The Milwaukee Yamaha team is headed up by Shaun Muir, who after retiring from professional racing, decided to turn his hand to team management. Muir began running a team in the British Supersport Championship from 1999 before moving up to MCE BSB in 2005.
The team first took a podium finish in 2005 with Steve Plater and since then have asserted themselves as one of the leading teams in the paddock. They secured their first MCE BSB title with Tommy Hill in 2011 after an epic championship finale, having beaten rival John Hopkins by just 0.006 seconds in the final race of the season.
In 2012 Hill led the standings into the Showdown but it started with disaster at Assen when he crashed on the grid and didn't score points in race one. Hill missed out again at Silverstone but returned to the podium at Brands Hatch to finish third in the overall standings.
The team switched to new colours in 2013 with new title sponsor Milwaukee as Ellison returned alongside double Australian Superbike champion Josh Waters. Ellison secured his position in the Showdown and Tommy Bridewell lined up for the team in the final three rounds, scoring a string of podium finishes.
In 2014 Bridewell returned with the team alongside Australian Josh Brookes with the pair ending the season in third and fourth overall.
For 2015 the team will be fielding the much-anticipated new Milwaukee Yamaha YZF-R1s with Brookes returning alongside former World Supersport title contender Broc Parkes.
