FHO Racing BMW are delighted to confirm the return of Joe Francis to the team for the final round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch this weekend (October15/16/17), following his debut performance at Donington Park.
Francis joined the team line-up at the penultimate round, scoring a pair of top ten finishes with a best result of sixth place despite the tricky mixed conditions.
“I am really happy to have been given another opportunity to race with the FHO Racing BMW team at Brands Hatch. I felt like we were making good progress at Donington Park in all conditions, and the extra time on the BMW M 1000 RR will only be a positive for me.
“I learnt a lot from the team at Donington Park, so I am looking forward to moving forward again next weekend and hopefully end the season with three strong finishes. I need to thank Faye and the FHO Racing BMW team for this second opportunity with them.”
Team Owner Faye Ho
“Joe impressed me with his approach at Donington Park; he was working with a new team and new bike, plus he had the changing conditions to contend with and that made it even more difficult, but he worked hard and took two top ten finishes.
“I think with more time on the bike he will improve further this weekend. As a team owner I am happy to see our riders making progress, and that is why I wanted to offer him another chance to ride for us next weekend. Hopefully we can end the season on a high at Brands Hatch.”
