Maxima BMW retains Allerton for 2020 ASBK campaign
Victorian-based squad reverts to single rider team for this season.
Maxima BMW has retained three-time champion Glenn Allerton for the 2020 Mi-Bike Insurance Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).
The Next Gen Motorsports-operated squad will revert to a single rider team this season, where Allerton will pilot the new 2020 S 1000 RR.
“I’m super excited to be able to line up again with the Maxima BMW crew and go racing again for another season,” Allerton stated.
“With more time spent on the new S 1000RR and fine-tuning things in the off-season, we have got the bike to a point where we are happy with it and believe it will be very close to our competitors when we go racing for this season. I can’t wait to see what we can do this year.”
Team manager Wayne Hepburn added: “I speak on behalf of the team and we are all very excited for the new season and to see how this project goes. I believe with Shane leading the development, our capable team along with the support from BMW Motorrad, and in the capable hands of Glenn, the new bike will be a winner in no time.
“I have to thank all of our team sponsors for sticking by us once again for 2020. It’s time now to get the results they all deserve. Obviously the last few years have been a rollercoaster ride, for both the team and Glenn. Over the off-season we have identified where we were strong and where we weren’t – we have addressed these issues for the new year.”
The first official ASBK test kicks off next week at Phillip Island, while the season-opener is scheduled to take place at the Island on 27 February-1 March.
