Jenny Tinmouth will make a welcome return to the British Superbike Championship paddock with a move into the National Superstock 1000 class with Phil Crowe Performance.

Tinmouth – the fastest female rider at the Isle of Man TT - became the first woman to compete in the BSB class in 2011 when she made her debut aboard the Splitlath Aprilia before setting up her own Two Wheel Racing team and racing a Honda between in 2012 and 2014.

Scoring her first points in 2013, she also hit the headlines in 2015 when she was called up to join the factory Honda Racing team alongside Dan Linfoot and Jason O’Halloran.

Since then Tinmouth has maintained a lower profile but will make a bold racing return at Superstock 1000 level in 2020 aboard a BMW S1000RR

“I’m delighted announce that I’ll be racing on a Phil Crowe Performance BMW S1000RR in the National Superstock Championship with the support of the Ashcourt Group this season and I’ll be changing race number to 25.

“The bike is being prepared by the fantastic team at Crowe Performance and using funds from my Go Fund Me I’ve sneaked myself onto a test with the crew at Jerez in Spain this coming weekend.  I have to say massive thanks, as always, to everyone who has donated as you got me to this point. 

“I’m super excited and can’t wait to get some laps in now! The bike will be pretty standard on the test but it’s just for me to get some laps in before it is fully race prepared back at the Crowe workshops.

“I’m really grateful to Crowe Performance for the opportunity to utilise their brand new BMW race bike for the season and to Ashcourt for their support. I hope we have a great season and I can’t wait to reveal our bike design once we are ready to unveil it before the first round at Silverstone.

“I’m looking forward to announcing some new sponsors soon too and I still have sponsorship opportunities available, but for any enquiries you can contact twr@jennytinmouth.com.”
