WSBK: TripleM Honda and Jacobsen split 2 rounds before the end of championship

New Yorker PJ Jacobsen joined the German squad this season in what was their professional debut in Superbike class.

PJ Jacobsen and TripleM Honda team decided to mutually finish their working relationship two rounds before the end of this year’s Superbike championship.

In what was thought to be a start of a successful relationship between the two parties involved, current season turned out to be a disaster due to constant issues, leaving very popular American only in 19th position in the standings with 21 points scored from 22 races of 26 completed, which prompted Matthias Moser, TripleM Honda team manager to end the relationship amicably and give the chance to 25-year old Frenchman Florian Marino, who was racing this year in Stock1000 championship for Pata Yamaha.

What the future holds for PJ Jacobsen it remains to be seen, but the rider himself said for various media earlier in the season that he is looking towards BSB and Moto2 paddocks, trying to get a seat there.
