Linfoot returns to BSB with Buildbase BMW in 2012

British Superbike regular Dan Linfoot has signed for the Buildbase BMW squad and will ride Stuart Hicken's factory-supported S1000RR machines next season.

The Yorkshire toast-rack put pen to paper with the Mallory Park-based team just before Christmas and will get his first run out on the bikes in the new year. Linfoot turned down a full-time ride in the Spanish Moto2 series to make a return to BSB. The ex-GP rider's team-mate will be existing rider Barry Burrell and it isn't clear where the team's National Superstock 1000 Champion Richard Cooper has gone.

"It is nice to go into the New Year knowing what I will be riding and when. I've always heard good things about Stuart's team and the squad is always very well turned out. It is the second year for them with the bike so that bodes very nicely for out-of-the-box performance," said Linfoot, speaking to bikesportnews.com this morning.


"All of the bikes should be around equal in British Superbikes next season and to have one that makes around 190bhp out of the showroom is exciting. With the right amount of testing and some good data from last year, I am very hopeful of being competitive straightaway.

"Last year wasn't brilliant for me, but it wasn't the worst either. I enjoyed my time with the SMT guys and I'm still on good terms with Robin (Croft, team owner). Running at the front of the Spanish Moto2 series was a big confidence boost but I wanted to come back to BSB. Unfinished business and all that."
