SYNETIQ BMW will field an unchanged BSB line-up in 2022 after agreeing to a new deal with both Danny Buchan and Andrew Irwin. 

Buchan, winner of two races in 2021 which both came at Knockhill, remains with the team after a seventh place finish in the championship. 

Along with his two wins, Buchan claimed another three podiums in what was his best season in British Superbikes. 

Despite signing a one-year deal at the beginning of last season, Buchan said the intention was always to do a second season with the team as he aims to fight for the title next year. 

"I’m over the moon to stay with TAS Racing and the SYNETIQ BMW team for 2022," added Buchan. 

"The initial plan was always to do a second season and have a real go at winning the title. 

"This first season was good with race wins and podiums, but with a season of development now under our belt, I’m excited to see how far we can take it in year two with the support of BMW Motorrad. 

"I learned a lot throughout the year and connected with the team and my crew. We now fully understand each other and I believe we can challenge strongly and have a really good 2022. I can’t wait to get started." 

While it was a very strong first season aboard BMW machinery for Buchan, team-mate Irwin had a much tougher time of it as he claimed just one podium at Donington Park. 

Irwin finished the season 14th - seven places behind Buchan, however, the Northern Irishman missed a total of seven races due to injury which didn’t help.

A motivated Irwin said: "I’m really excited to continue with SYNETIQ BMW into 2022. There’s no point hiding or running from the fact that 2021 wasn’t my strongest in BSB, so I’ve got lots of motivation to turn that around and prove what I’m capable of on the M 1000 RR. 

"Thanks to TAS Racing for showing the commitment to keep me onboard for next year, and I’m now looking forward to repaying the faith they have shown in me with a strong campaign. 

"I’m excited about going racing again, turning this ship around and putting the SYNETIQ BMW on regular podiums in 2022."
