Australian Brayden Elliott has secured a full-time opportunity in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) for 2024, stepping up to the premier class as part of a two-rider DAO Racing Kawasaki team in the category.

Elliott makes the transition after a persistent tenure in the National Superstock class, gaining a wealth of experience riding different manufacturers in the series since 2017.

The former Australian Supersport champion partnered with the DAO Racing outfit in 2023 to compete in National Superstock, and was provided the opportunity to step to the Superbike category with the team for the final three rounds. Now, he prepares to contest a full campaign at the highest level within the championship, and will partner Danny Buchan in the DAO Racing program next season.

“Having this secured for next year is everything I’ve ever dreamed of and been moving towards for so long,” said Elliott. “I’m really excited for the opportunity and massively thankful to Sommai, Clarissa, Jonny and the whole team for putting their faith in me and giving me this chance.

“Getting a BSB ride isn’t easy for sure, and I’m looking forward to making the whole team proud, so full focus on the year ahead as I commit one hundred percent as always, so I can do everything in my power to make next year the best year it can possibly be. With the team’s support and also setting some realistic targets for next year, we will approach it in the right way; I will keep progressing and give it my all.”

Elliott is one of four Australians confirmed to be competing in the BSB Superbike class next year, joining FHO BMW’s Josh Brookes, Kawasaki-mounted Jason O’Halloran and Billy McConnell (C&L Fairburn Jackson Racing).
