Rob Mac Racing has announced that it and Michael Rutter have decided to part company following a difficult start to the ViSK.com British Superbike Championship season.

Rutter began the season riding the North West 200 Coca-Cola Yamaha alongside Chris Walker and Graeme Gowland, but failed to score in the first two rounds of the season at Brands Hatch and Oulton Park.

Although he competed with the team at the weekend's North West 200, Rutter, who finished sixth in the standings aboard a Ducati last season, will end his contract early having failed to get the best out of the Yamaha.

A replacement will now be sought for Rutter, although the NW200 Coca-Cola team will continue to be represented in the British Supersport category with Dan Linfoot.
