Kennedy’s Yamaha R6 is finished with a striking traditional blue and white livery, complete with the Mar-Train logo and the coveted number one plate. Kennedy last rode with the Yamaha backed team in 2012, narrowly missing out on the Supersport title by 8.5 points.

“The 2022 Mar-Train Racing Yamaha R6 looks amazing, and I really can’t wait to give its first shakedown at this weekend’s official BSB test at Snetterton,” Kennedy said. “It’s great to be returning to Yamaha machinery in 2022 with such as a successful team.

“The Yamaha R6 has been the most successful bike in just about every international and national Supersport campaign and I know that Tim and Sonya, along with Andy Jamison and Kev Stephenson will have developed a bike that will allow us to challenge for the championship.”

Kennedy dominated the 2021 season, securing seven wins and 17 podiums on his way to securing the title with a comfortable 38-point lead over Ben Currie.

“Mar-Train Racing’s full-time assault on the 2022 British Supersport Championship starts here as we unveil a vibrant and traditional livery in the Mar-Train colours on our Yamaha backed YZF-R6,” Team owner, Tim Martin added.

“We’re excited to see what this season brings. Jack is undoubtedly one of the most talented Supersport riders on the grid and we have been working hard behind the scenes to put together a package that we believe can propel him to a record-breaking championship title.”

The official 2022 pre-season test programme gets underway this Friday (March 25) with a three-day event at Snetterton. A one-day test at Donington Park follows on March 31, before the paddock heads to Silverstone for a two-day test on April 6-7.
