FHO BMW unveiled their striking new livery today ahead of making their much-anticipated debut with the all-new BMW M1000RR at the Bennetts British Superbike Championship official test at Silverstone.
The turquoise blue and black colour scheme will debut on track today with the team’s line-up of Peter Hickman and Xavi Forés in Superbikes, and Alex Olsen (GB) in the Pirelli National Superstock class. A subsidiary Superbike team in association with Roadhouse Macau will field Brian McCormack.
FHO Racing is spearheaded by Macau businesswoman Faye Ho who declared her excitement and anticipation of the challenge ahead: “I really wanted the team to stand out and it is incredible now to see that dream now become a reality.
“The pandemic has given us extra time to prepare; from having an idea two years ago about setting up a team and starting talks last year, to where we are now and it has been very rewarding and accomplishing.
“The operations and technical staff under the direction of Darren Jones have worked so hard over the winter to establish our engineering base and prepare the motorcycles. Whilst the creative skills and energy of Tommy Hill have ensured we will have one of the strongest team identities in the paddock.
“Of course the real talking will be done on the track, I am realistic of our chances this season considering the depth of competition but I have to have strong ambitions and I would be delighted with podium level race results and if that translates to graduating to the Showdown phase of the championship I would be over the moon.”
