Youthful Australian Ben Currie has secured third in the Supersport category of the MCE British Superbike Championship (BSB) after a surge of positive results in the second half of the season.

Currie wrapped up the year last weekend at Brands Hatch, charging his way to 3-4 results to close out the enduring championship for 2017.

The Gearlink Kawasaki rider said he’s experienced a massive amount of emotions this year, which saw him claim multiple race wins, revealing something clicked mid-way through the series that enable to land inside the top three.

“It’s been a massive amount of emotions this year,” Currie expressed. “It took a while for me to settle into the team and mid-season we sat down and sorted everything out. We had to build faith in each other throughout the season and mid-year something just clicked.

“I changed and the team changed and it all just worked so well after that. Michael and Norma are some of the greatest team owners that you could ever ride for. I worked really hard, training, focussing and it’s been a fantastic end to the season and the wins and podiums started to come quickly.”

Currie will now return home to Australia for the off-season, and while his plans for 2018 are not yet finalised, he’s hopeful of returning to the British championship.
