Ivan Lintin in two-year deal with RC Express Racing

Scarborough Gold Cup winner Ivan Lintin replaces Dean Harrison in father and son Roy and Ben Constable's RC Express Racing team for 2015 and 2016 road racing seasons
Lincolnshire's Ivan Lintin has teamed up with RC Express Racing in an exciting new partnership for the 2015 and 2016 road races.

Lintin takes over the ride from Dean Harrison, who left the team to sign a two-year deal with Northern Ireland's Mar-Train Yamaha outfit.

The 30-year-old, who claimed the Privateers crown at the TT in June, will ride the RC Express Kawasaki ZX-10R machines in the Superbike and Superstock classes plus a Kawasaki ER6 in the Supertwin category.

He has already enjoyed plenty of success in the Supertwin class, taking wins at the Ulster Grand Prix, Southern 100 and Scarborough and setting the fastest time in practice for the Lightweight TT before he was cruelly ruled out on the opening lap of the race with an electrical problem.

And Lintin has also been making rapid progress on the bigger machines, dominating the Gold Cup meeting at Scarborough in September with six wins from seven starts.

“I'm delighted to be joining RC Express Racing. It's a fabulous opportunity for me, and one I'm determined to grab with both hands,” he said.

“I've been really pleased with my results and progression over the last two years and joining forces with RC Express will enable me to progress to the next level.

“As soon as talks between Ben, Roy and myself started it didn't take long for everything to fall into place and you only have to look at what they've achieved with Dean to see that they've firmly established themselves as a major force to be reckoned with.

“I'm really looking forward to getting on a Superbike for the first time and the next two seasons promise to be really exciting for me,” added Lintin.

“The team set-up will enable me just to concentrate on my riding, something that I haven't been able to do previously, and I'm confident I'll be able to repay the faith Ben and Roy have shown in me.

“I'll be looking to finish in the top ten at all of the International road races. I'd also like to thank everyone at Taylor Lindsey Racing for all their support over the last two seasons."
