BSB: Rory Skinner Makes his Return to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship with TAS Racing.
Former British Supersport champion Rory Skinner has signed for TAS Racing for his 2024 season campaign.
Rory Skinner is back in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship as the young Scot joins the TAS Racing Team as they celebrate their 25th season of racing in 2024. The Northern Irish Team unveiled a new look for their BMW M 1000 RR ahead of the new season, revealing Cheshire Mouldings as their new sponsor.
Skinner needs no introduction; the 2020 Quattro Group British Supersport Champion impressed in his rookie season in Bennetts BSB, scoring podium finishes in his debut campaign before lining up in the Showdown in his second season.
Skinner then launched into the Moto2 World Championship and now he will join TAS Racing for 2024, bringing former MotoGP crew chief Stuart Shenton to the Team, having previously worked together in both Bennetts BSB and Moto2.
Rory Skinner said:
“I’m really looking forward to getting started with the Cheshire Mouldings by TAS Racing BMW team. The crew that Philip Neill has put together for me is very exciting, and to be able to bring my crew chief Stuart Shenton from Grand Prix is a major plus. Seeing the bikes for the first time at the launch just made it feel that bit more real, and I’m sure everyone will agree, they look absolutely superb. It’s going to be an exciting season coming back to BSB and being able to race in front of the British fans is always very special. I can’t wait to get underway.”
John Carney Managing Director, Cheshire Mouldings commented:
“We are delighted to increase our sponsorship with TAS Racing, becoming title sponsor in BSB for the 2024 season. Everyone here is excited to have Rory onboard in the Superbike class, as we have been supporting him for the past few years. He shares our values to ‘Be the Best’ in his chosen profession, so we are confident he can secure some podiums this season. Davey Todd is a former 1000cc Superstock champion, so we are looking forward to seeing him race at the sharp end in British championship, and also in our supporting role at the International Road Races.”
Philip Neill Team Principal, TAS Racing commented:
“It’s been the usual winter rollercoaster getting everything in place, and with 2024 being our 25th year of competition under the TAS Racing banner, we wanted to make sure we did everything possible to get back where we belong – at the sharp end of all competition.
“First of all let me welcome our new title partners for 2024, Cheshire Mouldings. Long standing supporters of two-wheel motorsport, we did have a lower level association with them last year, but we look forward to flying their brand livery this season in both British Superbike and the National Superstock series.
“In the Superbike class we are delighted to have been able to bring Rory back to BSB where I think everyone would agree, he was about to become a big star before he left for Moto2. We’re delighted he has chosen TAS Racing, where he will campaign the Cheshire Mouldings BMW M 1000 RR. And it’s fair to say he has already made a big impression on us with his commitment and desire. I’m sure it will be an exciting and enjoyable year ahead for us all.”
