Speaking about his new sponsorship deal for TT 2018, which will see him compete under the Carl Cox Motorsport Powered by H&S Contractors banner, driver Reeves who’s determined to return this June, to the top step of the TT rostrum, stated:

“We’ve got to hand it to Carl, every year he steps up with a serious level of support and he’s such a great guy to have involved with the sport, for everyone within the Sidecar community.

With so much short circuit success I feel it’s our time to notch up some TT victories. We’ve done the ‘knowledge’ there, so there’s no reason why we can’t with such a strong package and support.

It would be great if we can do it for Mark (Wilkes) also, he’s a local young bloke who really deserves some success on three wheels. We’re also thankful to have the continued support of Neil Pallet of H&S Contractors. Can’t wait to get this season started!”

Carl Cox who alongside his international roads involvement, has also backed this year New Zealand roads front runner Jay Lawrence, stated about his outfits TT 2018 Sidecar line up.

“I love sidecars and have great respect for the Isle of Man, so it’s awesome to combine the two, with support for Tim and Mark for this years TT Races.

Tim decimated the field in the British Championship last year, but I know he wants to stand again on the top step of the Douglas Grandstand again too. With any luck I can get out there again to cheer these guys on, as they give it their best shot!”
