Honda Motor Europe has confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Triple M Racing to run a third Honda CBR1000RR SP2 in the 2018 Superbike World Championship WorldSBK.

Triple M Racing will be the satellite team of Honda in next year’s series, joining the official Red Bull Honda team on the grid.

“I feel very honoured and pleased that my team, Triple M Racing, has been selected by Honda as their official satellite team to compete in the Superbike World Championship,” Matthias Moser commented. “I am convinced that the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 has a great potential and that we can help to demonstrate its competitiveness on the track in 2018 and beyond.”

Honda WorldSBK operations manager Marco Chini said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Triple M Racing into the Honda family and look forward to working with them in the World Superbike class. Triple M Racing is a strong team built on high professionalism and healthy ambition, and driven by the same goal of success that defines our brand.”

The Triple M Racing team has been a constant presence within the WorldSBK paddock since 2013, competing in the Superstock 1000 category. A rider is yet to be finalised for the new year.
