“It is such a crazy feeling knowing I’m British Superbike Champion. I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet. The year has been incredible and my whole team have given me everything and the best bike to do the job on.

“It was really important to me to continue in the same team with the same people and I think it has made a big difference. Everything just went according to plan this year and it really is an amazing feeling.

“I can’t thank everyone enough for their continued support and belief in me to make this happen. It is so special, and I’m almost lost for words.

“British Superbikes always creates great racing and all season I’ve battled with so many different riders and it is a credit to the championship. Thank you for all the memories.”
