The Gulf Oil International Group announced a new long-term technical partnership with the Milwaukee BMW World Superbike Team, commencing this season. BMW’s new manufacturer-backed race squad is run by Shaun Muir Racing, who are based in Yorkshire, England. Assisted by Gulf, the multiple British Superbike winners are stepping up into the World Superbike Championship in a deal which will initially run for three seasons.
It marks Gulf’s debut in this highly competitive world series. Gulf branding will be prominent on the 1000 RR BMW bikes as well as on team leathers, team wear, pit garage set-up and the team transporter. Gulf will be providing product for the team and will be looking to heavily promote its new world superbike programme across its global network of lubricant and fuel retail licensees. The two-bike team features current British Superbike Champion, Josh Brookes, as well as former Moto GP star, Karel Abraham, who is making the transition into world superbikes after five years in Moto GP, and whose signing shows the intent of the team to field a top class rider line up.
