Former MotoGP star Jeremy McWilliams will contest both Supersport races at next week’s fonaCAB and Nicholl Oils North West 200 aboard a Burrows Engineering/RK Racing Yamaha R6.
The three-time NW200 winner, who raced a Mar-Train Yamaha in the 600cc class at the north coast event in 2016, will replace the injured Mike Browne. The Cork man’s NW200 debut stalled after he broke both of his ankles in a crash at the Cookstown 100.
“I am sure Mike would like to be lining up on the grid next week but I wish him a speedy recovery,” said McWilliams, who will also ride an IFS Paton in the NW200 Supertwins events.
“I am hopeful of a decent result on the 600 next week on what I know is a well sorted machine and I am looking forward to working with John and his team.”
