Mar-Train to make guest appearance at Bishopscourt Masters

As the ultra-fast Bishopscourt Race Circuit in Co. Down is preparing to welcome the Masters Superbike Championship this Saturday, April 16th, one of Northern Ireland's top race teams is set to make a guest appearance.

Mar-Train Racing will make their first appearance at the Masters, marking the first time an official Factory backed Yamaha team has competed in the series, and bringing the number of current model R1's in the championship to three. The team will have entries in both the Superbike and Supersport classes and will provide some extra competition for the series regulars as they compete in rounds three and four of the championship.

Whilst Mar-Train will take their first Masters start their rider, Manx man Dan Kneen, is familiar with the series having competed successfully at Mondello Park in 2014. On that occasion Kneen took a Superbike podium and fourth place in the Grand Final on only his second appearance at the technical County Kildare track and also competed strongly in Supersport.

Mar-Train have a relatively short but very successful history in Motorcycle Racing, having lifted championship and race wins on Short Circuits and Roads. Most notably the team won the 2013 British Supersport title with Stuart Easton. in only their second year in the series, having just missed out on a debut title the year before with Jack Kennedy.

This year Mar-Train and Kneen will be the factory Yamaha UK representatives at the International Road Races and selected other events, such as this weekends Masters and with their pedigree and the ability Kneen possesses they can be expected to figure at the front.

Admission to Bishopscourt's Masters Superbike Championship event is £10 for adults with Under 16's admitted free of charge.
