Taylor Mackenzie joins Mar-Train

“I'd spoken to a number of people that I know, but Tim's team were recommended to me by a good friend in the business. Taylor was also keen on the idea and after that it all just unfolded.

“Taylor had five days in Spain at the end of last year and had time on an R6 road bike. He loved it and having grown a bit towards the end of last season, he was happy that he fitted onto it after being cramped on the 125. So just before the New Year we shook hands on the deal with Tim.

“I must admit I'm happy that Taylor's on a Yamaha - it will suit the way he rides. There's a bit of family history there obviously and I've a good relationship with Yamaha worldwide, so hopefully that will be good for us and the team."

It shows what a sad state the economy is in if someone like Niall Mackenzie can't secure backing for his own son. What it also highlights is the desperate need for a Domestic Moto2 series. As others have highlighted the winners of British SS only ever go to BSB where as a Moto2 winner would have more options, if we don't I fear the GP grids will look more like a Spanish domestic series.
