Stuart Easton joins Mar-Train Racing for Supersport tilt

“I'm really pleased to have him in our team and he is undoubtedly the best of all the options we could have signed for next year.”

Easton will have the use of a factory-supported Yamaha R1 for the superbike races at the North West 200 in addition to the Yamaha R6.

Martin continued: “He is a proven Supersport winner and champion and can also ride a Superbike, so to have him for the NW200 is the cherry on the cake."

Easton finished as the runner-up in the main superbike race at the North West 200 in 2010 after losing out to Alastair Seeley in a thrilling final lap tussle.

He previously made headlines at the event when he clocked a top speed of 204mph on the Swan Honda two years ago.

It is understood that Kennedy will not continue with Mar-Train Racing next year and a second rider may be signed to join Easton next week.

Good move by Easton. He always looked far more comfortable on a supersport machine than a superbike. Coupled with a good team, he should do well.

A great signing for a top team. Supersport is shaping up to be the class to it almost always is! I hear Jack is holding out for a World Supersport ride, or possibly a good Superbike in BSB. I'd love to see him in WSS
