Luke Mossey has joined the iForce Lloyd and Jones BMW team for the remainder of the 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship season.

Mossey parted company with TAG Racing Honda last weekend, whilst Dan Linfoot departed the IForce BMW squad earlier this month as well. Mossey originally joined TAG Racing for the final round of 2021, replacing the outgoing Linfoot.

Whilst he put the Fireblade on pole at Brands Hatch and scored points, his 2022 campaign was much tougher. In the opening five rounds (15 races), Mossey didn’t finish inside the points, recording a best result of 16th at Brands Hatch last month.

Mossey suffered six DNFs and missed the final race at Oulton after dislocating his shoulder and injuring his elbow in race two. Mossey also missed all three races at Donington Park after a crash in qualifying.

“I am really happy to be joining the iForce Lloyd and Jones BMW team,” Mossey said. “It’s been a really tough start to the year for me, so I think a change was needed.

“I’m really looking forward to being back working with Ray Stringer as my crew chief again as we have a lot of history throughout my career. I now just can’t wait for Thruxton this weekend.”

Mossey rode the PR Racing team’s BMW M1000 RR during a shakedown test at Cadwell Park on Tuesday (August 9). As mentioned above, the multiple time BSB race winner will be reunited with former crew chief Ray Stringer at the team.

Julian Mosquera, PR Racing Development Director added. “We’re excited about the prospect of welcoming a rider with Luke’s pedigree into the team. Luke already has experience of the BMW S1000, so reuniting him with Ray we believe is a combination that can give us a great second half of the season on the M 1000 RR; we believe it’s a combination that will give us a great second half of the season.”

Meanwhile, Mossey’s vacated seat at TAG Racing Honda has been taken by 2014 Moto2 World Champion, and former MotoGP and WorldSBK rider, Tito Rabat.
