Herbertson To Lead Davies Motorsport’s International Roads Expedition

Junior Classic TT champion Dominic Herbertson will embark upon a fresh, enterprising new challenge in 2019, having pledged his services for the season ahead to long term classic racing backers Davies Motorsport.

One of pure road racing’s most popular, well liked competitors, Herbertson has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, scoring regular top class results.

10th in last June’s Bennetts Lightweight TT, his machinery line up for 2019 sees him pilot ZX-6R, ZX-10RR Kawasaki machinery in the Supersport, Superstock, Superbike encounters at the North West 200, TT Races and Ulster Grand Prix.

Ultra enthused about his new challenge with Davies Motorsport, it’s fair to say many didn’t anticipate the yesteryear racing giants moving into the International roads scene.

Boasting experience in bucket loads, allied to countless racing knowledge, they will no question give Herbertson immaculately prepared machinery, that’s certain to prove more than a touch competitive on the prestigious Triangle, Mountain Course and Dundrod circuits.

An exciting combination that mixes experience, raw next generation talent, ambition and enthusiasm a plenty, the Herbertson/Davies Motorsport combo as proven by last years Junior Classic TT success, is one of those rider/team partnerships that is extremely mutually beneficial for each other.

Speaking via Twitter about his new deal with Davies Motorsport, fan favourite Herbertson who will also compete for the esteemed outfit at the Classic TT, stated:

“Exciting times ahead! A big thank you to Davies Motorsport and their sponsors Belgrave Motor Company and Bott Ltd. Really looking forward to taking another step forward in my career!”
