Prime Factors Racing is gearing up to switch to the MCE British Superbike championship in 2016 after a year in the FIM Endurance World Championship, with its rider line-up expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Surrey-based squad is managed by ex-racer Steve Plater and despite being formed just two years ago found instant success by winning the National Endurance Championship in its debut year. The team graduated into the FIM Endurance World Superstock championship in 2015 and consistently fought towards the front.

Looking for a fresh challenge, Prime Factors Racing will swap endurance racing for campaigns in both the British Superbike championship and the National Superstock 1000 class with BMW Motorrad-supported S1000RR machines.

Plater is relishing the opportunity to heading up the squad in BSB and in the Superstock 1000 and is aiming for a solid maiden campaign to build foundations upon.

"This is a very exciting opportunity for everyone at Prime Factors Racing," Plater said. "BSB is undoubtedly the most relevant series in motorcycle sport, and with 2016 being its 20th anniversary it was a perfect opportunity to make our debut! We're confident that with the calibre of riders we have, coupled with the support from BMW, we won't be there to make up the numbers and our goal is to mix it up with the more established teams."

Prime Factors Racing will announced its full rider line-up in both BSB and Superstock 1000 in the coming weeks.
