SMITHS RACING BMW PEDIGREE


The Gloucester-based team led by father and daughter Alan and Rebecca, have risen through the ranks of the support classes since their debut in the British paddock in 2010, becoming one of the most successful teams in the Supersport class. 

Smiths Racing joined the Bennetts Superbike Championship grid in 2015 with reigning Supersport champion Billy McConnell, who headed up the team's first campaign in Bennetts BSB on board the BMW S 1000RR.

The Australian scored the team a debut podium finish at Cadwell Park in their first season in the premier class. The team expanded to a two-strong rider line-up for the 2016 season and qualified for the Showdown for the first time in 2017 with Hickman.

Smiths Racing BMW have announced that Peter Hickman will return alongside James Ellison this season aboard the brand-new Smiths BMW S1000RR.

Hickman remains with Alan and Rebecca Smith’s team for a third successive season having finished in fifth place in the 2018 series with a double podium finish at Thruxton and qualifying as a Showdown contender for a second successive season.

Joining him will be experienced Ellison, who has just missed out on the title in the past.

It’s fantastic to get our plans sorted early so we can concentrate all our efforts on the 2019 season. Peter has again done a brilliant job for us both at BSB and on the roads this year, so we are delighted to work with him again next year for a third successive season. James is a top quality BSB rider with huge amounts of experience which will be a massive help in developing the new bike and ensuring both sides of the garage are competitive. There is a refreshing buzz about the impending season within the team and we are really looking forward to testing in readiness for the opening round at Silverstone next Easter. Rebecca Smith, Team Manager
