I am really looking forward to this season and a new challenge in the Superstock class. It is something I am excited about; my goal is to challenge for the championship title and I am really motivated for the season ahead. It is nice to be back with Brent and the crew, working with the same team members I had back in 2013 when we won a championship together, and now we want to make it two. I am confident that with the programme and team around me that we can make it happen. I can’t wait to get going in a new class and I am thankful to Brent and all of my sponsors who have put me in this position for the 2022 season.

Cataclean are joining the team and also The Bennetts British Superbike Championship as the Official Fuel Additive Partner to promote their motorcycle product ‘Cataclean Powershot Bike’.

It really is great to welcome Joe back to the Team! We had a tremendous last season together in 2013 when STAUFF first joined us, in a championship battle with current BSB champion Taz Mackenzie to take the Motostar title. Joe has gone on to develop his skills and get good results on the bigger bikes and I am putting back together his title-winning crew to looking forward to a successful season ahead.
I am so really proud that STAUFF UK will continue into its tenth season as Title Sponsor of the Superstock team. Their continued support is invaluable, we all feel a part of the STAUFF family.
Cataclean joining the team is also an exciting piece of news, we’ve seen their involvement in the BTCC along with the growth of their brand. They have a brilliant product range available in LKQ Euro Car Parts and other stockists throughout the world. We look forward to helping them gain traction in the motorcycle world and launch their motorcycle product. with added support from Kawasaki UK it gives a spring board into a great season.

BSB is the leading bike championship for racing enthusiasts and motorbike fans alike throughout the world, we’re really excited to be involved with GR Motorsport for 2022 and we’re eager to see what Joe will bring to the championship. Cataclean have supported Joe since 2015, and we’re hoping his return to GR Motorsport will reignite the synergy for another winning season. This will be our first season as a BSB team sponsor and we’re anticipating a great season of entertainment ahead and look forward to meeting all the BSB fans and guests at circuits.
