Credit has to be given to Longshot Racing, Team Manager Harry Corbett, for giving the North Yorkshireman the opportunity to try his hand at real roads competition.

What a decision it’s proved already for both team and rider, with podium finishes at Armoy, top five finishes at Skerries and mixing it with established Scarborough specialists, at the Barry Sheene Road Race Festival Powered by Suzuki.

Alongside the Ulster GP, the growing in stature rider/team combo is also set to take in next month, the newly formed East Coast Racing Festival and the blue riband Oliver’s Mount meeting, the Scarborough Gold Cup.
