Hutchy returns to Superstock action with all-new Edwards 1902 BMW race team

Sixteen-time Isle of Man TT winner Ian Hutchinson will return to the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship this season after joining the newly-launched Edwards 1902 BMW team to campaign the 2020 BMW S 1000 RR.

Hutchinson will be back on the Superstock grid for the first time in three years when the season gets underway at Donington Park on August 7/8/9 and is relishing the opportunity to battle onboard the SMR-prepared BMW.  

Hutchinson said: "It’s been a long time talking about this new project, so to head up and see the team and the bike in its colours is exciting. It’s been three years since I rode in the National Superstock class, so it’s a bit of an unknown again for me but I'm hoping that we can be competitive right from the off.

“At this stage it’s hard to gauge where we will be at having comeback from injury quite a few times and it’s not until I jump on the bike we can do that. In 2017 I was able to be competitive so if I can pick up from there I think we will be on for a good season." 

Team Manager Richard Arundel commented: “After what has been a difficult and uncertain time for everyone in racing as well as business, we are very pleased to finally be able to announce our plans and go racing for the coming season.

“We are delighted to be working with Ian Hutchinson. Hutchy needs no introduction from me as his record speaks for itself but his dedication, commitment and fighting spirit over his racing career is something we all take great inspiration from.

“I need to say a huge personal thank you to Shaun Muir, BMW and the team at SMR for their professionalism in providing us with a great package and finally to all of our sponsors for sticking with the project in these challenging times. We now look forward to going racing, getting some great results and putting a few smiles on faces.”

The Edwards 1902 BMW team would like to extend a huge thank you to all the sponsors (Edwards, SGS, Haith Group, Trucklinks, Lucas Machinery, SMR, HEB, Akrapovic, K-tech suspension, Carbonin).
