Cowton Racing have confirmed that their 2020 roads challenge will see them join forces again with podcast star, 2018 Junior Classic TT winner Dominic Herbertson.
For 2020, Hexham’s Herbertson who placed a very respectable 10th in last June’s Bennetts Lightweight TT, Lightweight class challenge sees him set to pilot a brand new Z650 Kawasaki for the CC Engineering supported Cowton Racing squad.
Runner-up within the opening Super Twins encounter of the 68th Scarborough Gold Cup, Herbertson’s year 2 stint with Cowton Racing alongside Lightweight TT action, looks set to also include competition at all Oliver’s Mount meetings, plus selected Irish roads events.

Additionally targeting track time at Thundersport rounds, there’s no doubt that the Herbertson/Cowton Racing combination has the potential to prove equally mutually beneficial for each other in 2020.
A team statement issued today via Facebook, provides further detail on the latest 2020 International roads development. It reads:
“We are very happy to announce that Dominic Herbertson will be continuing his support and ride with us hopefully on the new Cowton Racing by CC Engineering Z650 in 2020. The Z650 is currently being built over this winter, keep an eye out for pictures and updates!
Domimic will be riding the Z650 twin along side his main ride with Davies Motorsport, which we would like to Congratulate Dom on.
