BSB: Brian McCormack joins Roadhouse Macau by FHO Racing for 2021
FHO Racing BMW will be supporting former Irish Superbike champion Brian McCormack in next year's Bennetts British Superbike and road racing seasons.
McCormack received support from FHO owner Faye Ho during the 2020 BSB season, where he also competed on a BMW.

He'll remain under the Roadhouse Macau banner in 2021 but will receive full support from the new FHO Racing team. Peter Hickman remains in what was the Smiths Racing outfit and is joined by Spaniard Xavi Fores.
“I met Faye in Macau when I first started going several years ago, and she kindly offered to support me in BSB last season but has massively stepped that up for 2021," McCormack said. "It’s fantastic to be part of such a strong operation and be able to announce our plans quite early."
McCormack is the fastest ever Republic of Ireland rider at the Isle of Man TT, having lapped the Mountain Course at 128.812mph. His best result at the TT came in 2019, when he ended the Senior TT in ninth - also on a BMW.
“Obviously, having no Isle of Man TT is a massive blow, but hopefully, we can ride some Irish events before the BSB programme gets underway and we have everything crossed for the North West 200 still," McCormack added. "I can’t wait to get going; this is probably the best opportunity I’ve had in racing.”
The FHO Racing team will get their hands on the all-new BMW M1000 RR next year. After a tough 2020 for all BMW teams, they're hoping that the new model can bring them back towards the front in 2021.
"Brian is passionate about his racing, and we’re pleased to be supporting his efforts in 2021," FHO Racing team owner Faye Ho said. "We have a strong connection through Macau, so I’m really hoping we can make a big splash for FHO and Roadhouse at the 2021 Macau Grand Prix!"
