Davey Todd in Padgetts Honda deal for Isle of Man TT
Rising road racing star Davey Todd will compete in the Supersport class at the Isle of Man TT for the Milenco by Padgetts Honda team.
The news was announced on Tuesday ahead of the official launch of the event in Douglas.
Todd will race a Honda CBR600RR alongside regular team member Conor Cummins. The 23-year old rode a similar Honda for the Burrows Engineering Racing team last year and impressed with two 12th place finishes at the TT.
He also posted a best lap of 124.364mph on the 600cc machine, a speed which makes him a seeded rider for 2019 where he will line up with the number eight plate. Team-mate Cummins will lead the field away at number one giving the team a strong top-ten presence.
Sadly, ‘Flying Kiwi’ Bruce Anstey misses out again as he continues his recovery from illness, although it is hoped he will be in attendance at the TT.
Clive Padgett, Milenco by Padgetts team manager, said: “As a team we’ve always enjoyed great results in the Supersport class and we have a very strong line up this year. Conor goes from strength to strength and is a contender in every class while Davey Todd is one of the most impressive riders to come through in recent years and hopefully we can help him build on last year.
“Bruce Anstey also remains very much a part of our team and we hope to have him on the Isle of Man in some capacity as he continues his recovery from illness.”
