RECENTLY ‘retired’ Ritchie Harrison has revealed further plans for the season ahead – and still none of them appear to involve hanging up his leathers.
In fact, the former Golden Era Supersport runner-up is now set to hit the grid in two different championships after confirming a second Myerscough College entry.
Last year, UK Clubsport revealed how Harrison had joined Aintree’s Pre-Injection and Steel Frame king Ryan Garside in a role as motorsport lecturer at the Preston college to work with budding young motorsport engineers.
Harrison had planned to tackle Preston & District’s Streetstock 125cc Evo series with a WK SP125 built by the students, while Garside moves to Thundersport GB with his own machine maintained by the students.
But now Harrison has announced plans to campaign Preston’s F400 championship with a Myerscough College Kawasaki ZXR400, alongside the Streetstock chase.
“I’ve had a look around the bike and it’s got some trick bits and is going to be a proper weapon,” he said. “I’m genuinely hoping we can challenge for the PDMCC F400 and the Streetstock Evo title from round one.
“We’ve had some really fantastic support from sponsors and associates who have stepped in to support this new Myerscough College venture and we can’t wait to get started.”
