In 2021 the British Supersport championship saw Triumph Motorcycles, a legendary British brand, return to the racing scene with an official factory-supported team in collaboration with Performance Technical Racing. The Triumph – PTR racing team is the result of a partnership between the Hinckley-based brand and the racing team led by Simon Buckmaster which claims a renowned past in numerous competitions, such as the World Supersport championship and the Isle of Man TT.
Triumph Motorcycles will continue to officially support PTR by developing the bike used in last year's British Supersport championship season. The bike is derived directly from the Street Triple RS and its 765 Triple engine, which has proven outstanding performance and reliability in the last two series of the Moto2 World Championship.
The main aims of the project are to continue to develop the team and the machine following the successful return of the legendary British brand to the paddock of the world’s most relevant national motorcycle championship - British Superbikes in 2021- and the inaugural Triumph World Supersport Championship race win with Stefano Manzi in 2022 (the first win by a new generation Supersport machine) to build on those results in the FIM Supersport World Championship in 2024.
