Ellison stands in for OMG Racing at Assen

James Ellison will join the OMG Racing Suzuki team at Assen this weekend, completing a three-strong rider line up at the next round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

Ellison will join Luke Mossey and Billy McConnell, who is targeting a return from injury this weekend, for the tenth round of the season after recently testing the GSX-R1000R. The multiple race winner will ride the GSX-R1000R in place of Josh Elliott who will sit out the Assen event.

Ellison said: “I’m very excited for the opportunity to ride the OMG GSX-R1000R at Assen, Paul and the team are great guys and we’ve met a few times this year through our connection to Powerslide Motorcycles. I know the bike is competitive and had the opportunity to ride a stock bike GSX-R at Donington track day, so I should settle quickly and hopefully we can have two good races this weekend.”

OMG Racing Team Principal Paul Curran commented: “Big thanks to James for standing in for us on short notice, he’s a great rider with heaps of experience in the Championship. After working with him a couple of times this season through Powerslide Motorcycles, the opportunity arose. James is a great rider and we look forward to seeing how he does on the bike at Assen.”

The final round of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship Showdown takes place at Brands Hatch on October 18/19/20. For more information and to book visit www.brandshatch.co.uk
