hinney from Castledawson who won the 2013 Ulster and Irish Superbike Champion and was a contender in the 2014 British Thundersport GB GP1, said:I’m indebted to Julian and all the guys at Seadrift Offshore whom without their faith and belief in me, I would not be able to live this dream.  Its every riders dream to go British Championship racing and that’s where we will be this season.

“I am really looking forward to the start of the season at Donington Park where we can finally get the show on the road.  I have a great team mate in Alex Heaton, and a great team behind me, so if everything goes as we have planned I think we can deliver some very decent results as the years goes on”

And Alex Heaton (23), from Halifax  in West Yorkshire and 2014 Thundersport GB GP1 Champion and Superstock 1000 Champion, added: I can’t wait for the season to begin.  This is the most competitive Championship in the world with some of the best riders in the world.  I have a mega team behind me and we have all the ingredients to make it a successful season”.

Julian Askew, Team Principal, said: It has taken a lot of hard work and many many man hours to get to where we are now, but I am just as excited about the year ahead as both our riders are.  Nico and Alex are two very capable riders whom I have every belief in can do well.

“Off course this year is going to be a learning curve for us all in our maiden season in British Championships, but one thing is certain and that is we will all be giving both our riders 100% support in 2015.   Like all teams we cant do it without additional help from our sponsors, and if anyone out their would like to get on-board we would be very  grateful for their support”.
