Scott Redding Joins Bonovo Action BMW for the 2024 Season

September 20, 2023Ray Milton

Scott Redding will move out of his current factory BMW seat and to Bonovo Action BMW as teammates with Garrett Gerloff. Redding will replace Loris Baz. As a result Michael van der Mark will assume the role of Toprak Razgatlioglu’s 2024 teammate with BMW. There has been speculation around such a move for quite some time now but it is officially official. Dr. Markus Schramm, Director of BMW Motorrad, stated his excitement and emphasized that both teams will have equal support and material from the factory itself:

“Four great BMW Motorrad factory riders in our two strong BMW teams – with this new allocation, we are set up superbly for the WorldSBK season 2024. Scott Redding is a great racer and we appreciate that he is staying true to our BMW Motorrad World Superbike project by bringing his skills to bear in the Bonovo Action BMW team. His experience, speed and expertise in particular, will be a key component as we optimise our collective goals together with Garrett Gerloff and the whole team. The addition of Toprak Razgatlioglu allows us to distribute our factory riders perfectly across our two competitive teams. Together with Michael van der Mark in the ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, we have the ideal line-up for the overall project.”

“Collaborating closely with our BMW Motorrad Motorsport engineers, both teams will use the feedback from the riders to make continuous, collective improvements to the motorbike. We also believe that having two teams with top riders will also raise the internal competitive pressure. That also helps to lift the overall performance levels. We are convinced that this new line-up for riders and teams represents another important step as we move closer to the top of WorldSBK with our project. Finally, I would like to thank Loris Baz for our collaboration. He will leave the World Superbike project after the end of the current season. After two seasons that he contested for the Bonovo Action BMW team, we wish him all the best for the future.”
