Rider Line-up
Buildbase BMW Pedigree

The Hawk Racing team is managed by Stuart Hicken, who after retiring from competitive racing worked on Grand Prix bikes for a decade before switching to team management, forming his own team before entering the British Superbike Championship in 1998.

The team immediately racked up the results, winning the Cup championship in their debut season with Phil Giles before they scored their first BSB podium with Glen Richards in 2003 and followed it up with a maiden race win with Scott Smart in 2004.

Hicken's team were victorious in the National Superstock 1000 Championship in 2011 as Richard Cooper won the title.

The team showed strong progress at the start of the season with Linfoot scoring the team their first top ten finish since switching to BMW machinery with a ninth place at Oulton Park. Linfoot was injured at Knockhill and then parted with the team but Peter Hickman replaced him to complete the line up and secured some top ten finishes. Barry Burrell then gave the team their best finish of the season at Brands Hatch with a fourth place.

The final weekend was one where everything just came together. Our BMW S 1000 RRs have been among the fastest and most powerful bikes on the grid, and Barry proved just how capable they are with the highest placed finish BMW has ever taken in BSB, three front row starts and a nail biting battle with the new champion. The team have worked so hard to get this result and I'm proud of them all for getting the RR up where it belongs.
