BMW Motorrad Motorsport will welcome a new family member for the 2022 FIM Superbike Championship with 28-year old Brit Scott Redding signing on to compete on the BMW M 1000 RR for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team in the coming season.
Redding has been active in different world championship classes since 2008, including racing in MotoGP for five years. In 2019, he competed in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) for one season and secured the title. For the 2020 season, he switched to the Superbike World Championship signing a two year deal with the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Team.

In addition, talks are currently underway between BMW Motorrad Motorsport and Tom Sykes (GBR) about a contract extension for the 2022 World Superbike season. Accordingly, all other constellations will be announced at a later date.
Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “We are very pleased to welcome Scott to our WorldSBK family. In the last years, he has proven to make a great transition from GP through BSB into WorldSBK, to become one of the strongest riders in the field. We are therefore convinced that Scott, with his fighting spirit and absolute will to win, is the perfect new addition for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team and another reinforcement for our entire WorldSBK project. A warm welcome to Scott, we are looking forward to a strong collaboration.”
Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “We have been following Scott’s career for a number of years and are delighted that he will now become a part of our team.
