Multi Event Winner McWilliams Links Up Again With KMR For NW200 Return

Hoping to build upon a North West 200 CV, which includes at present two race wins, and in total five rostrum finishes, Jeremy McWilliams back part of the KMR Kawasaki fold, is set to make a high profile return to competition around the Portstewart based Triangle course.

As in his previous stints with the highly successful KMR squad, ex 250 GP race winner McWilliams, will focus on the Super Twins class, piloting like the majority of the entry, which includes KMR team mate Derek McGee, rising star Adam McLean, and newcomer Davey Todd, ER6 Kawasaki machinery.

Speaking recently about his chances of sealing more podium finishes, within the ultra competitive class, he stated:

“I would never take part in any race if I didn’t think I could win. Standing on the North West podium has been such a highlight of my career and I still think I can do it again.

But with riders like Martin Jessopp, James Cowton, Adam McLean, Derek McGee and Dan Cooper in the field riding as hard as they do I know I will be up against it.”

Jeremy went onto add:

“I wouldn’t be happy going to the North West on anything but one of Ryan’s bikes. I always feel a bit of a pleb until Tuesday practice is over, because I am never up to speed.

I need until Thursday to get into my rhythm, to gel with the bike and find my way around the track.

I enjoy the way the North West is set up because you have time to enjoy the event. Once you get Tuesday over you can settle into your riding and try to get up to speed.

There is time to think about things, assess where you can improve and then come back and go faster.”
