FS-3 Racing presents new Kawasaki ZX-10RR, fresh rider line-up for 2021 BSB

FS-3 Racing reveals its new Kawasaki ZX-10RR challenger, plus revised rider line-up of Lee Jackson and Rory Skinner, ahead of the 2021 BSB season


FS-3 Racing has become the latest team to reveal its colours ahead of the 2021 British Superbike Championship, its second as the official factory representative of Kawasaki UK.

The team will feature a revised rider line-up for its 2021 BSB campaign with Lee Jackson staying on board after emerging as the best placed Kawasaki rider in 2020, while British Supersport Champion and highly-tipped youngster Rory Skinner is set to make his BSB debut.

They will make use of the all-new KawasakI ZX-10RR, which last week won on its competition debut with Jonathan Rea in the WorldSBK Championship.

This unveiling sticks to a familiar appearance for the FS-3 Racing team with the signature ‘fluoro’ green scheme of the ZX-10RR being adopted. 

“The 2021 FS-3 Racing Kawasaki livery is one that is sure to stand out from the crowd and it’s great to see the iconic Kawasaki green in abundance,” said Kawasaki UK’s Ross Burridge.

“The all-new ZX-10RR has already had a fantastic debut on track at the hands of Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes, so we can’t wait to see what Lee and Rory can do when the British Superbike Championship gets underway next month!” 

From the humble origins of entering a single ZX-10R for the 2016 BSB season, FS-3 Racing have emerged as one of the series’ most engaging success stories.

Showing respectable performance relative to its size initially, FS-3 Racing’s momentum enabled it to break through in 2019 with two wins and a Title Showdown spot coming courtesy of Danny Buchan.

That success, coupled to a disappointing season for Kawasaki’s erstwhile factory representatives Bournemouth (racing under Quattro Plant and JG Speedfit titles), saw FS-3 promoted to ‘official’ status, which in turn swelled line-up to two bikes for the first time last year.

However, it was a tough campaign with Buchan suffering some sizeable crashes from winning positions, leaving Jackson to lead its challenge in eighth overall. 

Though delayed to kicking off at Oulton Park on 25-27 June, the 2021 BSB season will feature more races than ever with all 11 scheduled events being triple-headers of 33 races in total.
