RHYS Irwin will ride for the reigning Quattro Group British Supersport champions, Appleyard Macadam Yamaha, in 2021.
The team has snapped up Irwin and another future star Bradley Perie as they bid to power on from their promising season.
Kilmacrennan-based Irwin moved up to the Superstock 600 series full-time, securing three hard-earned race wins and the overall runner-up position.
“It felt like a good year in Superstock but I really wanted to move up to Supersport and keep pushing myself, so this is the ideal chance to do that,” Irwin said.
“It’s nice to be noticed after all the years of hard work and coming over on the ferry from the West of Ireland every weekend.
“Robin (Appleyard, team owner) runs such a brilliant team and I’ve always followed Jack Kennedy, so I’m well aware of their quality, it will also be amazing racing against him too as he’s such a talent.”Tags:
