It is with great pleasure that GMT94 announces the arrival of Philipp ÖTTL (27 years old), for the 2024 WSBK season, in Superbike.
The German rider finished last season with 124 points, regularly in the top 10. His motivations for joining GMT94 and riding the Yamaha R1 were decisive.
Philipp is one of the riders we have always watched with interest. His riding style should allow the Yamaha GMT94 to regularly reach the top 10 in World SBK. The whole team is pleased to welcome Philippe ÖTTL and is preparing for the first official tests scheduled for 24/25 January 2024, on the Jerez de la Fronteira circuit (Spain).
Christophe GUYOT: Grand Prix winner in Moto3 with a total of three podiums in the category, Philipp Öttl made his debut in the Supersport world championship in 2020. After achieving 11 podiums, he reached the Superbike world championship in 2022. In 2023, he demonstrated his speed finishing 5th in Australia and six times in the top seven. We hope to finish in the top 10 next season, we will help Philipp achieve his goals as a driver.
Philipp ÖTTL: I am very happy to join GMT94 for the 2024 season. Christophe and his team have been working at a very high level for decades and I am honored to be able to join the team. During the last events of the 2023 season I took a step forward and I would like to continue it next year too. Of course, it’s a difficult goal, but I will prepare well during the winter holidays to be ready for the first tests. I can’t wait to meet the team and start working.
