A move into the main class for 2008 saw him spend several seasons running at the front, taking fourteen podiums and four wins with a best Championship standing of second (just behind eventual World Supersport Champion Sam Lowes).

My Team

James on 2015 season "I'm delighted to be joining JG Speedfit Kawasaki. I've known Mark [Smith-Halvorsen] quite a while and I believe they are one of the very best teams in the paddock. They have the package I need to challenge right up the front, and when I say that I mean the whole package, not just the bike but testing, the technicians, set-up, everything. The team obviously has a full development year under their belt, so I know this is a bike that can win races".
