Jamie Coward Confident Of Prodigious TT 2016

Jamie Coward is confident of having a memorable two weeks of competition around the Mountain Course, at TT 2016.

Confirmed to pilot RJP Racing’s ZX6R Kawasaki for the Monster Energy supersport races, he holds the number 21 plate, as he aims for at least series of top ten finishes.

Looking towards the lightweight TT, the runner up in the 2010 newcomers A Manx Grand Prix, is aiming for a top six finish on his own teams ER6 Kawasaki.

Jamie is also all set to compete in the superbike, superstock and senior races, as he targets series of stand out results.

Recently he opened up his 2016 roads season at the Spring Cup National Road Races, at Oliver’s Mount.

Having shown good pace in qualifying, Jamie went into the opening super twins race, holding second place on the grid.

The six lap race would see Jamie, the only rider to provide any competition to 2015 lightweight TT winner Ivan Lintin.

He went onto finish the six lap race, in second place, under lying his status as a highly accomplished exponent of the super twins class.

Bad luck would stop him from contending for victory in the opening classic F1 superbike race, as on lap two when holding second position, reliability issues struck the Mistral Racing ZX7R 750 Kawasaki.

With almost just one month till TT 2016, fans, sponsors, teams and racers, are all gearing up for the most famous road race in the world, the Isle of Man TT.

Same notion applies to Jamie Coward, who in my opinion is a contender for TT privateers championship success.
