Coyne secures sponsorship from superbikes.ie
Kevin Coyne has secured sponsorship from one of Ireland’s leading motorcycle parts supply firms, superbikes.ie for his planned assault on the Pirelli National Superstock Championship in Britain this year.
The series runs alongside the British Superbike Championship.
The Farranfore-based racer is stepping up the category after one season in the HEL British Junior Championship last season.
He has acquired a Kawasaki Ninja 636 for the year ahead and with the opening round of the British Superbike (BSB) championship scheduled for Oulton Park in late June, he used last Saturday’s Irish season launch to get up to speed.
The Mondello Park event was his first time riding his new machine. He will also take part in the second pre-season test at the County Kildare track this Saturday.
“Overall, it was a great first test on the new bike. We have found a couple of suspension issues and gearing issues that we will have sorted for the next test, and hopefully then can start to push a bit,” his father Mark said. “We are so delighted to have Liam and Almas from superbike.ie come on board. This is a new Irish business, and it always makes it easier when sponsors love racing just as much as we do, and we really want to thank them.”
Superbikes.ie was founded in 2020 and sells motorcycle race parts and accessories online, delivering across Ireland and the world. The firm is also an associate sponsor for the Dunlop Masters.
