Bennetts British Superbike Championship debutants in 2018, OMG Racing burst onto the scene and have gone from strength to strength. Returning rider Josh Elliott is joined by BSB Showdown alumni Luke Mossey in the British Superbike series, with Billy McConnell fronting the team’s Superstock 1000 challenge. Today OMG Racing is delighted to announce their support of the True Heroes Racing team under their #SupportedByOMG scheme, which also lends support to Junior Supersport rider Chloe Jones.
The unique race team, formed in 2012 by a serving Royal Navy sailor, offers opportunities for wounded, injured and sick UK Service personnel and Veterans to become directly involved in motorcycle racing at the British Superbike Championships to aid their rehabilitation and adjustment to life outside the military.
For 2019 the two organisations will link up, with OMG Racing providing tangible support in the form of a fully prepared National Superstock 1000 Suzuki GSXR1000 race bike for True Heroes Racing and their rider, Jim Walker, to compete on. OMG will also lend technical support to the team at races throughout the season.
Alan Gardner – OMG Racing Team Owner “As someone with a military background, I was amazed by what True Heroes Racing have achieved and just had to find a way in which we could assist them. This link up enables OMG to support in some way some of those who have served our country and continue our philosophy of breaking the mould. The opportunity to be associated with the inspirational True Heroes Racing team was an easy decision for all of us at OMG and we look forward to helping them as much as we can with a new chapter of their story.”
Phil Spencer – True Heroes Racing Founder & Team Principal “The support OMG Racing are providing us is outstanding. Alan and I had been talking a lot last season about how OMG might be able to assist us. As someone with a military background he was keen to do all he could, but when Alan called me and offered this level of support, I was simply speechless. Not only having one of their professionally prepared Suzuki race bikes to compete on, but their technical support and assistance on site at every round is brilliant.
The Superstock 1000 class is an important step for True Heroes Racing on our road towards running in the Superbike class, but also a class of real significance to the whole team in light of the events of 2017. With the support of OMG this year we can return, full time, to this class and continue to develop and expand the team along the way.”
