    “Congratulations to Peter Hickman and the entire team led by Faye Ho for this fantastic performance,” said BMW Motorrad Head Dr. Markus Schramm.

    “Peter Hickman entered this year’s Isle of Man TT as one of the top favorites, and he more than lived up to that role. It’s great to see that he was able to seamlessly continue the successes of previous years with the new BMW M 1000 RR. That cannot be taken for granted, as we saw once again in 2023 how strong the opposition is at arguably the most famous road race in the world. Being there in person this year, I could see for myself that Peter and the FHO Racing Team worked tirelessly and hard to achieve these successes. It was a unique experience, crowned with two victories in the Superstock races, another triumph in the prestigious Senior TT, and new lap records. We are very proud and grateful to Peter Hickman and the team for continuing the success story of the BMW Motorrad brand at the Isle of Man TT also in our centenary year,” Schramm added.

    Hickman’s first win came in the first Superstock TT event when he crossed the checkered flag after three laps with a lead of 23 seconds over the race runner-up. For the second Superstock TT race, Hickman did even better by setting a new outright lap record of 136.358 miles per hour (mph) — or approximately 219.446 kilometers per hour (kph) — at the Isle of Man TT on a BMW M RR tuned for Superstock racing.

    For Hickman’s six-lap Senior TT outing, the British motorcycle racer set a new lap record of 135.507 mph (around 218.077 kph) on lap two. When the dust settled, Hickman had a lead of almost 20 seconds over the race’s second placer.

    Hickman also set a new Superbike TT lap record of 135.445 mph (around 217.977 kph) after claiming the second spot in the class race.

    “That’s the 2023 TT Races done and dusted and the Monster Energy by FHO Racing BMW team have done a fantastic job. The boys have worked tirelessly to get the Superbike working to how I wanted it to. This year the Superbike class has been a tough one; we already showed what we can do in Superstock where we had no problems at all. In the Senior TT, it was great to see that Dean Harrison got out the right side of the bed and gave us a run for our money. Michael Dunlop has been super-fast for the last two weeks, which is fantastic to see and healthy competition is exactly what we want! The fact that the other boys are pushing us on, makes us work harder, try harder and race harder, we also know that coming back next year we’ll have another go at it. Thank you to everyone for the support over this TT!” Hickman commented.
