In his first year at the ‘Friendly Races’ Brad won the Senior Support Consolation race, plus finished a very respectable 10th in the Radcliffe Butchers Supersport race.

That and a string of good results in other events across the UK, including the Armoy Road Races and all meetings at Oliver’s Mount, saw him finish the 2016 Duke Road Race Rankings Championship in 11th place.

Speaking to Manx Radio’s Tim Glover, he said he was proud to win the trophy and was looking forward to taking part in the championship again this year.

Brad’s 2017 roads schedule, includes returning to the Southern 100 plus selected events at Scarborough.

The planned main highlight though of the year, will be his Mountain Course debut, at the Manx Grand Prix.

Highly rated by many, Brad’s progress around the most famous road racing circuit in the world, will be closely watched by many.
