JMcC Roofing Racing has unveiled their squad, which will contest the 2021 season. The Banbridge based outfit laid out their plans for the upcoming season to compete in the Ulster Superbike, British Superbike championships along with selected road races. Team owner Jason McCaw has brought together a mixture of youth and experience as he prepares for his biggest season to date. Building on experience gained and a drive to bring success to the team and riders, McCaw has launched a totally new line up. McCaw is confident that all the correct pieces have been brought into place and that they will prove to be a winning formula.
McCaw has been building his presence over the past number of years and has been involved with a number of high profile riders over the past few years. JMcC Racing was instrumental in Carl Philips 2019 Ulster Superbike Championship win. Philips winning every race on board the JMcC Suzuki bar one before parting company and going his own way. Jeremy McWilliams and multiple road racing champion Derek McGee competed in a number of road races in the familiar orange, black and white JmcC livery in partnership with Ryan Farquhar’s KMR outfit. Young Cameron Dawson won the 2019 Junior Supersport 300 championship again in the same colors and backing.
Jason Lynn will spearhead the team with its assault on the 2021 Ulster Superbike Championship onboard a Suzuki GSXR 1000. 2020 was supposed to be the four-time Ulster Supersport Champions rookie season in the big bike class but as with most sports this was put on hold. Lynn did however get a taste of victory last season beating reigning road race superbike champion Derek Sheils and multi Isle of Man TT winner Michael Dunlop during the only short circuit meeting held at Kirkistown Race Track. Lynn has a wealth of experience and a proven track record for winning championship. Mix that in with the form and shakedown times he has to be a firm favorite to lift the title.
Glenn Walker: probably the most experienced rider in the 2021 squad will line on a Kawasaki ZX10 Superstocker in the Superbike class along side his new stable mate Lynn. Over the years Walker has competed in both short circuits and many road races. He has competed at the Manx Grand Prix, finished second at the Dundrod 150 in 2016 and has had podium finishes at Armoy. He hiatus from short circuit races in Northern Ireland since 2011 instead did not stop him racing instead he concentrated his efforts with the Wirral 100 and Aintree clubs all be it on a Supersport. 2021 will a learning year in the big bike class aboard the JMcC Roofing ZX10 Superstock machine but expect to see him rely on his vast experience to push for podiums. He will be competing in the Ulster Superbike Championship and the Northwest 200 plus any Wirral 100 rounds that don’t clash with the USBK.
Killyman teenager Cameron Dawson is the final rider in the 2021 line up but has had previous connections with JMcC Roofing Racing. In 2019 he won the Ulster Junior Supersport 300 championship and 2020 he competed in the Dickies Junior Supersport Championship a support class running along side the British Superbikes in which he finished in a creditable 4th in the championship. For 2021 the 16 year old will be competing another season in the BSB Junior Supersport Championship. Dawson will also be stepping up to the Supersport class within USBK and will ride a Kawasaki 600 in the Ulster Championship.
