Smrz brothers join PR Racing for 2017
The Smrz brothers have today announced that they will unite in 2017 for a joint attack with PR Racing. Former World Superbike rider Jakub Smrz will return to the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship and his brother, Matej, will head to the National Superstock 1000 Series.
The Liverpool-based team will continue on BMW machinery and are hoping the two brothers will bring experience and talent to the team with high hopes for 2017.
Jakub Smrz said: 'I am really pleased to be joining PR Racing with Matej; having spent a season learning the BMW, I am looking forward to sharing that knowledge with PR and growing with the team, in what will be a very competitive package.
'We have already met as a team last week to plan everything and PR Racing have started preparing the BMWs so we can start testing as soon as possible. I feel very good about 2017. I can't wait to get on the bike soon and go racing!'
On returning to the team, Matej added: 'I'm feeling confident even after my difficult start last year. Luckily in my first year in BSB I joined a great team. John with his partners have given me another opportunity to continue in 2017 and I would like to show everyone it wasn't a bad decision.
'Having my brother in the team after more than fifteen years is like a dream and he will be a great asset. I can gain from his experience of the BMW, as well as the circuits. We work well together and I am looking forward to the possibilities this partnership will bring.'
