The British Superbike championship gets underway this weekend at Silverstone.

Andover’s Jake Archer, who won the Moto3 class in 2018, has moved up to race a Moto2 machine in the British GP2 Cup.

Archer will ride for Peter Lucey (Team Kovara Projects), who is a leading specialist commercial roofing and cladding contractor and have been long term sponsor of Jake Archer.

Archer is now back to full fitness after injuring his collarbone in a pre-season training accident in Spain.
