Muggeridge gets HM Plant Honda ride

1 of 1

Karl Muggeridge will ride the HM Plant Honda in BSB meetings until injured Glen Richards returns to the fitness.

The team will field Steve Brogan alongside Muggeridge at Brands Hatch in two week’s time on August 9 as a replacement for Josh Brookes who is banned for two events after causing a crash at Mallory Park on July 19.

TT hero John McGuinness will replace Brookes at Cadwell Park on August 31.

Brookes will be back in action on September 13 and the Croft BSB round.

Speaking about the choice of Muggeridge, team boss Neil Tuxworth said: “We wanted to stick with a Honda rider.

"Karl has worked with the team before. We gave him his first-ever World Supersport ride.

"And he won the World Supersport title riding a Honda. He wasn’t tied into a contract and the last thing we didn’t want to do was take a rider from another team. Karl will ride for us until Glen is fit.”
