That’s another BSB season done – and what a year it was too...

Everyone at Evotech Performance would like to send huge celebrations to Rich Energy OMG Racing Yamaha rider Bradley Ray, who secured his first British Superbike title at the final round at Brands Hatch. Ray went into the finale in Kent with a huge 66-point lead and secured the crown with a fifth-placed finish in the weekend’s opening race at his home track.

“It’s been unbelievable,” the 25-year-old said. “If you’d said at the start of the year ‘you’re going to be British champion’, I would have bitten your hand off!

“The whole team have grafted all year. It hasn’t been easy from the start, but we put a lot of work in.”

Another man backed by Evotech Performance, Honda Racing UK’s Glenn Irwin, was second in the championship and took two wins at Brands to cap a wonderful season. The Northern Irishman, who also impressed while making his Isle of Man TT debut this year, finished the season ahead of Tommy Bridewell on the Oxford Products Ducati.

However, 2021 champion Tarran Mackenzie sadly missed the end of the season for McAMS Yamaha with a broken leg and all at Evotech Performance can’t wait to see him back in action next year! Mackenzie’s McAms Yamaha team-mate Jason O’Halloran ended the year in fifth place behind the Cheshire Mouldings Kawasaki of Lee Jackson.

Huge shout out to all riders, team members and behind the scenes staff for another year of running the best domestic championship in the world. We’ll do it all again in 2023…
