FHO Racing explains North West 200 snub

The team will not compete at the meeting in 2024

FHO Racing will not compete at this year's North West 200.

The outfit has released a statement explaining its decision not to be part of the 2024 meeting in Northern Ireland which is due to take place from 8-11 May.

Team Principal, Faye Ho, says following discussion with riders Peter Hickman and Josh Brookes, the team will not be present 'simply due to the logistics and the event being between BSB rounds, then straight to the TT.'

Along with this year's TT due to start on 27 May, BSB rounds at Oulton Park and Donington Park will also take place in the same month.

Furthermore, the team adds the decision 'allows the team to fully focus on its British Superbike Championship commitments as well as the Isle of Man TT.'

Separately, Hickman will be attending this year's North West 200 but only with his own PHR Performance machines, a move which has been agreed with FHO Racing.

Meanwhile, the organisers of the North West 200 state they're 'disappointed' the FHO team will not be involved but are wishing them 'a safe and successful 2024 season.'
