Bennetts British Superbike Championship (BSB) and International Road Racing contenders OMG Racing have today announced an exciting link with BMW S1000RR performance parts specialists alpha Racing, who will join the team as technical partners.
Since the launch of the BMW S 1000 RR back in 2009 and the related entry into the Superbike World Championship, alpha Racing has worked closely with BMW Motorrad. The S 1000 RR specialists are the first port-of-call when it comes to high-quality performance parts and services for professional circuit use. For the 2019 S 1000 RR, alpha Racing develops and manufactures high-quality racing components in close cooperation with BMW Motorrad Motorsport (Official Partner of BMW Motorrad Motorsport). In the international racing scene, alpha Racing acts as Technical Supplier of the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team as well as numerous other BMW Racing Teams.
OMG Racing joined the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2018 and have quickly grown into paddock favourites – taking their first win in the series in just their second season at Silverstone. In 2020, they line up in BSB with the returning Luke Mossey and former Moto-GP star Héctor Barberá, with Aussie ace Billy McConnell representing the team in Superstock 1000.
OMG also recently announced that in 2020 the team would make its debut on the International Road Racing calendar, competing at the Northwest 200 and the Isle of Man TT, with 2013 Lightweight TT winner James Hillier lining up alongside David ‘Davo’ Johnson, who stormed to his maiden TT podium in the 2019 Superstock race.
Team Principal Paul Curran welcomed the official link with alpha Racing and the support it will bring ahead of the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship;
