FHO RACING BMW SIGN RYAN VICKERS ALONGSIDE PETER HICKMAN FOR 2022 BENNETTS BSB CHAMPIONSHIP CAMPAIGN

FHO Racing BMW are delighted to announce the signing of Ryan Vickers for the 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship. The 22-year old contender will complete the team line-up alongside six-time race winner Peter Hickman.

Vickers joins the Louth-based team for their second season in the Championship as they prepare to build on their successful debut campaign, which featured five podiums, including two victories for Hickman and a final championship finishing position of fifth.

Former National Superstock 600 champion Vickers looks ahead to next season with the FHO Racing BMW team following some strong performances in 2021.  Despite finishing twelfth in the final standings, the Thetford-based contender narrowly missed out on a debut podium finish with a pair of fourth place results at Thruxton and set the fastest ever lap of Cadwell Park in August.

Vickers said: “I’m extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity to ride with FHO Racing BMW. During the 2021 championship, it was clear to see Faye’s dedication and commitment to the team and I am really looking forward to joining them for next season.

“Hicky had an amazing season with FHO Racing this year and it will be a privilege to work alongside him within such a professional environment. Not only am I there to learn, but I’m also there to win and I feel that this is my chance to move forward.

“I have learnt so much in my short time in BSB and I feel this opportunity has come at the perfect time for me to make this next step. The BMW M 1000 RR is a proven race winner in the championship so I can’t wait to test it for the first time. I am now excited about starting work with the team to prepare for the 2022 Championship.”

Team Owner Faye Ho commented: “I am really happy to welcome Ryan to the team for next season, he is one of the youngest riders on the BSB grid, but already has three full Superbike seasons under his belt and I feel that with the right environment, he can develop into a regular podium contender.

“I like to be able to give riders the opportunity to prove themselves and I feel that this season he showed his potential on several occasions, but was just a little bit unlucky too that he didn’t get that first career podium finish.

“As a team, we now have a season’s worth of experience with the new BMW M 1000 RR and that combined with Peter’s knowledge and some new input from Ryan should be a fantastic mix.”
