OMG Racing and Gino Rea have agreed to terminate the rider’s contract for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike season, due to a conflict of interest.
Gino has helped OMG to develop into a standout team and a crowd favourite during our first year as a British Superbike team, we cannot thank him enough for his hard-work and professionalism across the 2018 season. He has delivered the team with many memorable moments, including topping the first practice session at Assen and a fantastic ride to 7th place at Silverstone.
We are disappointed to be losing a talented rider but fully support Gino’s further aspirations in the paddock. Gino will always remain a part of the OMG Family and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours. We ask our supporters that the privacy of the team and of Gino is respected in this period.
OMG Racing is focused on the preparations for first pre-season test in Cartagena next week as well as the upcoming 2019 BSB season; and we look forward to announcing racing seats within the team shortly.
