McConnell returns with FS-3 Kawasaki for 2017 MCE BSB assault

Wednesday, November 16 2016

FS-3 Racing has announced Australian Billy McConnell will return with the team for the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship and have also revealed a new title partnership with Quattro Plant for the forthcoming season.

FS-3 have joined forces with Quattro Plant ahead of the new season and the team will also continue their association with Kawasaki for their second year in the championship, already beginning their preparations with the ZX10-R ahead of further upgrades in the New Year when the new RR homologation model becomes available.

Quattro Plant have a long association within the British Championship paddock and this new partnership continues their presence into 2017.

McConnell said: "This is really exciting for me to return with the team for next season. We have some great work going on behind the scenes and I am ready to move forward again in 2017. It is so important to have consistency in this championship and that is what we need to take into next year.

"I want to be aiming for consistent top ten finishes with top fives too and then we will see what happens. We want to come back stronger and together we are working hard to come out fighting from round one."

Team owner Nigel Snook commented: "We learnt a lot during our first year in the MCE BSB Championship and plan to put that experience to good use next season. I'm delighted that the team has attracted backing from Quattro Plant, who are great supporters of the series.

"Billy is looking forward to a winter of hard training in preparation for riding our new Superbike and building on the progress he made with us this year.

"James knows that next year's Superstock Championship is going to be really competitive, particularly with increased manufacturer interest, but we are confident he will be running at the front. Towards the end of the season we hope to be able to enter James as a wildcard on a second Superbike too.

"As a team, we can't wait to get our testing programme started now ready for our second season."
