European roads expeditions beckon for two stroke machinery expert Rhys Hardisty, after inking a recent deal to sample the bulk of IRRC meetings.
Poignantly, his IRRC scene suitors are Never Be Clever Racing, who last year ran fellow countryman the late, great Mark Purslow.
Aside from the round at Schleizer Dreieck, which clashes with the TT Races, Hardisty’s maiden IRRC venture sees him tackle all remaining rounds at Hengelo, Imatranajo, Circuit De Chimay, Horice and Frohburg.
Additionally, alongside IRRC stints, Hardisty has also disclosed this evening that he will return this year to the aforementioned TT Races, Southern 100 and three Oliver’s Mount Scarborough meets.
Machinery wise, he has at his disposal, the following mounts, the Kaymac Marine & Civil Engineering Ltd/Willson and Wilding YZF R6 Yamaha, Gas Assessment & Training Centre/Lee Williams supported R1 Yamaha and GATC Kawasaki.
Hardisty’s 2023 road race season commences in the not to distant future, at the Scarborough based Bob Smith Spring Cup, which if you aren’t already aware, runs from the 15th-16th of April and co-insides with the Road To 2023 TT launch extravaganza.
