TAG Racing has announced Santander Salt as its new title sponsor in the Bennetts British Superbike championship, while the team will run Chris Walker’s sidecar effort.

The BSB squad lines up with Dan Linfoot and Shaun Winfield running Yamaha YZF-R1s for 2019 and completes its setup with Kent-based company Santander Salt as title sponsor.

Walker has acted as a team rider coach for a couple of years since his retirement from Superbike racing and will dovetail his 2019 efforts on his return to the British Sidecar Championship in Santander Salt TAG Racing colours alongside passenger Tom Christie.

TAG owner Rob Winfield said: “We are delighted to have Santander Salt onboard for the new season, we have been in talks for a while with Roger [Body] and they have always been positive. It’s great to be working with such a large company that has the passion they do for motorsport and we are delighted to have them aboard, for what we feel will be a successful season.

“We have had a slight change of livery for 2019 which is even more striking, we know we have the riders capable of winning races and collecting points, so I’m excited for the season ahead.”
