PBM British Superbike Championship 2020
VisionTrack Ducati British Superbike Championship Team
Britain’s most successful motorcycle racing team…
PBM is Paul Bird Motorsport, the collective name for Cumbrian businessman Paul Bird’s global motorsport operation which combines motorsport on both two wheels and four.
After a number of years in the World Superbike and MotoGP Championships, the team returned to the British Superbike Championship full time in 2014, which they won, and have since added three more titles to their unprecedented successes, including last year with Scott Redding.
Continuing into 2020 as VisionTrack Ducati with 2019 BSB vice champion Josh Brookes again aboard factory backed Ducati Panigale V4 R, where he is joined by the talented Christian Iddon, the pair will contest the MSV-organised series, which is universally recognised as the most prestigious domestic series in the world which attracts some of the best teams, bikes and riders in the sport.
In addition, 20-year-old Cumbrian-born Frank Bird will continue his racing career in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup as part of The Bentley Motorsport Academy run in partnership with Team Parker Racing as well as continuing his meteoric rise in the world of rallying with occasional events.
Tough Times At Donington For Brookes And Iddon
Defending champions VisionTrack Ducati saw 2020 riders Josh Brookes and Christian Iddon have an eventful day at the opening round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Donington Park today with a fourth place for Iddon the best they had to show for their efforts, which undoubtedly deserved more.
In recent years, the PBM team has added five BSB titles via Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and Scott Redding, a Rider’s Cup crown thanks to Stuart Easton and a host of NW200 and Macau GP successes courtesy of Glenn Irwin. For 2020, former BSB champion Josh Brookes lines up alongside Christian Iddon as they aim for more success on the VisionTrack Ducati.
Rising star Frank Bird continues his path to Formula One as he contests the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup for Bentley as well as challenging for honours in the sport of rallying in the Ford Focus WRC in which dad Paul had so much success.
Ducati Panigale V4 R
After delivering two prestigious British Superbike Championships for Ducati in 2016 and 2017 aboard the Panigale R, the focus for 2019 was on the brand-new, mouth-watering and MotoGP-inspired Ducati V4 R. With a race-bred heritage and bikes once again are supplied directly from Ducati Corse, the factory’s dedicated racing division in Italy, the PBM team dominated the title race, winning 21 of the 27 races and culminating in Scott Redding lifting the crown and team mate Josh Brookes coming a close second. Brookes aims to go one better this season with Christian Iddon also one of the favourites
