Following two successful seasons together in British Superstock, PDM Racing and Luke Quigley will step up to the British Superbike Cup Championship in 2008 - with their sights set on nothing less than title glory.

"It's a strong group this year but I am hopeful of winning the championship at my first attempt as I feel the bike is spot on and the team are right behind me," declared Quigley. "The new tyre and engine regs will be a real leveller in terms of performance and I am looking forward to mixing it with some of the big teams."

"We are delighted to welcome Luke back to the team as our rider in 2008," said team manager Terry Kirk. "The team and Luke work really well together and this creates the ideal platform for us to increase our commitment and step up to the British Superbike Cup Championship this season."

Earlier this month the PDM Racing Suzuki GSX-R1000 K8 was put through its paces at the Pirelli Test in Guadix, Spain, and the team is now looking forward to its first 'official' Cup action.

"The team are eagerly anticipating the start of the season, which kicks off with the official BSB Test at Snetterton this weekend," added Kirk. "We are looking forward to some further track time to continue development of chassis, suspension and electronics to help us reach optimum performance prior to the start of the season, when the racing begins for real."
