Brad Signs for Appleyard Macadam for 2022 Season

Four-time Quattro Group British Supersport champions, Appleyard Macadam Yamaha, have signed Brad Perie for their 2022 title campaign.

The team continue to look to develop young talent and are now looking forward to a full testing programme with a four-day test in Southern Spain in just a few weeks’ time.

Using their well-developed Yamaha YZF-R6 machinery, support from the manufacturer and a wealth of track data, the team are looking forward to a twin-pronged attack to fight for an unprecedented fifth crown in the class. 

Perie signed for the team last year and came out ‘swinging’ with podiums and wins immediately, to actually lead the series, before some setbacks dropped him down to fourth, despite taking six victories.

Perie said: “I know lots of people say this but I’ve never felt better prepared going into a race season, I learned so much, good and bad but couldn’t do much to change things as we were racing pretty much every weekend. Now I’ve got two new mechanics, a year of experience and for the first time ever I’m going testing, I can’t wait! This season the objective is clear and I feel confident we can go for wins again and push for the title.”

Team Owner Robin Appleyard commented: “We went into last season thinking we could try for podiums and see how the year would pan out but Brad came out swinging and led the series! Now we’re off to Spain and start afresh which is a great opportunity.

“We know Brad has great outright speed and can help him put a championship campaign together.

“We’ve had a busy off-season, looked at where we can improve both personnel and machinery so strengthened our allegiance with Yamaha and so are looking forward to being competitive and importantly consistent …two areas both lads can improve.”
