Race winner Bradley Ray will switch to the Rich Energy OMG Racing squad for the 2021 British Superbike Championship, joining Kyle Ryde in a fresh rider line-up.

Ray, who won two races in 2018 en route to the Title Showdown aboard the Buildbase Suzuki, competed with Synetiq BMW in 2020 and scored a best finish of fifth but was dropped from the line-up in favour of Danny Buchan and Andrew Irwin.

For 2021, Ray will stay on BMW machinery but switch to the new M 1000 RR sportsbike under the OMG Racing banner alongside 2020 rookie standout Ryde, who won two races in his maiden campaign on a Suzuki.

“I’m excited to be joining RICH Energy OMG Racing and getting to work on the new BMW M 1000 RR. They’re a really welcoming team and ever since they came into the paddock, I’ve been a fan of the family atmosphere that they have. They’re one of those teams who have the right attitude and just want you to enjoy your racing.

“I’ve got a year’s worth of experience on the S 1000 RR and I think that the new bike will just reinforce those weaker areas where we struggled last season. I want to be back fighting for podiums regularly, and after sitting down with Paul and Alan I feel confident they’re investing in all the right places to give me every chance to get back to where I know I can be.

“It’s great to be riding with Kyle, who’s a good mate and I think we’ll both help to push each other forward. I’d like to say a big thank you to all my friends, family and sponsors for all their support, and I can’t wait to get started on this new challenge!”
