The 31-year enjoyed a superb season in 2015 and the Lincolnshire rider will now look at trying to retain his Isle of Man TT Lightweight title
Lintin will campaign a pair of ZX-10R Kawasaki’s in the Superbike and Superstock classes and a ZX-6R in the Supersport category whilst he will also have a newly built ER6 Kawasaki at his disposal for the Lightweight events, a class where he’s previously excelled with wins at the Ulster GP, Southern 100 and Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough as well as winning his first TT at last year’s Isle of Man TT.
The last two seasons, in particular, have seen Lintin come to the fore in road racing circles with some impressive performances for the Taylor Lindsey Racing and McKinstry Racing teams. As well as dominating the 2014 TT Privateer’s Championship, he ran as high as fifth in the opening Supersport race before finishing seventh after lapping in excess of 124mph, and posted a new personal best lap of the Mountain Course with an impressive 125.627mph which he set on his Superstock machine in the Senior Race.
In addition, Lintin won the prestigious International Gold Cup race at Scarborough in 2014, taking six wins from his seven starts at the meeting and he also took the Lightweight race at the Ulster GP for a second successive year.
