Francis returns for 2020 Bennetts BSB with PR Racing

Joe Francis will be back on the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship grid after singing a new deal with PR Racing to remain with the Liverpool-based team for a second consecutive season.

Francis joined the team to campaign the new BMW S 1000 RR 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.

Francis said: “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.”

“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.”

Team Principal, John Jameson commented: “Joe is a talented rider and we have seen him develop as the season progressed and we now look forward to having continuity for next season with Joe on board.  We have a busy overseas testing schedule throughout the winter months, so that will be important for us, as we take the next step up within the Championship.”
