Aaron Clarke has put his injury woes behind him - and he is now looking forward to the 2015 Superstock 600 campaign.

The 19-year-old contested the Superstock 600 class in 2014, but his season was curtailed after a nasty accident at Knockhill when he suffered a badly broken arm.

He was hoping to get back out before the end of the season but the injury was slow to heal.

Now back to full fitness, and with new teammates Charlie King on board, he is raring to go.

Aaron (left) said: “The team name will remain the same as it was ACR Kawasaki last year and, coincidentally, will be known as Aaron and Charlie Racing this year.

“I am changing my race number to 30 and Charlie will sport 76.

“I am really looking forward to getting back in the saddle after such a long layoff and my aim for this year is to complete my races in the points and I will be looking for top 10 results by the end of the year.

“We have a new design on our leathers and bikes and the colours are those of the Lincolnshire flag. Let’s hope it brings us luck.”

Eighteen-year-old Charlie, from Great Yarmouth, has joined forces with Kirton rider.

Charlie found success in the series last year with Team Haribo Starmix, his best result being seventh at Oulton Park.

But shortly after that he suffered a crash which resulted in a fractured shoulder.

But although he missed the next round of the series he rode through the discomfort of his injury scoring more points for his team before leaving them at the end of the year.

The team will undergo some winter testing and hope to take part in the official BSB test at Donington Park on March 26 to prepare for the first round of the championship at the Leicestershire circuit over the Easter weekend of April 4-6.
