Speaking via Facebook about his upcoming maiden Tandragee, Cookstown ventures, plus additional 2019 roads plans, he candidly stated:

“This has always been on our bucket list (Cookstown/Tandragee), and this year we are giving it ago on both the Yamaha R6 and the new addition BMW S1000RR.

We also have some more pure roads events in the Southern 100 and a possible return to Aberdare Park. We will also be taking in a few rounds of the NG calendar.

With TT 2019 entries put in, we are still awaiting news as the closing date is not until March.”
