For 2015, Gary will continue with Kawasaki and Triumph machinery and having developed the bikes during this past year, he now aims to take full advantage of the set-up he has found and firmly challenge for the wins and podium positions at both the International road races and British Championship. He will again compete in the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport classes as well as National 600 Endurance.
As Gary’s team infrastructure continues to grow, the combination of rider and team are set to be a real force on both the roads and the short circuits with the season centred on the four (4) International road races – the Isle of Man TT, North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix and Macau Grand Prix – and the fiercely competitive, National 600 Endurance Championship.
Now entering his ninth year of racing at the International road race meetings, Gary is well placed to add to his tally of Isle of Man TT wins and build on the already impressive podium success achieved. He will also be contesting selected rounds of the National 600 Endurance Championship where he will go into the new season expecting to finish to retain the championship with co-rider Nick Edgeley.
After an intensive schedule of pre-season testing both at home and abroad, Gary’s first outing in 2015 will be at the opening round of the National 600 Endurance Championship at Brands Hatch, held over the weekend of March 20th-21st. After three rounds of the series have been undertaken, Gary will have his first road race outing of the year, at the North West 200 where he will again be amongst the pre-race favourites as he pushes for the race victories.
After that, his main event of the year follows – the Isle of Man TT. Gary’s performances around the hallowed Mountain Course since his debut in 2007 now see him as one of the pre-event favourites expected to be pushing for the race wins once more and, with numerous top five finishes to his name already, he can be expected to be at the forefront of the leaderboard in all classes – Superbike, Supersport and Superstock.
The summer months will see Gary take in more National 600 Endurance rounds around the UK circuits as well as returning to the British road circuits in August for the Ulster Grand Prix where he’ll be seeking a debut win. The busy season will then be completed with the final rounds of the National 600 Endurance series before heading east once more for the annual Macau Grand Prix.
