MOTUL is proud to announce a new partnership with FHO Racing.
Whilst newly formed, this racing team has a powerful motorcycling pedigree, and has united with MOTUL to take on the BSB Championship and international road races across 2021.
FHO Racing is an exciting new three-rider, BMW Motorrad-supported team created by Macau entrepreneur Faye Ho. The new team is formed from the foundations of the successful Smiths Racing operation.
Equipped with the highly-anticipated 2021 BMW M 1000 RR Superbike, the FHO Racing team features the world’s fastest road race and previous BSB winner, Peter Hickman, alongside World Superbike podium finisher Xavi Fores and Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship contender, Alex Olsen.
The FHO Racing BMW Team will rely on MOTUL’s Factory Line of specialist products including 300V, the engine oil specially formulated for racing applications providing maximum output while preserving the reliability of the engines for endurance races. This partnership will be crucial as the team develop their 2021 BMW M 1000 RR machine for both the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and the International Road Races.
The power of partnership…
Richard Barrett, MOTUL UK Senior Brand Manager says, “What better way to celebrate 50 years of 300V. Everyone at MOTUL are really excited to be working with FHO Racing. With Peter, Xavi and Alex, the team have a fantastic rider line-up to take on the roads and short circuits of the BSB.
2021 is a landmark year for MOTUL as we celebrate 50 years of 300V. Like our racing partners we strive to improve every year and I can’t wait to see FHO racing testing our market leading lubricants next year and beyond.”
