In 2012, Danny's career progressed into the premier class in the UK, the British Superbike Championship with the MSS Kawasaki team. Danny was promoted to the BSB halfway through the season whilst leading the championship in the Superstock class. An impressive P4 race results in the BSB class during the year being a highlight of the season.

The following year, Danny would stay in the British Superbike Championship for the first half of the season and then compete in the Supersport class to end the season.

Following some challenges, Danny and his team decided to step back into the highly competitive National Superstock 1000 Class for 2014, with aims on becoming British Champion and Danny delivered just that, winning the champion with Morello Kawasaki to become National Superstock 1000 champion of 2014!

Danny returned to the National Superstock 1000 Championship with the aim to regain his British title he won back in 2014. He had a hard-fought season but after many wins, Danny become the National Superstock 1000 British Champion once again in 2017!

Becoming champions again see Danny progress back to the premier class and return to the British Superbike Championship with the Kawasaki FS-3 team in 2018.

A competitive season with great results throughout was rewarded with a number of podiums and see Danny just miss out of the "Shoot Out" finishing P11 in the championship.

This season Danny and the team have been at the very sharp end of the action throughout the year with podiums and at the Knockhill round in June, Danny took his and the FS-3 teams first every BSB victory!

Currently, Danny is well on course to be in the "Shoot Out" and is an impressive P5 in the championship, by far the top independent rider mixing it with the top factory riders.
