Paul Bird Motorsport Information:

Paul Bird’s team have been regular campaigners at national level in the UK for many seasons on track and on the roads, and also more recently in the World Superbike Championship. The Cumbrian outfit now embarks on its second season in the premier class of motorcycle racing after an up and down 2012, in which they struggled to get the bike competitive on a consistent basis. Having taken on the exciting Yonny Hernandez, the team is completed by Northern Irishman Michael Laverty, a vastly experienced racer at national level who is desperate to show his capabilities on the elite stage.
