BSB: Luke Mossey switches to Suzuki in OMG Move

After a 4-year run with Kawasaki, Luke Mossey has announced that he will join OMG Suzuki for 2019 in a bid to challenge for the title.

Luke Mossey will leave JG Speedfit Kawasaki at the end of 2018 to join Chris Oscroft, Greg McPhail and Alan Gardner’s OMG Racing Suzuki team.

Mossey joined Superbikes in 2015 onboard the Quattro Plant Kawasaki ending the season as British Superbikes Riders Cup Champion along with 3 podiums to his name.

In 2016 Mossey went one better, making it inside the showdown and finishing in 6th place overall this time with 4 podiums to his name. For 2017 Mossey joined Leon Haslam at JG Speedfit Kawasaki and was in the hunt for the 2017 MCE British Superbike title after picking up his debut wins after double delight at Brands Hatch for the Skywalker. This title challenge came to a halt after a big crash at Thruxton ruled Mossey out of both Thruxton and Cadwell and severely knocked his confidence.

For 2018 Mossey remained with JG Speedfit as he felt like he and the team had unfinished business after how 2017 ended, but despite a 5th and an 8th after the opening round at Donington, it was not to be for Luke as he ended 2018 in a disappointing 16th overall.

Mossey will join OMG who made their debut in the British Championship this season with ex Moto2 and World Supersport rider Gino Rea, OMG’s best finish of the season was at Silverstone, a track Gino knows well, with a 9th and 7th.
