Xavi Forés completes Honda Racing’s British Superbike Championship line-up
Honda Racing is delighted to have signed Xavi Forés to challenge for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship title alongside Andrew Irwin, aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2.
Bringing a wealth of racing experience with him to the British Superbike series, Forés has most recently competed in World Superbikes, where last season he collected five podiums and finished seventh in the championship.
The 33 year old heads for British soil after a successful career in Europe where he claimed the CEV Superstock Extreme Championship in 2010 and 2013, the European Superstock Championship in 2013 and was IDM Superbike Champion in 2014. The Spanish rider has also added MotoGP wildcards to his racing pedigree.
Forés will now get to grips with the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 as the Honda Racing team prepares for the 2019 season with an extensive testing programme ahead of the first round at Silverstone on 19-21 April.
