BSB: Brad Jones Former Quattro Supersport Title Contender looks to Impress in His Rookie Season
Brad Jones has swapped his Yamaha YZF-R6 Supersport Bike for The All-New BMW M 1000 RR Superbike For his 2021 Season Campaign.
Stalbridge rider Brad Jones started his racing career in schoolboy motocross, he then progressed to the Aprilia Superteen Challenge. In 2015 he joined the National British Superstock 600 class, where he finished the championship in eighth place. The following season he jumped four places and ended the season in fourth place riding for CPE Motorsport. In 2017 Brad switched to the Appleyard Macadam Team where he had a very successful season finishing the championship in third place.
In 2018 Brad took the jump up to the Dickies British Supersport Class, again riding for the Appleyard Macadam team, he settled well to the Supersport class and ended his first season finishing in fifth place in the championship standings. In 2019 Brad was Motorsports rider of the Year after finishing the season runner-up to his team-mate Jack Kennedy. He secured 23 podiums over the 24 race season with a victory at Oulton Park, he also had a wild card entry in the World Supersport Championship. The 23-year-old rider secured silverware at every round and was only just beaten to the title by Jack Kennedy.
For the first couple of rounds into 2020 Brad was slightly on the back foot, but by round six at Silverstone he put the Yamaha YZF-R6 onto the second step of the podium, at round seven at Oulton Park he got his first win of the season followed by another second place. Brad finished the 2020 season in second place runner-up to his then team-mate Rory Skinner.
For the upcoming 2021 season he has made the step-up to the Superbike class having signed a deal with The PR Racing Team where he will be riding the all-new BMW M 1000 RR. The Liverpool-based team are very excited to have a young talented rider join their team for the 2021 season.
Brad is very excited to get going and has a lot of learning to do but that’s all part of the process for the 23-year-old, who is relishing the move up to the Superbike Class as the excitement for the 2021 season is high!
