TAG Racing Honda have completed their four-strong rider line-up ahead of the 2024 season with Dutch rider Jaimie van Sikkelerus joining the team in the BSB Pathway class alongside their Bennetts British Superbike Championship contender Fraser Rogers. Matt Truelove will also return in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship alongside Shaun Winfield.
van Sikkelerus will now join the TAG Racing team for the forthcoming season onboard the BSB Pathway specification CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade after three successful seasons competing in the Quattro Group British Supersport Championship, where he claimed top five finishes including a win at Donington Park last year.
van Sikkelerus said: “I understand that this news may come as a bit of a surprise, but I am extremely thankful to the TAG Racing Honda team for keeping me in the Championship as I am looking forward to competing in BSB so much. I can't wait to jump on the bike and work together with the team at the first test. Thank you to everyone involved and my sponsors for making this possible."
Truelove said: “It’s great to be remaining with the TAG Honda team for the 2024 Superstock season. I really felt like the bike became my own towards the middle end of last season and the equal ambition is still there to be right up at the sharp end. Everyone clearly works hard to achieve results and I'm excited to get going again."
Team Manager Gary Winfield commented: “It’s been great to spend time with Jaimie and we are really pleased to welcome him to the team. After some testing with the BSB Pathway specification at Brands Hatch, we developed a clear strategy to build on and make the right bike for Jaimie. Fraser brings a wealth of experience on our Superbike too and I have every confidence that the Superbike riders will benefit from each other.
“We have bigger and bolder ambitions this year and believe both Matt and Shaun have the determination and the mind set to achieve those goals within the Superstock Championship."
