Solihull Editorial 13th Apr, 2022   0

SOLIHULL rider Liam Delves is set to make his debut in the 2022 British Superbike Championship at Silverstone over the Easter weekend.

Delves has made the big step up from the Junior Superstock series to the premier class this year and is riding the Rapid Training CDH Racing Kawasaki.

He attended the official BSB tests at Snetterton and Donington over the last few weeks.

Delves said: “My tests on the Rapid Training Rapid CDH Racing Kawasaki Superbike fuelled by Cheshire Mouldings and Woodturnings Ltd were mega and I have learnt so much in just a few days.

“But I have so much more to learn, it is mind blowing and riding with many of my childhood heroes was surreal.

“To come away from the Bennetts British Superbike Championship tests with a good feeling and a lap time me and the team were happy with such a great start.

“My new team made me feel so welcome on day one and I already feel a part of the family and can’t wait to get to Silverstone for the first round at the weekend.

“Once again thank you everyone who believes in me and made this dream become reality.

“Cheshire Mouldings, Blueprint Joinery Ltd, Dunsley Heat, Borleys Minimix, Bassett Cleansing Environmental Services, MAS-Security.”
