Luke Mossey and the OMG Racing squad have this morning announced they will switch to BMW power for the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike series.
Mossey will remain with the team for a further season after signing a new deal late last week and will have new S1000RRs in his garage for next season.
The team debuted in BSB in 2018 and in only their second season, the team achieved their first race win, their first pole position in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship, and Luke Mossey still leads the way for Suzuki riders in the overall standings.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to ride the BMW S1000RR, it has looked really competitive this season and with a full year of development behind it I’m sure we can have a good run at a Showdown spot in 2020,” said Mossey.
“It’s a new bike for me, but we’ll get some winter testing done on the bike and I’m sure I’ll make the transition as quickly as I settled on the Suzuki this year.”
Team principal Paul Curran added: “We’re looking to take the team to the next level where we want to be, which is fighting for podiums week in week out and definitely in the Showdown.
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to work any closer with Suzuki to further develop the bike. With the BMWs we’re able to purchase the parts that we need the same as any other BMW team and all the parts are available and are an exciting project to get started on.
“I’d like to say a big thanks to Brad and the team at Powerslide Motorcycles for all their support with the GSX-R1000R and I’m sure we’ll continue that relationship in some form, they’ve been fantastic with us throughout our time on Suzukis. Now it’s time for a new challenge for OMG.
“We know that the bikes have a lot of potential because the current BMWs still are using the stock engine and they’re still able to run at the front. As the package develops it’s only going to get stronger and it’s looking like a good bike.”
