TALENTED youngster Adam McLean will have a full complement of machinery for the International road races in 2018 having signed for by Team IMR.
Adam will campaign a BMW S1000RR in the Superbike and Superstock classes and a Yamaha YZF-R6 in the Supersport races with the team having recently purchased a 600cc machine from Raceways Motorcycles.
The 21-year old has been a standout performer in the last two seasons, impressing in all of his races and especially at the International events where he's made a more than favourable impression. Last year he took a brilliant fourth in the second Supersport race at the North West 200 and third in the Ulster Grand Prix Supertwins race.
He also took sixth in the opening Supertwins race at the North West 200 and tenth in the first Supersport 600cc race at the Ulster GP, improving his quickest lap around the Dundrod circuit to 125.535mph.
The Magherafelt rider also made his debut at the Isle of Man TT races last year, winning the coveted Newcomers Trophy after finishing 18th in the opening Supersport 600cc race where he lapped at 120.644mph, the fifth fastest lap ever recorded by a newcomer on a 600cc machine, and won a silver replica.
He was on course for a brilliant top ten finish in the Lightweight race after lapping at more than 115mph before being forced to retire on the third lap.
McLean was a consistent front runner at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough, taking regular podium finishes in the Supersport and Supertwins races and finished third, fourth and fifth overall in the Irish Road Racing Supertwins, Supersport 600cc and Moto3 Championships respectively.
“I'm really looking forward to working with by Team IMR in 2018 and am very grateful for the opportunity," said Adam.
“I'll be riding top class machinery with a superb infrastructure behind me which will hopefully enable me to be successful and build on my 2017 results so I can't wait to get going!"
Peter Bradley, Managing Director at said they were delighted to be the title sponsor of Team IMR and thrilled to secure the services of Adam McLean for the 2018 road racing season.
“As part of the Bradley Group which has operations in England and the Isle of Man as well as a base in Northern Ireland, the company places a huge emphasis on supporting local, young talent and we believe that with the right backing, Adam has the capability to achieve considerable successes and build on his highly impressive 2017 effort and learning curve.
