Bennetts British Superbike squad OMG Racing have expanded their supported teams network again today, announcing a partnership with True Heroes.
Formed in 2012 by a serving Royal Navy sailor, True Heroes offers opportunities for wounded, injured and sick UK Service personnel and Veterans to become directly involved in motorcycle racing at British Superbike level to aid their rehabilitation and adjustment to life outside the military.
For 2019 the two organisations will link up, with OMG Racing providing tangible support in the form of a fully prepared National Superstock 1000 Suzuki GSXR1000 race bike for True Heroes Racing and their rider, Jim Walker, to compete on. OMG will also lend technical support to the team at races throughout the season.
“The support OMG Racing are providing us is outstanding. Alan and I had been talking a lot last season about how OMG might be able to assist us. As someone with a military background he was keen to do all he could, but when Alan called me and offered this level of support, I was simply speechless,” said True Heroes chief Phil Spencer.
“Not only having one of their professionally prepared Suzuki race bikes to compete on, but their technical support and assistance on site at every round is brilliant.
“The Superstock 1000 class is an important step for True Heroes Racing on our road towards running in the Superbike class, but also a class of real significance to the whole team in light of the events of 2017. With the support of OMG this year we can return, full time, to this class and continue to develop and expand the team along the way.”
