Tarran Mackenzie Is Staying With The McAMS Yamaha Racing Team For His 2022 Title Defence In The Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

Scottish born rider Tarran Mackenzie has made the decision to stay in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship for the 2022 season, he will defend his Championship Title with the number one plate aboard his Yamaha R1 machinery. Tarran is staying with the McAMS Yamaha Racing Team for his fifth consecutive season.

Mackenzie won the 2021 British Superbike Championship Title with securing ten race victories and a further nine podium finishes. It was a close battle going into the final round at Brands Hatch but Mackenzie won all-three races dominating the season finale and lifting the Championship Crown.

“I am really excited to come back and defend the title; it will be my first time in that position in BSB, so it is another new experience and a different way to start the year – I am really looking forward to it!
“I will be coming back with McAMS for my fifth year in the British Superbike Championship, which is amazing and it is fantastic to be back with Steve and all of my exact same crew. The Yamaha looks like it will make a good step forward too for next year as well.
“To be running that number one plate is going to be something special. It was something that I did in Supersport and it is obviously something that Dad has done over the years. It will be an interesting year and I am looking forward to it.
“We were laughing about it the other day as 2022 will be 25 years on since Dad defended his, and then he won his second title, so that 25 year history is still there for me!
“I want to thank all of Raceways Yamaha, Steve Rodgers, all the guys and girls at McAMS and the entire team as we had an amazing year and made my dream came true. To get to ride with them again next season makes me feel very lucky and I am grateful that we can defend the title together.”

“We are delighted that Tarran will remain part of the family in 2022. He did such a fantastic job in the 2021 season, taking us to our first British Championship. In the final few rounds of the season, he without doubt raised the bar so if he can carry that form into 2022 he will be a force to be reckoned with.
“We aren’t resting on our laurels, 2021 was our most successful season to date but there are a number of areas in which we know we can improve. There were a few parts run by the factory WorldSBK team towards the end of last season that we’ll be running at the start of 2022 so hopefully we can hit the ground running with an even better package.

Tarran will compete in three World Superbike wild card rides during the 2022 season.
