Lee Hardy Racing has revealed it has secured the title backing of VisionTrack for the 2022 British Superbike Championship (BSB) season.

The video and telematics provider has become a familiar sight in the BSB paddock ever since it came on board to title sponsor the Paul Bird Motorsport team, going on to share in Josh Brookes’ 2020 BSB title win on the Ducati Panigale V4 R.

However, after splitting with the outfit - which today revealed Tom Sykes will join Josh Brookes for 2022 with title backing from MCE - VisionTrack will instead join the Lee Hardy Racing effort for this season.

Runners-up in 2018 with Jake Dixon, the team heads into the 2022 BSB season as one of the favourites after landing the signature of the man who beat it to the title four years ago, Leon Haslam.

“I am ecstatic with having secured VisionTrack as the team’s new title sponsor. VisionTrack are a state of the art brand and one, which I am proud to have an association with my team. VisionTrack brings a whole new dimension to my portfolio and one which I will nurture and together we will grow.

“This will be our sixth year with Kawasaki and it’s a relationship that has grown year on year. The team has had some amazing success with the brand and I am pleased we are back onboard the Ninja ZX-10 RR for another season. The Kawasaki is a formidable package within the Superbike class and that brings me on nicely to our new signing Leon Haslam. Not only did I need to negotiate a new title sponsor, I thought I would go the whole way and look at bringing Leon back to BSB to figurehead the team.

“Leon is an incredible talent and someone I have always wanted to work with. His fiery temperament and passion for racing is always on display and I like that. This is an opportunity for Leon to shine again and we are behind him and ready to deliver, he is very driven and wants to win and so do I.”

Following its foray into motorsport with PBM in 2020, VisionTrack’s influence will extend to international racing this year as backer for Michael Laverty’s new Moto3 World Championship team, which aims to give British hopefuls a platform on the grand prix stage.
