EDGEWATER rider Sam Clarke has confirmed his attendance at the British Superbike Championship.

Following his supersport runner-up performance at this year’s Australian Superbike Championship, Clarke will join fellow competitor and Australian supersport champion Brayden Elliot as part of the CF Motorsports Team.

Elliott will be the first rider ever to compete with CF Motorsports in the superstock 1000 championship, while Clarke will gear up for a season on CF Motorsports’ Yamaha R6 in the supersport category.

Clarke said he was pleased to continue his road racing career by taking the leap from national road racing in Australia to the UK.

“I’m looking forward to a successful future in the British Championship after a hard fought year in the national Australian series,” he said.

“It is a great opportunity to jump into a competitive championship and I think now is the best time to go over there and put everything that I have learned into practice to progress my career.”

The championship will start on March 31.
