Mar-Train racing will be Yamaha’s factory roads team for the next two seasons after penning a two-year deal which will see them take over from Shaun Muir’s Milwaukee-backed squad.
Following three highly successful years in the British Superbike paddock Tim Martin’s outfit recently announced they were stepping away from the series to concentrate on their road racing campaign.
Having tasted their first success on the International Road Race scene in 2014 Mar-Train will concentrate their efforts on increasing this tally by taking in the three International Road Races plus selected National Road Races. The team will consist of one rider and will campaign the three main classes, Supersport, Superstock and Superbike.
“To be the official Yamaha UK entrant is a fantastic accolade for a family run team such as ourselves. We have had a strong relationship with Yamaha UK over the past four years winning two dozen British Supersport races and a North West 200 on the fantastic YZF-R6 plus numerous other National victories,” said team boss Tim Martin.
“Having the security of a two year deal shows Yamaha’s intentions and commitment to the project and also their confidence that we can put their machines on the top step at the International events. This is a fresh and exciting challenge for us and one I am relishing, 2015 cannot come soon enough.”
