Ballyduff motorcycle racer Jack O’Grady is to make his British Superbike Championship debut this weekend.
The current leader of the Dunlop Masters Supersport Cup at Mondello Park has secured a deal to race a Yamaha R6 for the UK-based Team Val-Tech Racing.
He will contest the Snetterton round of the BSB which takes place this weekend and will race in the Pirelli National Superstock class aimed at 16 to 25-year-old racers.
It is by definition an entry-level class with engine capacity capped at 636cc.
“This is proper professional racing, and I wasn’t to see if there is something I can learn,” he said.
“I always wanted to do something like this, I turn 26 soon so I will be too old for this next year.”
Just as newspapers and magazines are paid for, digital editorial content will also have to be paid for.
