Peter Hickman, who has previously been a long-time Smiths Racing rider, is enthusiastic about approaching the new season with FHO Racing and excited to begin the development of the new M machine for both short circuits and the roads. Hickman is a previous BSB race winner with BMW and returns for 2021 motivated to return to the top step of the podium.
The Lincolnshire rider will also continue to compete in the major international road races and after the cancellation of the road racing events this year due to the pandemic, the Isle of Man TT lap record holder and five-time winner will be looking to add to his impressive record in 2021.
“This is an exciting time for me, the team and I think racing in general as we gain a passionate new team owner in Faye. I’ve known Faye for a few years as a generous supporter of racing in Macau and most importantly she wants to win! I’ve had an awesome four years with the Smiths Racing team, we’ve grown together as a group, been successful in BSB and on the Roads, so now I think we can build on that and take it to a new level. After such a bad year globally, it’s so positive to have a new team and sponsor enter the arena.”
