Xavi Fores has signed to ride for Honda in the 2019 British Superbike series and will partner youngster Andrew Irwin.
Bringing a wealth of racing experience with him to the British Superbike series, Forés has most recently competed in World Superbikes, where last season he collected five podiums and finished seventh in the championship.
“I am excited to come to England and race in British Superbikes. I have always watched the racing and it looks like a fantastic series with a great fan base,” said the Spaniard.
“To have the opportunity to race in the UK and ride new circuits excites me and I’m looking forward to the challenge. Thank you to Honda for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.”
