Hickman gets late call for BMW World Endurance team at Le Mans 24-Hours

Reigning Isle of Man TT lap record holder Peter Hickman has received a late call up from the official BMW World Endurance team for this weekend's Le Mans 24-Hour.

Hickman will be the fourth rider on the #37 BMW S1000RR joining Kenny Foray, Ilya Mikhalchik and Markus Reiterberger at short notice.

“I’m really excited to be part of the official BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team this weekend in Le Mans”, said Hickman. “The team is fighting for the world championship and I am privileged to have been asked to contribute to the team.


"I have raced at three Le Mans 24-hour races before and have also raced at Slovakia, Suzuka and Qatar. So I’m not new to endurance and have always enjoyed the experience. I can’t wait to get out on the bike!”

Hickman and BMW have enjoyed success together for many years. The 33-year-old has won four races at the Isle of Man TT on the BMW S 1000 RR and has also won the Macau Grand Prix on three occasions.

Hickman has set multiple world records at the Ulster Grand Prix and is officially “The World’s Fastest Road Racer”. The Englishman has also enjoyed success on the racetrack with his regular team, Smiths Racing.

In the British Superbike Championship, he has secured one of the six coveted places in the Showdown for the title in each of the past three years. He also rode for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team at Donington Park in WorldSBK in 2019.
