Evans who placed 17th within the second Supersport encounter of TT 2018, upcoming racing return will see him pilot the Wilcock Consulting supported S1000RR BMW, that’s performed impressively around Billown and the Mountain Course.

It’s fantastic to report that race action on Manx shores in 2020 is finally on the horizon. As anticipation builds for top draw racing at Jurby it’s worth mentioning from a pure road racing perspective, that’s it under 12 months till TT 2021!
