While Swan Yamaha and rider Tommy Hill are toasting their success in the 2011 British Superbike Championship (BSB), so too is Swedish suspensions systems manufacturer Ohlins.

The team switched to using Ohlins race products for the first time at the start of the campaign, with Hill explaining that he has stuck with Ohlins ever since he first sat on a superbike.

"You know you're always going to get good feedback and the stuff we've got on the Swan Yamaha is mega – and now I have a BSB title to prove it!" he exclaimed.

It is the 14th time in the last 16 seasons that a rider using Ohlins suspension systems has won the BSB title, but Hill was not the only one to experience success with Ohlins.

In fact, the top four finishers in this year's BSB standings all use the Swedish company's suspension products.

"The top four in the BSB championship, World Superbike Championship and MotoGP – it has been another great year for the company both on and off road," added Chris Witter, business development manager at Ohlins Racing UK.
