Rising International Roads Force Todd Secures Padgetts Honda For Monster Energy Supersport TT Tenures

Rising International roads force Davey Todd will follow the likes of John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson and Steve Plater in competing for the esteemed Padgetts Racing squad at TT 2019, sampling one of the illustrious outfit’s CBR 600RR Honda’s within the two four lap Monster Energy Supersport races.

Lead solo newcomer of TT 2018, Todd’s first TT Races stint saw him amaze, excite, thrill and most of all impress roads aficionados, his fellow competitors and high profile team bosses such as Clive Padgett.

Mixing proven TT winning quality with hungry, ambitious rising talent makes for a formidable combination, and there’s no doubt that Todd will be a dark horse for at minimum top five finishes or better in June.

Same as new Padgetts stable mate Conor Cummins, his Supersport steed for TT 2019 will carry title sponsorship from Milenco Security, and will feature a striking black, red, yellow, blue and green livery.

Not many riders can quickly develop into front running exponents of the TT Races, but in reigning TT Privateers champion Davey Todd, there’s no doubt about his potential.

As already announced, Todd’s 1000cc challenge will see him join forces with Rico Penzkofer’s Penz squad, to pilot high spec S1000RR BMW machinery within what will no doubt be captivating RST Superbike, Royal London 360 Superstock and Dunlop Senior races.
