Jordan and Frank Bird Jnr - the children of Paul Bird - say they are excited about having the chance to keep their father, Paul Bird’s, memory alive by confirming Paul Bird Motorsport’s entry for the 2024 British Superbike Championship.

After months of uncertainty, PBM has confirmed it will enter a single Ducati for the 2024 BSB season for Glenn Irwin, who finished runner-up for the multiple-winning outfit to team-mate Tommy Bridewell last season.

PBM’s run to a ninth BSB title was overshadowed by the sudden death of its enigmatic founder and owner Paul Bird in September 2023.


Though the team went on to complete a 1-2 finish in the overall standings, it remained unclear as to whether PBM would continue beyond 2023. However, after a re-organisation of the management structure and a relocation from Cumbria to Preston, PBM is ready to press ahead.

We are delighted to confirm that the PBM team will be back on the grid this season,” read a joint statement from Paul Bird’s daughter Jordan Bird and son Frank Bird Jr. 

“It has obviously been a real emotional rollercoaster for us and we are so proud of what the whole team achieved last year, ending the season on a high with a one-two in the standings.

“The PBM team remains fully committed to the championship and after a lot of uncertainty over the last few months we are delighted that Glenn returns as we begin the next chapter for PBM. 

“He has a long-standing history with the team – from making his Superbike debut, to a first podium and his first race win in the championship. We hope that together we can add a Championship title to that this season!

“We want to take this opportunity to thank our partners and fans for their continued support and we are now looking forward to the future of PBM and keeping Dad’s memory alive.”
