JD Racing expands to three-rider team for ASBK 2015
JD Racing have announced two development riders joining the team for the 2015 season.
Nic Liminton (15, of SA) and Mark Chiodo (16, of Vic.) have confirmed their positions in the JD Racing team to both compete in the Supersport class of the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).
Regular JD Racing rider, Daniel Falzon (20, of SA), will complete the team of three but steps up to the premier Superbike category in 2015 after wrapping up multiple Australian Supersport Championships in recent years.
Nic Liminton will be making his debut in the Supersport class having spent last year aboard a Moto3 machine in the Spanish Promoto3 Championship. In 2013, Nic won the MRRDA Junior 4-stroke Championship. Unfortunately, at 15 years and 10 months old, Nic is not old enough to enter Round 1 of the ASBK championship and will therefore compete from Round 2.
Mark Chiodo is also making his debut in the Supersport class but instead comes from a background of 250 production racing.
JD Racing has completed successful tests with both Mark and Nic, at Mallala and Phillip Island and looks forward to the year ahead with the three rider team.
