“I know of JP Corry from their busy branch in my home town of Carrick, where I’ve called in from time to time for some tools and DIY material for my house,” smiled the double British champion.
“I’m also aware by my visit, that there’s quite a bit of history surrounding their company. With the team’s parent company EHA Group also a well-established Northern Ireland based business; it’s great to have JP Corry on-board for this year’s North West 200.
