Mar-Train Racing’s Dean Harrison will be hoping to shine once again at the annual Cock O’ The North meeting at Oliver’s Mount.

Following on from a successful Southern 100 the Lisburn-based team will be hoping that fan favourite Harrison can retain the Cock O’ The North title he has won for the past two years.

Harrison was in scintillating form in 2014 winning seven races including a Junior class double for Mar-Train. Tomorrow he will again compete in the Junior class on his YZF-R6 Yamaha whilst he will use his Superstock YZF-R1M for the Senior and feature races.

“I always look forward racing at Oliver’s Mount, I’ve had some great results there over the past few years and the fans are just mega,” Harrison said.

“We’ve been making good progress recently so it would be nice to maybe get a few wins and give all the boys some reward for all the work that has gone in.”

Team Principal Tim Martin added: “Dean proved how good he is around Oliver’s Mount back in April when he took the chequered flag twice, we have a lot of miles under our belts since then and made some big steps forward recently with the R1M so I am confident we can put on a good show this weekend.

“There is always a great atmosphere at Oliver’s Mount so we look forward to heading over as a team, with a bit of luck we’ll have some good results to celebrate come Sunday night.”
