PBM is the collective name for Paul Bird Motorsport’s global operation that combines three major motorsport championships on both two wheels and four: MotoGP, British Superbikes and International Rallying.
Former British number two behind Colin McRae, Paul Bird finished runner up in the National Championship in 2013 so aims to go one better this year as he contests the BTRDA Series as well as selected other events in his Ford Focus WRC.
Becoming the only British team in MotoGP in 2012, the team has built and race their own machine with the Aprilia-engined PBM. They also campaign a traditional Aprilia ART as a two-man team in the world’s premier motorcycle championship.
With seven British titles to their credit so far, Britain’s top team narrowly lost out on the MCE BSB crown last year so are back on factory-supported Kawasakis with a two-rider team in the world’s best domestic Superbike championship.
