Westmoreland and Kirkham head to Buildbase BMW

Wednesday, November 28 2012

James Westmoreland and Jon Kirkham (pictured) have announced they are to compete with Buildbase BMW during the 2013 British Superbike Championship . The two riders will be hoping their move signals a change in fortunes, especially since this year saw them both come up against less than favourable issues. James parted ways with old team WFR Honda, while Jon suffered an eye-injury which hampered his season. As can be expected, the duo were elated to be starting with a new team. James said;

‘I’m really pleased to be a part of the Buildbase BMW team. I’ve known them for a number of years and now is the correct time to work together. I believe we can put together a strong campaign.’ Jon added;

‘I’m glad to be able to announce that I’ll be with the Buildbase BMW team in 2013 and I’m really excited. I’m looking forward to being back on a BMW after winning the Superstock Championship on the S1000RR in 2010.’
