step forward and we are all anticipating a successful year of racing.”
