Magherafelt racer Paul Jordan and his IMR team have now enjoyed podiums on consecutive weekends, after the 25-year-old took third place in today’s Magan Turn Key 600cc Championship race at Walderstown Road Races in Ireland.
Jordan also recorded the fastest lap of the race, en-route to the aforementioned podium. But even more impressive, is the fact, that this was the first time he’d ridden the IMR/Evolution Camping R6 Yamaha, which team owner Ian Moffitt had purchased earlier this week.
The little R6 had previously been campaigned by reigning British Supersport champion Tarran Mackenzie – the Scottish ace, who won the opening six races of this season’s Dickies British Supersport series aboard this very bike.
“The first qualifying on the new 600 was quite challenging. I just took it easy for the first few laps until I got my bearings and a feel for the wee bike. First impressions were very good and if I’m honest, the bike was unbelievable – everything from set-up, to the handling and power-delivery was just so impressive. I only had to make a few adjustments for the race,” said Jordan, who who also recorded fifth and eighth placed finishes in the Open and Grand Final outings aboard the IMR/Evolution Camping BMW S1000RR.
