Lichfield racer Gary Mason has signed a deal to ride for the MSS Colchester Kawasaki team in the 2010 British Superbike Championship.

Mason impressed enough during the Superbike Privateers Cup to earn the ride with his new team.

Speaking after confirmation that he would join Simon Andrews in the team, the Lichfield  rider said:

“This really is an amazing opportunity for me – I’m so pumped to be at MSS Colchester for next season. They’ve done so well this year, Kawasaki are really behind them and the development plans look really good, they’re not sitting back!

“Nick Morgan at MSS really helped get me a Superbike ride as his support in 2000 got me noticed with my Euro Superstock win at Brands Hatch, we won by twelve seconds.

“This year I know it’s a great chance for me and I want to consistently fight with the front runners.”

MSS Colchester Kawasaki Team Owner, Nick Morgan added:

“We think this is a great line-up. Gary had a brilliant season, he dominated the Privateers Cup but actually he battled up front with the guys on top machinery all year long and showed real desire.

“He knows this is a real life line and he’s not going to waste it. We’re actually well ahead of previous years in terms of package, riders and sponsors, maybe now we can enjoy Christmas a bit more!”
