OMG Racing has confirmed Luke Mossey will remain with the team for a second consecutive season to become the first announcement of their 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship campaign.
Mossey has been a top ten finisher throughout this season, including a best result of fourth-place at the opening round of the season. A previous race winner in Bennetts BSB, Mossey is pushing for a strong end to the year, in a bid to fight for a place in the 2020 Showdown.
Mossey said: “I’m really happy that I will be staying with OMG Racing for the 2020 season. I believe we’ve had a good year on the Suzuki GSX-R1000R, which has been a difficult bike this year at times. I’ve got fantastic people around me in the team and I’ve built a great relationship up this year with the guys so I’m really looking forward to seeing what next season brings.
“Obviously, we started the season out so well at Silverstone and showed that we have the ability to push on for bigger and better things. Next season we can hopefully have results like those more often and really repay the team for all the hard work they put in. Thanks to the team and to all my sponsors for the support this year, now the aim is to push for a couple more good results and to start 2020 in the right way!”
OMG Racing Team Principal Paul Curran added: “We are happy to have Luke on board for another season, I’m looking forward to building on what we have developed as a team this year. Coming into 2019 Luke was always a rider we wanted to bring to the team due to his experience and racecraft, plus his previous race victories gave real backing to the goals we set out for ourselves when we first kicked off as a team for the 2018 season.
“It’s been a tough season for Luke so far as the pace has been there to run in the top six but there has been a few component failures that cost the team some points and a couple of on-track incidents that we could have done without, but as they say, that’s racing. 2020 is a new year and we’ve made good progress as a team, so I have no doubt that we can continue that into next season.
“We have a bike development plan in place for over the off-season and will look to start the championship as strong Showdown contenders in 2020.”
OMG Racing Founder Alan Gardner concluded: “Luke’s been a consummate professional since joining OMG, I think we’ve really helped him get back to the positive and happy rider which he was when he made it into the Showdown in 2016, it’s just a matter of time before he’s on the front row week-in, week-out.
“He’s been consistent all year and with a bit of better luck, we could have been looking at the showdown ourselves with him this season. It’s great to see the smile back on his face though, not just for the team and himself, but for all the whole OMG Family. We’re confident that Luke can be back on the podium in 2020!”
The final round of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship Showdown takes place at Brands Hatch on October 18/19/20. For more information and to book visit www.brandshatch.co.uk
