Hickman steps up to BSB

Tuesday, January 19 2010

Peter Hickman and the Ultimate Racing team are gearing up for their biggest challenge yet as they prepare for the new season and a step up to the main MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.

Hickman finished second in last year's BSB Cup with the Ultimate Racing Yamaha team and feeling eager to progress with the privateer entry, he is ready to aim for the top ten and take on some of the bigger teams in the paddock.

Hickman said: "I can't wait for the new season as we are going all out and competing in the main championship. We have the same bike and the same team but we have a year's worth of development so we know exactly where we are and just need to continue building on this. We may be a privateer team but I don't think there is any reason why we shouldn't be aiming for the top ten and I really can't wait to see where we are at come round one.

"We should start testing either February or March and the bike is currently completely stripped and ready to be rebuilt with some new parts. I am absolutely ready for the new season and the grid is looking really good and I think it is only going to get better. I have to admit I am looking forward to racing with Neil (Hodgson) as I haven't been on track with him before. I also have to thank Martin and Susan Sleaford, Rob and Vick from R. Butt Logistics and Ian from Ultimate Racing. I wouldn't be able to do it without their support and I want to give them some good results this year."
