Mission Racing announce 2018 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship line up

Mission Racing has announced their three strong rider line-up for the 2018 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship with Australian Brayden Elliott, Fraser Rogers and Ben Godfrey lining up on the grid onboard the BMW 1000RR.

Elliot made his debut in the championship this year and after completing his rookie season is ready to build on his experience with the Mission Racing team. He is joined by Rogers, who moves to BMW power after a consistent 2017 season with Godfrey completing the line up as he bids for his strongest campaign yet in the hugely competitive class. 

Elliot said: “I feel very confident, hungry and excited to get 2018 underway. I have learnt a lot from my rookie year in the Superstock Championship. Looking ahead to this exciting opportunity I am thankful of how Russell and the team have welcomed me. They have already made the decision to move to a BMW and return to the British Championship a lot easier. Having the opportunity to jump on a bike that has been developed during the past seasons, and having a structured testing schedule definitely boosts my confidence. I know there is still a lot of learning to do this year, but I am excited to be heading into this new season already knowing what to expect, and having already tested the bike.”

Rogers said: “I’m really pleased to be joining Mission Racing BMW for the 2018 season. Russ and the guys are giving me all they can to fight for the 2018 title and I believe we can be competitive at every race with this package. I've only ever ridden the Kawasaki so I'm really excited to ride the BMW and I feel this change was necessary for me. I just want to thank them all for this opportunity and can’t wait to get to Spain and testing.”

Godfrey added: “Firstly I would like to thank Russell and Nicola for giving me this opportunity for the 2018 season. Joining forces with Mission Racing will give me a massive opportunity to prove myself and give the season a really good go. I know the team well; we worked together back in 2015 and kept in touch ever since. Moving back to BMW is definitely a big positive for me as I’ve ridden one for a season and had some great results so I can’t wait to get things started.”
