Storm Stacey is the youngest rider in the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship, and narrowly missed out on becoming the youngest debutant in 2020 by a matter of weeks following the delayed season.

Last year the Eccleshall-based teenager claimed a career best finish of sixth place at Donington Park; in addition to also securing a first front row start in the second race of the weekend at the penultimate round.

Team LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki Owner Brent Gladwin commented: “I am extremely pleased and excited to extend our agreements with both Storm and LKQ Euro Car Parts. As Storm rolls into our fourth season together, and his third in BSB, he will still only be 18 years old; this is unprecedented in Superbike racing. We have great ambitions for the Superbike team!”
