Steve Mercer will join the RC Express Kawasaki team that took Ivan Lintin to his first Isle of Man TT win for this year’s Ulster Grand Prix in six weeks’ time.
Mercer ran his own bikes at this year’s Isle of Man TT, pulling together a last-minute collection of local sponsors to take an impressive collection of results, with the high point being twelth in the Superbike TT.
He’ll now join the successful RC Express squad, who took a podium finish last year at the Northern Irish race with Dean Harrison.
“I’m really buzzing to be able to make the announcement that I'll be riding for RC Express. A massive thanks to the team for the opportunity – I can't wait to get going!”
