IRRC Hengelo: No Stopping New Series Sensation Todd

Despite the best efforts of the world class opposition, there was no stopping Wepol Road Racing’s Davey Todd in the second IRRC Superbike race at Hengelo, which saw him claim race spoils by just over 2.2 seconds.

As in the previous big bike encounter, the second quickest TT newcomer in history gradually pulled clear of his more experienced series counterparts, holding after seven laps a nigh on 3.6 second advantage.

Ultimately victorious by 2.28 seconds, it’s fair to say Todd’s performances on the Varsselring course have marked himself out, as unquestionably a contender for 2019 IRRC Superbike title honours.
