Road Racing News Speaks To Part 2: Jamie Coward

Following on from yesterday’s article, the second part of Road Racing News uncontrived chat with fourth place finisher in Saturday’s Senior Classic Manx Grand Prix, Jamie Coward, is as follows:

Road Racing News:

I would say you will be back next year (TT Races).


“Definitely be back next year, am hoping to sit down with the boys after this meeting and looking to do a few short circuit races at the end of the season.

I want to try and get too British Superstock if I can, to sharpen my skills bit more, everyone seems to be doing it, I might not be at the sharp end like some of them are, just to push on that little bit more, we’ll just have to see what happens.”

Road Racing News:

From my point of view, you have improved ten-fold on the 1000.


“I’m quite happy you said that, lot of people take me as a smaller bike racer, shown my worth on the smaller bikes but even now on the big bikes at the TT, three top six finishes, beating the factory backed Yamaha in the first Superbike race on a Superstock bike.

Every time out on the bike, feel like I am improving. But that’s down to the team, the team got a good-personnel, look after me with the electronics, data side of things.

I feel like I’m getting better myself every time I come back, more confident with the track and the circuit and stuff.

So hopefully we can carry on for a few more years and get better and better, still only 31, still got plenty of life in me yet, the team are mega keen to continue.”

Road Racing News:

So, will you be back with KTS/Steadplan next year?


“Definitely yeah, we agreed a deal in principle in 2020, a three-year deal, but with covid and all that, that’s kind of gone out of the window.

We’ve sold the Yamaha and acquired a Honda for next year, cause the Yamaha don’t get me wrong, fantastic bike handling wise, the power delivery is really nice and linear.

But there is no top end, really struggling with top end. So, we need to be, round here it’s quite surprising how much you are flat out on the bike.”

The 2019 Junior Classic TT winner added:

“It’s race pedigree at BSB (Latest generation Honda Fireblade) and on the roads this year is really good, I think that’s the bike to be on and these boys have acquired one.

Hopefully we are going to get out on it at the end of the year and looking forward sit down with the team and try and get a proper contract signed, get stuff sorted.”
