The FHO Racing BMW British Superbike team has welcomed a new team sponsor in the form of Wise, a tech company with the mission to improve self-employment. The team behind Wise are no strangers to the BSB paddock; the tech outfit is part of a group of existing companies that currently sponsor FHO Racing’s National Superstock 1000 signing, Alex Olsen.
The 2021 season will see them step up to full team sponsorship, putting the name of their newest venture to the freshly-launched FHO Racing BMW squad. The Wise logo will be added to the team’s striking livery, including the BMW M 1000 RR machines of Peter Hickman and Xavi Fores in the flagship Superbike category. Wise will launch a new web and mobile app in March next year, two months prior to the first round of the 2021 British Superbike Championship in May. Wise has 20 years’ worth of experience working within self-employment and currently services thousands of subcontractors.
The new Wise app is a year in the making and it aims to improve self-employment for the individuals and the companies that engage them. The service is end-to-end from recruitment and onboarding to payments and protects the interests of both parties. More information can be found at withwise.com
FHO Racing has recently completed a successful three-day shakedown test in Portimao, Portugal, allowing Hickman and Fores to gain some crucial winter track time. The team is now back in the UK and ready to begin work on the incredible new BMW M 1000 RR. The riders will return to the track to continue testing in early 2021, when both Superbike stars will be joined by National Superstock 1000 competitor, Alex Olsen.
Wise, Chief Commercial Officer – Dan Richards said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring FHO Racing for the 2021 season. The British Superbike Championship is one of the most exciting race series in the world, and it gives Wise a fantastic platform to increase brand awareness. It’s an exciting time for everyone involved, a new racing team ready for action and at Wise, we’re releasing a new web and mobile app. We’re very much looking forward to supporting the team and seeing what FHO Racing and its great line-up of riders can achieve.”
FHO Racing BMW Team Manager Darren Jones “We’re really pleased to welcome Wise to the FHO Racing family as a team sponsor. It’s testament to their faith in the new team and we’re looking forward to adding the Wise logo to our livery. After our initial winter shakedown test in Portugal, the riders are raring to go in the New Year aboard the new BMW machines. We have lots of work to do ahead of the season start, but I’m confident that we can bring home some good results in 2021 for our newest sponsor.”
