Caolán Irwin "up a gear" in 2018 BSB Superstock 600 championship

Caolán Irwin will move up to the 2018 British Superstock 600 and will ride a 2018 Yamaha R6 with backing from Clean Rubber Sligo and Oasis Bar Letterkenny. The team have received backing from Crank Racing and Sean Mc Kenny Construction as they partake in the 12 round series starting in Donington Park at the end of March.

“I’m delighted to be moving over to the British Superstock 600 championship and to go on the new R6 was an added draw as I had a lot of success on the old model last year in Thundersport. I had several options to consider at the end of 2017 so I discussed it with two of my main long term sponsors Galfee and Wesley who have backed my racing since I started and the plan just evolved. One of the main things I wanted to try and achieve this year was to keep the same mechanics as last year, so I'm really excited to have Ray Simpson and Wesley Regan back on the spanners at the races, Shane Wogan doing the engines and Mark Arnott doing my suspension. This will be the first time I've ever had a proper testing programme so can't wait to get started. We have built the bike from scratch and I have to say a special thanks to Shane Wogan, James Halligan, Mark Arnott and the boys at K-Tech for getting everything done in time for testing”

"I also have to say a special thanks to all my sponsors and my Mum and Mad who have made this possible"

The team now turns it attentions to their first test with the new machine in Guadix Spain on the 15th of February.
