High Quality Stable Of Machinery For Reigning Ulster GP Super Twins Winner

Reigning Ulster Grand Prix Super Twins winner, Dan Cooper, has a high quality stable of machinery, for the 2017 roads season, which includes returns to all international road races.

2016 could only be described as a mixed year for Dan, who along the way proved yet again why he is established, amongst pure road racing’s fastest rising stars.

Pole position for the Super Twin races at the North West 200, a third Welsh open victory at Aberdare Park and of course his momentous Ulster GP Super Twins success, proved the main highlights of the year.

Having sustained a shoulder injury, following a high speed incident with Ryan Farquhar at the North West 200, it thwarted Dan’s chances of contending for a podium finish in the Lightweight race, during TT 2016.

Now back to full fitness, in my opinion the former TT privateers champion, is a definite contender for Lightweight victory at TT 2017, as he pilots the KW Electrical Services backed ER6 Kawasaki.

His additional steads for this years TT Races, are a brand new CBR 600 Honda which carries from Ruby Site Services, for the Monster Energy Supersport races.

Whilst the RST Superbike, Royal London 360 Quantum Superstock and Pokerstars Senior races, sees him remain S1000RR BMW mounted, backed by Tony Morris, CMS brand.

All of these machines, will run under Dan’s owns team’s banner.

Since making his roads debut, at TT 2010, “The Ferret” has season on season, moved up a level on the roads.

Determined to continue his stellar progress, 2017 could well prove his most fruitful year of between the hedges competition to date.
