Isle of Man TT winner Hickman gets US TV show garage backing for 2022

Hickman remains with the Faye Ho-run FHO BMW squad for the 2022 season in British Superbikes and the international road races, which return this year having been cancelled since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FHO Racing – born out of the old Smiths Racing squad – will have title sponsorship from US entrepreneur Richard Rawlings at the TT in 2022 in the form of his Gas Monkey Garage, which is featured in the hit Discovery show Fast N’ Loud.

Hickman has been associated with Gas Monkey Garage for some time now, with Rawlings “ecstatic” about the new tie-up.

“The entire Gas Monkey family and I are ecstatic to be involved in this year’s Isle of Man TT,” Rawlings said.

“Getting the chance to be a part of the largest single viewed sporting event and the world’s longest standing time trials is a dream come true.

“We are honoured to be alongside the legendary FHO Racing, Team BMW, and the Fastest Man on Two Wheels, Peter Hickman, for a race that is surely to go down in the history books.

“We look forward to seeing Gas Monkey on the podium come May!”
