James East will race in the 2016 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship, with a new team, FS-3 Racing. Headed by businessman Nigel Snook, the team are ready to make their debut campaign in the New Year.
The Coventry-based team will be officially launched next February, but already has strong foundations for their first season in MCE BSB. They have recently purchased race-winning hardware from PBM; including the Kawasaki ZX-10 machines campaigned by Shane Byrne and Stuart Easton in 2015.
The team is targeting 2016 as a learning experience with Snook’s friend and recently retired Ducati TriOptions Cup frontrunner, Darren Fry playing a key role in guiding the team. The team’s vision to run one bike in their opening season could then develop into a larger operation in their second year as they aim to become established in the premier class.
Team owner Nigel Snook commented: “The team’s philosophy is to bring on new talent and with that in mind we have James East joining us for 2016. He is a superbike rookie and we are giving him the opportunity to progress. We are now looking forward to the start of next year, when we will be announcing further details about the team and our plans for our new venture.”
