Mathison teams up with Halsall Racing for TT 2018

Daley Mathison will team up with Halsall Racing for TT 2018 after signing a Supersport deal with the squad.

Mathison’s season was left in doubt after he parted company with Jackson Racing last month, and he will now run his BMW Superbike and Superstock bikes himself. But he will also now line up on Halsall’s 600, which was initially purchased for William Dunlop last year.

“I’ve not ridden an R6 before, and it feels great already,. “It’s different to the Suzuki and Honda I’ve ridden in the past but in a good way, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it goes on the Mountain Course,” said Mathison after a test at Croft.

“I’m incredibly grateful to Martin for giving me this opportunity to ride his bike. I’ve had the worst few weeks imaginable since leaving Jackson Racing and not knowing if I would even make it to the TT, but it’s starting to come together now.

“My own 600 was getting a bit old and I didn’t know if I was going to even be able to run, so it’s a huge relief and it’s fired me up to go out there and try and get the best result I possibly can for him and the team.”
