Jakub 'Kuba' Smrž[1] (born 7 April 1983 in České Budějovice, Czechoslovakia) is a professional motorcycle road racer. For 2017 he will ride a BMW S1000RR in the British Superbike Championship. For 2015 Smrž was contracted to ride Lloyds British Moto Rapido Ducati Panigale in the British Superbike Championship, but after a crash and injury in the fourth round at Snetterton, was replaced mid-season by John Hopkins. For the last three races of 2015, Smrž was drafted-in by Shaun Muir Racing to compete aboard a Yamaha YZF-R1.

Race career[edit]

He first entered the 125cc World Championship in 2000. He was 17th overall in 2001, then divided his time between 125cc and the 250cc championships in 2002. He remained in the 250cc World Championship until 2006, finishing 12th overall with a best of 7th that year.

For 2007 he was the surprise choice to replace Roberto Rolfo at the formerly race-winning SC Caracchi Ducati team in the Superbike World Championship. On a customer Ducati 999 F05 he frequently troubled the top sixteen in qualifying. He finished the season 14th with a best race result of 8th.

For 2008 he rode a customer Ducati 1098 RS 08 for the Guandalini Racing by Grifo's team. He finished the 2008 season in 13th place in the championship.

For 2009 Smrž continued with the Guandalini Racing Team, gaining his first podium finish (3rd) in the fourth round of the season at Assen and first pole position in the eighth round at Misano Adriatico. This time he finished 10th overall.

Smrž remained with the team in 2010, running under the B&G moniker after a partnership deal with the former Sterilgarda Ducati team.[2] After a string of mechanical failures midseason, the team switched to an Aprilia bike, marking the first time Smrž had ridden anything other than a Ducati in the class.[3] He was the fastest Aprilia in qualifying at Silverstone.[4]

Smrž lives in Zlín.
