Commenting on backing Yuri, as part of his Irish Ago Racing outfit, Kevin said:

“As I watched Yuri struggle with certain aspects of the Manx Grand Prix ie : Officials, Scrutineers and his choice of machine . I thought it was time I started giving back to the Sport in some small way.

Yuri Barrigan will Race in Irish Ago Racing Colours under the Number 90 in the Lightweight 400 Manx Grand Prix on the Wednesday of Race Week.

I myself will be running at No 86 not a great number but an Entry achieved all the same.”
