Fastest newcomer in TT history Peter Hickman leads GB Moto Racing’s challenge at international road races in 2016.
Peter is all set to pilot factory backed ZX10R Kawasaki’s in superstock, superbike races at North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix and TT 2016.

It would not be a surprise to anyone if Peter seals his first TT Races podium finishes, next year.
GB Moto Racing endured this year a challenging first year of pure road racing action.
In my opinion they have a lot to improve on to get to the sharp end at the internationals, but one things for sure in Peter Hickman they have the rider that can bring them the pure road race success that they are targeting.
