Leon Haslam is another rider to have followed in his Father’s footsteps to compete in top level motorcycle racing, and the ‘Pocket Rocket’ returns to bid for a second British Championship crown in 2024.

Haslam has competed and Grand Prix level and returned to the British Championship from the World stage when he was previously a runner-up in the title fight in 2010, including competing for Honda with their WSBK project. In his WSBK career he scored five wins and 45 podiums.

He is famously known within the British Championship for his determination; in 2017 he looked set to claim his first title when he suffered brake failure which saw him crash out of contention and suffer a broken ankle. It handed the title to his rival, but he still gritted his teeth with injury to return to congratulate his opposition on their victory.

A year later it was a different story and he delivered an incredible performance all season long to seize the crown in emphatic style, winning 15 races with a further six podiums.

Last season Haslam continued to show his hallmark grit and determination to start his own team just ahead of the season and despite some mechanical gremlins he went on to finish as the top BMW in the standings, in fifth place.
