PBM Team Up With Fuchs Silkolene For Another Title Bid

Monday, March 27, 2017

Defending MCE British Superbike Champions, Paul Bird Motorsport and Be Wiser Ducati, will continue their longstanding partnership with leading lubrication company, FUCHS SILKOLENE, in their bid to retain the title this season.




The Stoke-on-Trent based company has been associated with the Penrith team for most of their tenure in motorcycle racing, which included John McGuinness winning the 250cc British Championship for Paul Bird’s squad back in 1999, and numerous successes since.


This season will see FUCHS SILKOLENE again involved in assisting Londoner Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and Ulsterman Glenn Irwin aboard the factory-backed Be Wiser Ducati Panigales for a second successive season, having scored 18 wins and podiums between them at BSB level in 2016.


Joost van Genderen, Head of Motorcycle Division, FUCHS SILKOLENE: “FUCHS SILKOLENE are extremely proud to continue our partnership with PBM and Be Wiser Ducati. Over the years, we have worked closely with them to continuously develop the very best performing engine oils, across all different makes and manufacturers, to ensure they can compete for podium positions. We have been able to use this invaluable race experience to relate straight back into continuously developing our own FUCHS SILKOLENE range of 100% dedicated motorcycle engine oils and associated products. 2017 is shaping up to be another competitive season in the BSB championship race and look forward to working closely with the PBM team. We want to work with the very best teams in the BSB paddock and working with Paul and his team means that we will be competing for the championship again this season.”


Paul Bird, Team Owner: “PBM and FUCHS SILKOLENE have a long and enviable history of success and it goes without saying that we are delighted our partnership is continuing into 2017. We pride ourselves on delivering the results and we managed to do that again last season with both ours andShakey’s fifth BSB title. We plan on making that six this year so to have the backing of FUCHS SILKOLENE is a vitally important factor in order to maintain our exemplary reliability record.”


The official 2017 livery of the team was unveiled at this week’s official MCE BSB test at Donington Park which saw Shane Byrne post second fastest time in the damp conditions with Glenn Irwin sixth in the BSB class.
