Bradley Ray Switches Teams For His 2021 Season Campaign In What Will Be His 17th Year In Motorcycle Racing.

Brad Ray has been racing motorcycles since 2004, at the young age of six he took part in his first Minimoto race. The Kent rider was winning races in no time. He competed in the British Metrakit 50, 70 and 80’s Championships until 2010. In 2011 he took part in the British 125cc Championships on a Honda RS 125, where he came fifth and sixth in two races.

2012 saw Brad enter the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, his best result was second place in race one at Silverstone, he made a fast start to the season and was unlucky not to have scored a maiden victory in his first season. The following season Brad did get his first win, it was the first race of the season in Austin. After getting the victory in Texas a great season seemed assured but unfortunately the development of the suspension during the season caused some problems for Brad and the team, which hindered-his progress and he finished 11th in the championship standings.

In 2015 Brad entered the British Superbike Championship riding in the National Superstock 600 Class; finishing 13th in the final standings. In 2016 he made the step-up to the British Supersport Class riding the Yamaha YZF-R6, it was a successful step-up for Brad as he ended the season in third place with six wins and six podiums.

Brad was on the move again in 2017, he signed for Buildbase Suzuki in the Superbike Class, he finished 11th overall in the standings. For the following year Brad stayed with the Buildbase Suzuki Team, winning the opening two races of the season at Donington Park. He went on to claim a further three podiums during the season and claimed a showdown place, finishing the season in sixth place in the standings. In 2019 Brad stayed with the Suzuki team for his third consecutive season, it was a mediocre season with just two appearances on the podium and finishing the season in 11th place.

2020 saw Brad make the decision to switch teams and manufacturer, he joined SYNETIQ BMW Motorrad, where he had mixed results for the season; with a best place finish of fifth and finishing the season in 13th place overall.

For the 2021 season sees Brad fielding the all-new BMW M 1000 RR with RICH Energy OMG Racing, he will be riding a long side his friend and team-mate Kyle Ryde. The pair have been racing together since they were young. Both Brad and Kyle are excited to be part of the RICH Energy OMG Racing BMW Team, with one-years-experience riding the BMW S 1000 RR Brad believes he can get the results he knows he is capable of.
