Honda Racing has announced it has signed defending British Superbike Champion Tommy Bridewell for the 2024 season following his decision to leave Paul Bird Motorsport.

The Devizes rider made the shock announcement earlier this week that he would exit the Ducati-backed squad after just a single title-winning campaign.

With no clear indication of where he would be competing in 2024, Bridewell has now confirmed he will head up Honda Racing’s challenge aboard the updated Honda CBR1000RR-R


“I am so excited to join such a prestigious brand, it is every rider's dream to ride for Honda at some point and to bring with me the number 1 plate is just fantastic. 

“The timing feels right, I have achieved my championship goals and now I am entirely focused on defending the title. I am coming here to Honda to do just that, to win another championship.”

Discussing his reasons for joining Honda - which is seeking its first BSB title since Alex Lowes in 2013 - Bridewell says it is his ‘gut feeling’ that the Louth-based squad represents his best opportunity to defend his title.

“I have always made my decisions on instinct and I always follow my gut, the opportunity here at Honda is something that I have always wanted to do and it was an easy decision to make. 

“I’ve chosen to come to Honda as I feel this is the best team to help me defend my championship. Getting to ride a new bike is also really motivating and I am proud to run the number 1 plate for next season.”
