BSS runner-up Ben Currie steps up to WorldSSP on factory Kawasaki

British Supersport standout Ben Currie lands a seat with the factory-backed Puccetti Kawasaki team for the 2022 WorldSSP Championship


British Supersport Championship runner-up Ben Currie will step up to the international stage for 2022 after landing a factory-backed seat at Motozoo by Puccetti Kawasaki for the 2021 WorldSSP Championship.

The dual nationality Australian-German rider has previously competed in the British Superbike Championship but enjoyed the majority of his domestic scene success in the Supersport ranks,

Having pushed Jack Kennedy all the way in British Supersport this season on the Gearlink Kawasaki, Currie now gets his shot on the world stage with the works backed Puccetti team that ran Can Oncu and graduating WorldSBK rider Philipp Oettl in 2021.

"I have been working for a long time to take the opportunity to compete in the Supersport 600 World Championship. For me it is a dream come true and I am looking forward to getting on track for the first tests. 

“I will have the opportunity to continue my work with Kawasaki and this is certainly very positive. In these seasons I have always achieved great results in Supersport 600 with the Kawasaki ZX6R and I am sure that thanks to the support of Motozoo Racing by Puccetti I will have the opportunity to reap a lot of satisfaction.”

He will be partnered with 2020 WorldSSP 300 champion Jeffrey Buis, who becomes the third rider after Adrian Huertas and Tom Booth-Amos to confirm a progression into the WorldSSP class for 2022.
