Team Biography

Dean Hipwell made his debut in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2019, progressing to the premier class with CDH Racing after seasons campaigning in both the Supersport and Superstock support series.

Hipwell was a regular point scorer in the Superstock class and was previously a runner-up in both the British 125 and British Supersport Cup Championships, but now having retired from competing manages the team with Josh Owens onboard for a third consecutive season.

The Rapid CDH Racing Kawasaki team announced an expansion for 2022, signing rookie Liam Delves alongside Josh Owens ahead of the new season. The 21-year-old will make his debut in the Superbike class after progressing through the support classes within the series, including Motostar. The Birmingham-based contender most recently lined up in the Pirelli Junior Superstock Championship where he claimed podium finishes, ending the season sixth in the overall standings. 

In 2023 the team maintained a two-strong rider line-up, with reigning British GP2 Champion Jack Scott making his Bennetts BSB debut with Louis Valleley joining the team mid season after stepping up from the Pirelli Junior Superstock Championship.
