Teenager Charlie King has joined forces with Kirton rider Aaron Clarke for the 2015 Superstock 600 Championship.

The Norfolk racer found success in the series last year with Team Haribo Starmix, his best result being seventh at Oulton Park before suffering a fractured shoulder.

Clarke contested the Superstock 600 class in 2014 but his season was curtailed after a nasty accident at Knockhill when he suffered a badly broken arm.

He said: “The team name will remain the same as it was ACR Kawasaki (Aaron Clarke Racing) last year and coincidentally will be known as Aaron and Charlie Racing this year.

“I am changing my race number to #33 and Charlie will sport #76.

“I am really looking forward to getting back in the saddle after such a long lay-off and my aim for this year is to complete my races in the points and I will be looking for top 10 results by the end of the year.

“We have a new design on our leathers and bikes and the colours are those of the Lincolnshire flag. Let’s hope it brings us luck!”

The team will undergo some winter testing and hope to take part in the official BSB test at Donington Park on March 26 to prepare for the first round of the championship at the Leicestershire circuit over the Easter weekend of April 4-6.
