Joe Francis will be back on the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship grid after singing a new deal to remain with PR Racing for a second consecutive season.
Francis joined the team to campaign the new BMW S1000RR this season and has continued to build momentum during the year, including topping the opening free practice session in damp conditions at Brands Hatch last weekend.
“I am really excited for next year. We have made some great progress with the bike in the latter half of this season, so getting a full winter test program and another season on the latest bike will be good for myself and the team and help us move forward with the BMW,” said Francis.
“My first full year in BSB has been great, I have learnt a lot and my confidence on the bike grew after each round. The aim for 2020 is to continue building on the progress we have made and to start collecting those championship points as early as possible.”
