1 of 1

Warr’s Harley-Davidson, established on London’s Kings Road in 1924, has signed former MotoGP star Jeremy McWilliams to ride in the inaugural Harley-Davidson XR1200 Trophy race series at selected BSB rounds this year.

Warr’s has already worked closely with McWilliams at the Daytona 200, and in the US AMA Formula Xtreme series. The dealership is entering a two-bike team into the series. A second rider will be announced soon.

Warr’s owner John Warr said: “We are delighted to have Jeremy back on board with us for our campaign in the XR1200 Trophy.

“Racing Harley’s is in our blood here at Warr’s so let there be no doubt about our ambitions for the most successful season.”

Warr’s won the British Harley-Davidson XL883 series two years running and has extensive experience racing Harley-Davidson and Buell motorcycles across Europe and the USA.

The XR1200 Trophy, which is officially supported by Harley-Davidson UK and Ireland, is designed to attract a varied mix of clubman, superbike and superstock contenders as well as younger stars looking to develop their racing skills.

The series kicks off at Oulton Park in Cheshire on 1-3 May. Subsequent events will be staged at Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park, Knockhill and Mallory Park, and all races will be shown on British Eurosport.
