Shakey Byrne signs with Stobart for BSB 2007

Shakey back with former boss, aiming for second title

SHAKEY Byrne has signed for Paul Bird Motorsport to race on the Stobart Motorsport Honda Fireblade in the 2007 British Superbike Championship. Shane 'Shakey' Byrne will be joined by hotshot Tom Sykes. Shakey won the British Superbike Championship for Bird's team back in 2003 onboard a Ducati 998.

Last season, Rutter and Laverty didn't have much luck with the Stobart Fireblades but with Shakey's experience and outright pace, coupled with his solid relationship with team owner, Paul Bird, we can confidently expect him to be challenging for a second title. Tom Sykes is fresh from a good season in the British Supersport class, where he finished third place overall, having notched up eight podiums. The 19 year old Ulsterman could be a dark horse for the season ahead.

Shakey back with Paul Bird. You heard it here first.
