Plater moves into management at Synetiq BMW

Steve Plater got his first taste of BSB team management this weekend as he lined up with Synetiq BMW at the Snetterton test.

The former British champion, Isle of Man TT and multiple North West 200 winner, will take on the Team Manager role for the 2022 season, overseeing riders Danny Buchan and Andrew Irwin, alongside technical and engineering teams within the TAS Racing garage.

“I’m relishing the task of managing the Synetiq BMW Motorrad effort on site this season in BSB,” Plater said on the announcement. “They were always the main opposition throughout my racing career, so I’m really looking forward to the season ahead.


“The goal for me is to bring the best out of the whole team this season and also help Andrew and Danny achieve their British Superbike Championship dreams."

“Steve has already been involved with us in the past, as recently as last season,” Synetiq BMW Team Principal, Philip Neill added. "He has been helping the riders, imparting his extensive technical knowledge, but more on an ad-hoc basis. This year we felt that a more structured role would suit everyone involved and having Steve in the garage, taking up that important position, also allows me to concentrate more on the commercial side of the business, which we all know is the lifeblood of any team’s future.

“I have every confidence that Steve will bring a unique and effective skillset, not only in the development of our riders, but also with our TAS Racing prepared Synetiq BMW Motorrad M 1000 RR machinery.”
