R&R Racing announce Owens to complete 2021 Superstock 600 team

R&R Racing have announced Michael Owens will complete the team’s 2021 Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship line-up, joining Dan Brooks ahead of the start of the season.

Owens will make his debut in the series this year onboard the team’s Yamaha R6, after winning the 2019 Ulster Supersport Cup.

Owens said: "I couldn’t imagine a better start to the 2021 season and a better 21st birthday present, than receiving the opportunity to be able to work with a successful team such as R&R Racing. I can’t thank everyone at R&R Environmental Services and Treatment Plant Parts R Us enough for this once in a lifetime opportunity and learning experience. This has always been the dream from day one of my racing career and to be able to take an opportunity like this and to join the grid is so surreal. 

“I know there may be challenges ahead such as learning the new circuits, but I am willing to rise to the challenges. With the expertise that my Dad, Phelim Owens, can share with me from his success at short circuit racing and road racing, I have no doubt that we can help to push me to the rider I want to be. I can’t thank everyone enough who has supported me throughout my career until this day. I definitely wouldn’t be here without them and am so thrilled to be joining Team R&R Racing.”

Joint Team Owners Caroline Reeves commented: “We are incredibly happy to announce that Michael will be joining our team for his debut season in the BSB paddock. We are really looking forward to getting the season underway now, and we are excited about our first season of running a two-strong rider line-up on Yamahas.”
