The road racing season fires into life this weekend at Oliver's Mount in Scarborough, giving local Yamaha team Mar-Train Racing an opportunity to hand Dean Harrison a competitive run out on the all-new YZF-R1M.

Having already tested the bike in Spain and also at Kirkistown with the help of former GP racer Jeremy McWilliams, Harrison said: "I really can't wait to get started. We've had three productive tests and are a lot further on than I expected to be at this stage."

Speaking of his Yamaha UK backed machinery, he added: "The R6 is better than last year and the R1M is great. It's the best bike I've ridden, so it'll be good to put it to the test. There is a good entry for this weekend, so hopefully we put on a show and kick off the year with some good results."

Also on this weekend's entry for Scarborough is East Coast Racing's Lee Johnston, who will ride BMW S1000RR and Triumph 675cc machinery at Oliver's Mount. But the man the fans pay the entry price for, Guy Martin, will be there with a Tyco BMW S1000RR Superstock machine, and possibly the Smiths Triumph he will ride at this year's TT.
