What a month I’ve had! After a winter worrying if I would be able to secure a ride for this season I’m pleased to announce that this season I will be racing for the Bathams Racing team in the National Superstock 1000 championship this season. As we headed into the winter months I became aware that in the middle of a global pandemic it was going to be difficult for teams to secure enough funding to see out the 2021 season. I reached out to the followers across my social media platforms and I’m so thankful to everyone that helped me secure the funding for this season.

I’ll be racing on the brand new BMW M1000RR, it’s a new bike for this season but with new aerodynamic upgrades and improved engine performance I think it really is going to be a force to be reckoned with. The bike is still so new we don’t actually have one in the workshop yet so the bike I will be starting my testing on is last years S1000RR, I recently covered the bike on my YouTube channel which can be seen here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA4Z1wvODRc

The season is set to get underway on the 25th of June and I have to say I really can’t wait to start now. I look forward to catching up with everyone next month.
