Korie McGreevy is busting to get going in this years British Supersport Championship.
This weekend (24th April) he was getting a few laps on his Mar-Train Racing Yamaha R6 at Bishopscourt Racing Circuit before heading across to Silverstone for the official BSB test days.
The Ballynahinch rider recently signed up with the Lisburn based Mar-Train Racing team and will be looking to be as successful as he was in the Superstock class which he won in 2019.
This will be Mar-Trains return to the BSB paddock for the first time in seven years, in 2013 they took the title with Scotsman Stuart Easton
McGreevy made his debut in the class at a few selected rounds in 2020 but as with many racers the lack of funds put paid to any serious challenge but this year with major backing he is determined to seize the opportunity with a title-winning team and hopes to be a regular rostrum contender.
Team owner Tim Martin.
“We’ve been a sponsor of Korie since 2010 when he rode a 125cc Aprilia for us in the Production class.
“He’s probably the rider we have had our longest association with and we stepped in last year to help him out with an engine, because it was evident his bike was slow compared to the opposition and he was compared to the opposition and he was having to over-ride it to try and stay with the front runners.
“During the final round of the British Supersport championship at Brands Hatch he was consistently in the top six, his lap times similar to the race winners.”
“Tim knows what it takes to win a British Supersport title, but it isn’t going to be easy with world class riders in the field of what is a re-vamped series for 2021,”
“I want to be as competitive as I can and Tim has given me that opportunity. Century Racing and Ashvale Engineering are back onboard, so it’s basically a County Down team chasing British championship success and we can’t wait to get started.”
