Gas Monkey Garage, the global leader in customized cars from Discovery Channel’s hit series Fast N’ Loud, will become the title sponsor of Peter Hickman and FHO Racing at the 2022 Isle of Man TT Races.
Headed by innovative entrepreneur Richard Rawlings, Gas Monkey Garage will utilise the platform of the world’s largest road race to spread the Gas Monkey influence and brand across the globe.
Gas Monkey Garage will showcase the iconic 37.73-mile Mountain Course to a whole new audience via their social media platforms which boast a staggering 20+ million followers.
The new partnership will see the Gas Monkey Garage logos and brand adorn outright lap record holder Hickman’s BMW M1000RR in the Superbike, Senior and Superstock races at the TT, which makes it’s much anticipated return to the calendar after being absent in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With five wins and 14 podiums between 2017 and 2019, as well as the outright and Superstock lap records, 34-year old Hickman – who still holds the fastest Newcomer lap ever around the Mountain Course – will go into the meeting as the undoubted favourite for honours.
