More bikes, more riders and more events – it’s another packed season for Phil Morris Racing. The Oswestry-based team’s expanded fleet of MotoGP bikes will be exhibited at a host of events with demonstration duties in the hands of some of the sport’s top riders.
The team now boasts no fewer than five MotoGP bikes, the entire fleet from Paul Bird Motorsport. Three of the bikes are PBM machines to full MotoGP prototype spec while the remaining two are Aprilia CRT machines. For good measure, the fleet also now includes the Speed Up Moto2 machine that Sam Lowes rode in 2014, pictured.
With riding duties being undertaken by a squad that includes Steve Plater, Ian Hutchinson, Peter Hickman and Nick Jefferies, the bikes will be in action up and down the UK and beyond with demonstration events including the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which ends on 2 July; the Parade of Racing Exotica at Tonfanau on 2 July; The Sixty Year Hailwood Commemoration at Castle Combe on 8/9 July; Aberdare Park Road Races on 29/30 July; and the Llan Bike Fest on 5/6 August.
Sponsors include Liqui Moly, the German lubricants and additives company involved with MotoGP and Moto2.
