With the new BSB season a matter of weeks away Luke Verwey is pleased to announce that he will return to the British Junior Supersport grid in 2019 aboard his XG Racing Kawasaki.

Luke, who was a regular top six finisher last year, finished the 2018 edition of the series in seventh overall and goes into 2019 fitter than ever after an intense winter programme that saw him continue working with WorldSBK front runner Leon Haslam.

In addition, Luke is ready to learn from last year and knows that hitting the ground running in the opening races is key to a strong campaign.

Running a stealth black livery for all testing including last year’s leathers and plain Premier helmets Luke will unveil his new colours at Silverstone ahead of the opening round.

Luke Verwey: 
“2019 is looking pretty awesome so far! I can now announce that I will be racing in BSB Junior Supersport again and I can’t wait to get started. The target is to fight for the podium in the opening rounds and I hope for every round. I learned a lot last year and I think with all the preparation I’ve done over the off-season that I can put it all into practice and improve on my results from last year. Testing was great and it’s all looking positive. I am really looking forward to the official BSB test in Cartagena where like last year I will work with Kade to ensure we are ready to hit the front from the word go. My target for the year is to finish inside the top three overall and to increase my profile as much as possible, so I hope everyone will follow my social media channels and check out my updated website!”
