A statement released on Wednesday evening described the split as amicable and said the Dungannon team, owned and run by ex-racer John Burrows, would see out the rest of the year with Cork’s Mike Browne.

Magherafelt man Jordan, who joined the team in 2020 alongside Browne – replacing Derek Sheils and Tom Weeden – crashed out at Armoy last month in a high-speed spill in qualifying. He was able to continue racing and achieved a best result of fifth in the opening Supersport event.

Jordan was in action last Saturday at the Ulster Superbike meeting at Bishopscourt in Co Down, where he rode a Yamaha for Prez Racing.
