Insurance firm Bike Devil will rejoin the Bennetts British Superbike grid from Snetterton after signing a deal to partner the MV Agusta Racing UK squad when they come back to the series with Danny Kent.
Dave Tyson’s team will return to the grid with former Moto3 World Champion Kent at the Norfolk circuit later this month with Bike Devil – which is now part of Right Choice Insurance Broking Group – as title sponsor.
Kent is due to test in a week or so before his big comeback and team boss Tyson cannot wait to get cracking.
“I’m very pleased to be able to announce Bike Devil as a partner for our team. The guys there are no strangers to British Superbikes and have immense amounts of enthusiasm for the series and the sport,” said Tyson.
The company’s support is invaluable and will strengthen the challenge that Danny intends to put up from Snetterton onwards. We can’t wait to get started.”
RCIB Managing Director Mike Joseph added: “We have supported teams in the British Touring Car Championship now for many years and with Bike Devil, I am delighted that we can take that same energy and support into this team and complement the great deals in insurance we will be offering to motorcyclists throughout the UK under the Bike Devil Insurance brand.”
RCIB Director and Bike Devil founder Robert Williams concluded: “We felt it was vital to return and get involved once again in motorcycle sport and its community. Working with MV Agusta, and this team, was an opportunity too good to miss.”
