Rapid next generation road racer Davey Todd is joining forces with Cookstown BE Racing, for the Super Twins encounter at the newly formed East Coast Racing Festival.
A revelation this summer on the Irish roads, the Dundrod 150 national runner up performances have caught the eye of team managers of multiple established teams.

This includes John Burrows, who is confident that Davey can take his outfit’s 2nd ER6 Kawasaki steed to a first class result at Killalane.
Alongside the proven Cookstown BE Racing mount, the Brotton racer will additionally be one to watch on the Longshot Racing ZX6R Kawasaki in what’s set to be a gripping Supersport race against the likes of Adam McLean, Michael Sweeney and new team mate Derek Sheils.
Seen spectating/helping out fellow racers at the Manx Grand Prix, it’s going to be interesting to see whether Davey will delve into Mountain Course competition, in the near future.
For now though he’s one of the fastest rising talents to emerge in multiple years, from the Irish national roads scene.
As at Skerries, Walderstown, Oliver’s Mount, Armoy and the MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix, his progress at the upcoming Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival will be monitored closely by many.
