Hawk Racing have confirmed their 2012 line-up which will see them competing once again in familiar Buildbase BMW livery in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.

Barry Burrell will continue building on his 2011 experiences with the team while he is joined by Dan Linfoot who will be competing in his third season of BSB.

Linfoot said: “It was always my goal to stay in BSB next season; it is where I want to be and the Moto2 experience this year I am sure can only have helped. The new rules for 2012 will make it a more level playing field and that will definitely be great for everyone. I think the experience the team had last season and the rule changes mean we can be aiming for some good results.

“The BMW has performed well in the Superstock class for the past couple of seasons and that shows that it is one of the best bikes on the market at the moment; there is no reason why that shouldn't translate to BSB. There are lots of questions marks in terms of who is going to be the ones to beat for next season with the various changes, so we will have to wait for round one at Brands Hatch! The team have been working hard on the bikes and I want to be up there from the start.”

Burrell added: “I am really excited to be back in BSB next season with the Buildbase BMW team again as we made steps forward last year and we can continue to do the same in 2012. It took a while last season to adapt to the BMW but now we have that experience we will start next year in a stronger position, as we ended 2011 with some good results.

“I have goals to be inside the top ten and I think with more power now we should be able to move up the order and show what we can do as a team.”
