Ryan Vickers is one of the youngest riders to line up on the grid in the 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship, with this season marking only his fourth season in the series.
Vickers began his career club racing before moving into the Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship, a Bennetts BSB support class, in 2017 where he finished eighth in the standings in a season that included a victory at Brands Hatch.
The Norfolk-based rider then returned for a second season in the Junior Superstock class, winning the title in style by over 100 points after winning all but two races that season.
The dominating title-winning performance was enough to catch the eye of Bennetts BSB Team Manager Lee Hardy, who signed him for the following season in the Superbike class for the RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki team.
Vickers’ rookie campaign included top ten finishes and he was retained the following season with the RAF Marham team. In 2020 Vickers finished 15th in the overall standings with a best finish of fifth at Donington Park.
Last year he edged closer to a debut podium, finishing in fourth at Thruxton and ended the season 12th overall. This year Vickers switches to the FHO Racing BMW team for the new season.
