SUPERBIKES - Liam Delves to return to British Superbike Championship as stand-in for TAG Racing Honda

LIAM Delves is returning to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship just days after parting ways with his former Rapid CDH Racing team.

Delves will be on the grid for round six of the Championship at Brands Hatch with TAG Racing Honda as he stands in for injured rider Hector Barbera.

The Solihull rider has endured a tough season thus far but hopes to be competitive on the Honda CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade for a team he has worked with previously.

Delves said: “I am excited to be going to Brands Hatch this weekend with TAG after some recent uncertainty.

“My ambitions to succeed remain unchanged, and I have had some incredible support from fans and sponsors alike.

“I have spent a lot of time both personally and professionally with the TAG Racing team, we work really well together. I want to thank everyone involved in making this happen and I want to wish Hector a speedy recovery.”




TAG Racing team manager, Gary Winfield, added: “It is the right decision for Hector to miss this round as he continues to rebuild the strength in his left leg since the race two incident at Snetterton.

“Liam is a confident rider with a keen desire to push forwards and bring back some competitive points.


“Liam has proven himself to be a really adaptable rider and as a team, we feel that Liam will gel quickly with the machine and enjoy some success this weekend.”
