The Gorilla Racing/MWR Motorcycles squad will expand to a two rider entry at TT 2020, having secured the services of seasoned Mountain Course exponent Jason Corcoran.
Corcoran who placed seventh within the 2013 Newcomers A Manx Grand Prix, Manx GP CV also includes a further three top 20 finishes, including a very respectable 18th place finish within the drama filled Senior class encounter of 2018.
A TT debutant this year, his first TT tenure ended quickly following neck injuries sustained from an incident at Glen Helen during Tuesday evening’s practice session.
Now back to race fitness, he is eager to make the most of the enterprising new opportunity with Gorilla Racing as he teams up with team regular Matt Mylchreest.

Three years a Manx GP competitor, recent TT campaigns have seen Mylchreest steadily improve his stature, pace around the fabled, mythical Mountain Course.
46th, 51st within the Monster Energy Supersport Races of TT 2019, he ended last June’s competitive action with a best lap speed just over the 113.3 mph lap mark.
Like new team mate Corcoran, he’s an ambitious racer determined to accomplish his personal racing goals and one that is capable of acquiring prominent results in 2020.
