Medd returns to BSB with Boss D&B BMW

Nick Medd increases the number of BMW S1000RRs on the British Superbike grid in 2011 with his own Boss D&B entry.
Nick Medd has secured a return to the British Superbike Championship after acquiring a BMW S1000RR for the 2011 season.

The 31-year-old last competed in the Superbike class in 2006 having made his category debut in 2002 and has started a total of 71 races in that time.

Since then, Medd has focused on the British Supersport Championship, though he failed to score any points in 2010.

Nonetheless, both he and his Boss D&B outfit will progress to the Superbike ranks next season with BMW, bringing the tally of German bikes on the grid to four alongside the trio of Buildbase-prepared machines.

"We have already been to Cartagena for four days testing and it has given up some good direction with the electronics. I wanted to get back into BSB and the main championship as I did struggle in Supersport and I think I have a better opportunity to perform this year than I did when I previously raced in the Superbike class.

"I want to improve and continue to move forward throughout the season and we have more tests scheduled before Brands Hatch so there is no reason why we shouldn't. We still have further development work to undergo before the first round but already the BMW feels brilliant and I am looking forward to the next stage.

“We chose the BMW as last season it had so much success in Superstock classes around the world, so it has a lot of potential and as a privately-run team we can develop the bike ourselves and I already feel at home on it after the first test."

People, People, People, calm down dears its only a commercial..........The only reason I'm wasting my time to write this one and only ever reply is after someone telling me about the digs against my family. It's water off a ducks back for me for the usual year on year comments, but why have a go at my f''king Dad?!! The guy has worked his bollops off since leaving school at the age of 14 to work his way from nothing to the success he has today. No rubbing it in peoples faces just pure hard work and determination. I am a very lucky lad no doubt about it but have been brought up by my Mum and Dad to keep my feet firmly on the ground. Yes, everyones entitled to an opinion good or bad, but EVERYONE deserves to be in the paddock who love the sport like myself and my family does. Just remember "The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves" Have a safe and successful season everyone.
