CN Racing to Drop Out of Superstock Series

November 9, 2012

CN Racing, part of Superstock series, have announced they will not compete in any classes next season after a difficult 2012.

Team owners Chris Greenwood and Julia Taylor had assembled a team to realistically challenge for the 2012 Metzeler National Superstock 1000 and 600 Championships but a combination of pre-season injuries and changes in personnel during the season meant they didn’t secure a podium.

The Hebden Bridge-based team considered a very attractive offer from a manufacturer for 2013 but after a period of deliberation, they have decided not to pursue this option and will take a sabbatical for next season before deciding on a possible return in future.

“There are a number of factors which has led to us making the very difficult decision to withdraw from the sport we love. 2012 didn’t live up to our expectations on track and we encountered a number of additional problems also which took away a lot of the enjoyment and that is the real reason we go racing,” said Taylor.

“We had a very good offer to continue but we couldn’t commit fully so we are taking some time out and are going to concentrate on our core business which has taken a back seat recently. We’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each individual member of our team, our product partners and everyone associated with CN Racing for a superb job. 

“We’d also like to extend our appreciation to the marshals, medics, organisers and media as well as fellow competitors and wish them a safe and successful 2013 season.”
