Valentine returns to British Superbikes

Jack Valentine returns to the British Superbike paddock full-time this weekend, as he joins forces with the Halsall Kawasaki outfit. Valentine spent the weekend with the team at Oulton Park and accepted an offer to join the team on a full-time basis in a managerial capacity.

The Bolton based team, who have podium credentials in the British series, currently run youngster Harry Hartley on the Kawasaki ZX10R, someone Valentine believes to have great potential.

“Martin and I have been in touch a lot over the last few months and he asked me to come on board as Team Manager,” Valentine explained. “What he wanted and was offering worked for me. It’s the chance to come into the team and give them the benefit of my experience, working and doing things my way to get the best out of everyone.

“I spent time with them at Oulton and I’ve been impressed with how they work. The crew are great and Harry is looking like he has the talent needed to become a top Superbike rider. I’m really looking forward to getting started with the team. I’m probably going to move myself into the unit early this week and then plan some testing ahead of Snetterton, so we can get Harry feeling more confident before the next round.”
