Former MotoGP rider Héctor Barberá will line up for his first full season in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2020, signing a new deal with the OMG Racing team which switches to BMW machinery for its new campaign.
Barberá has a wealth of experience as a race winner in both the 125cc and 250cc World Championship Grand Prix classes, finishing second in the 2009 250cc GP title battle. He later moved to the premier MotoGP class where he was the 2015 Open class champion.
Last season, the Spaniard made his debut at Donington Park with the title-winning Quattro Plant JG Speedfit Kawasaki team, securing a top-10 finish on his Bennetts BSB debut, as well as a strong points haul at Snetterton and Assen.
Barberá joins Luke Mossey as OMG continues to field a two-rider Superbike line up, with Aussie Billy McConnell lining up on the National Superstock 1000 grid.
Barberá said: “I’m delighted to remain in the Championship and to join OMG Racing for 2020. Last year I started during the season and that was a big challenge, there was a lot of learning to do in a very short space of time – without testing
