Quigley parted company with the team a few weeks ago leaving the team with the task of finding a second rider.
Team owner, Howarth stepped up to the ride when Quigley was out through injury at Oulton Park however the former professional rugby player failed to finish in both races. Whilst the team originally did look for a replacement rider, it was eventually decided that Howarth should ride the ZX10R for the remainder of the season in order to help with development.
A team statement statement read: “After much deliberation team owner Michael Howarth has decided to ride for the rest of the BSB 2013 Season. The team looked into a possible replacement rider and after searching worldwide a meeting was held between management and the decision was made that it would be better to have Michael developing the bike keeping the team as is for the remainder of this season.”
