Born in France, Jean David Zorbibe is a successful entrepreneur, educated in Paris and a Motorcycle enthusiast.

Performance, consistency and teamwork are at the very heart of the team and in 2014 its first year of competition, Prime Factors won the National Endurance Championship. 2014, Jean David formed Prime Factors Racing Limited, based in their premises Redhill, Surrey competing in the World Endurance Championship with BMW.

Bruce Charman
Managing Director
With over 30 years’ experience with BMW Cars, it was a dream come true when in 2009 BMW released the all-conquering S1000RR Superbike. As a Board Director for BMW Park Lane, this was the perfect opportunity for Bruce to get involved with his true passion; Motorbikes. Having launched the BMW Park Lane race team together with Rick Cappella in 2010, Bruce was then made responsible for the BMW Race Support programme in the UK 2011-2014. This support programme provided technical and parts support from grass roots club racing through to full support at BSB.
Bruce now joins Prime Factors Racing Limited as Managing Director and is proud to be playing his part in helping the team to success.

Rick Capella
Team Manager
Rick has been involved with motorcycle racing in one form or another since 2009, achieving success alongside riders including Shayne Byrne and Chris Walker. In 2010 it was a very easy decision for BMW Park Lane Racing to choose Rick to run their race team, develop their riders and introduce customer track experience days with a ‘try before you buy’ demonstrator race bike. Rick races in the 2014 Prime Factors Race team with 2 BMW HP4 motorcycles, achieving the accolade of 2014 National 1000 Endurance Champions in their first year. Rick is under no illusions that to move up to the World stage for 2015 in the FIM Endurance World Cup is a huge challenge, but with his drive and passion for success anything is achievable…..
