McCormack joins FHO BMW for international roads and BSB

| | TT and Roads

FHO Racing BMW will be supporting former Irish Superbike Champion Brian McCormack in 2021 for the International Roads events and BSB.

McCormack, who was supported by FHO owner Faye Ho during this year’s BSB schedule on a BMW, will continue with the Bavarian brand in the ultra-competitive Superbike series, alongside selected Road Racing events.

As the fastest ever Republic of Ireland rider at the Isle of Man TT, having lapped the Mountain Course at 128.812mph, the Waterford man will be the sole rider flying the tricolour flag in the BSB class.

McCormack will continue to run under the ‘Roadhouse’ banner, a famous sports bar in Macau, which is how the tie-up with Macau native Miss Ho came about.

“I met Faye in Macau when I first started going several years ago, and she kindly offered to support me in BSB last season but has massively stepped that up for 2021,” said MCormack.

“It’s fantastic to be part of such a strong operation and be able to announce our plans quite early.

“Obviously, having no Isle of Man TT is a massive blow, but hopefully, we can ride some Irish events before the BSB programme gets underway and we have everything crossed for the North West 200 still. I can’t wait to get going, this is probably the best opportunity I’ve had in racing.”
