Xavi Forés completes Honda Racing’s British Superbike Championship line-up 1
Honda Racing is delighted to have signed Xavi Forés to challenge for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship title alongside Andrew Irwin, aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2.

Bringing a wealth of racing experience with him to the British Superbike series, Forés has most recently competed in World Superbikes, where last season he collected five podiums and finished seventh in the championship.

The 33 year old heads for British soil after a successful career in Europe where he claimed the CEV Superstock Extreme Championship in 2010 and 2013, the European Superstock Championship in 2013 and was IDM Superbike Champion in 2014. The Spanish rider has also added MotoGP wildcards to his racing pedigree.

Forés will now get to grips with the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 as the Honda Racing team prepares for the 2019 season with an extensive testing programme ahead of the first round at Silverstone on 19-21 April.

Xavi Forés
I am excited to come to England and race in British Superbikes! I have always watched the racing and it looks like a fantastic series with a great fan base. To have the opportunity to race in the UK and ride new circuits excites me and I’m looking forward to the challenge. Thank you to Honda for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get started!

Havier Beltran
Team Manager

We are delighted to welcome a rider with Xavi’s experience and pedigree to the team. Xavi had an impressive season in World Superbikes finishing seventh and collecting numerous podiums in a competitive series. This now completes our full team line up for next season in both Superbikes (Xavi Fores and Andrew Irwin) and Superstock (Tom Neave) and we can’t wait to get going with both testing and the 2019 season.

Neil Fletcher
Head of Motorcycles – Honda UK

I was excited when we announced Andrew and Tom to the team, but now to have Xavi joining us for 2019 is really exciting! We’re pleased to have attracted a rider with his talent and experience to Honda Racing and I think it’s not only great for the team, but it’s also good for the championship and fans too. I’d like to wish everyone the best of luck for the new season!
