2018 TT Privateers Championship runner-up Sam West is actively seeking new sponsorship deals, to enable his 2022 ambitions which include venturing back to the North West 200 and TT Races.
Established as one of the leading next generation International road racers worldwide, his racing CV includes no less than ten top fifteen TT finishes, a Superbike Classic TT top 10 finish, Southern 100 podium finish and highly creditable results at Armoy, the Ulster Grand Prix and Macau Grand Prix.
With Covid-19 thwarting the bulk of International roads meetings, recent seasons have seen the Wilmslow racer focus on the short circuits, tackling selected National Superstock 1000, NG Road Racing events.
June’s NG Road Racing Castle Combe round, saw the 25th fastest racer in TT history vault to a brace of Formula Pro Stock FP2 race victories, after ultra competent performances aboard the Louigi Moto 999 Ducati.
Although enjoying keeping up his racing intensity, the affable West has hugely missed competing on the roads.
Hoping in the near future to join the prestigious ‘130 Mph’ TT club, there’s no doubt that he has the capabilities to achieve this coveted goal.
This goal allied to many others though is dependent upon West gaining the aforementioned needed sponsorship boost.
Those who may be tempted to back the BMW Motorrad machinery stalwart, will be helping one of pure road racing’s quickest rising talents and one that is entering the prime of his racing career.
