Milwaukee BMW riders Josh Brookes and Karel Abraham unveiled the colours in which their S1000RRs will run in this year’s World Superbike Championship during a bunfight at Phillip Island.
The livery features logos from iconic motorsport sponsors Gulf Oil as well at the main power tool title backers and team owner Shaun Muir said he was proud of what had bee achieved in such a short period of time.
“It’s a proud moment for the team and our sponsors to unveil the bikes and riders to the wider public here at Phillip Island. The build up to this point in time has been tremendous. My team and riders have faced every possible challenge in such a short period of time. Logistically and technically we have ticked every box,” said Muir.
“In 14 weeks we have gone from a domestic championship winning team to World Superbike contenders. With just six problematic test days behind us, we hit the track here at Round 1 in Australia. It’s clear and obvious we are on the back foot in terms of on track performance, however I have every faith in the team and especially Karel and Josh that they will start to get the feel and understanding of the Milwaukee BMW 1000RR and results will follow. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for their support in this new exciting project.”
