Darlington road racer Stephen Degnan, 2020 roads season will begin at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough, sampling the revived two day Spring Cup meeting.
A proven exponent of North Yorkshire’s illustrious ‘Mini TT’, his Mount CV includes various top five, top ten finishes plus an impressive run to fifth within the Bob Smith Spring Cup of 2016.
Depending upon whether 1000cc machines will be allowed to return to Scarborough in 2020, the Spring Cup (18th-19th April) could mark his first outing aboard the newly acquired National Superstock 1000 Championship points finishing ZX-10RR Kawasaki, previously piloted by Graeme Irwin.
His machinery line up for 2020 also includes his trusty, potent ZX6R Kawasaki steed, which he took to a respectable top 15 finish in last September’s Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup.
Outside of the Spring Cup, additional confirmed meets on Degsy’s race schedule for next season include the FonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200 and selected national events including the Cookstown 100.
