COOKSTOWN Burrows Engineering Racing, arguably the top privateer team of motorcycle road racing in recent years, will mount a two-pronged attack in 2018.
Dubliner Derek Sheils will ride for the John Burrows owned team for a third straight year while joining him in the fold will be rising star Davey Todd from Saltburn, near Middlesbrough, who in 2016 was a race winner in British Superstock 600.
Todd burst onto the road racing scene last year with top five results at Skerries before going to Armoy and shocking the establishment with a second place in one of the Supersport races behind Derek McGee before taking his 600cc machine to a superb third in the Superbike race behind Michael Dunlop and McGee, beating William Dunlop in the process.
The Tyrone based team have Suzuki support for 2018 and Todd will ride one of the latest generation GSXR 1000 machines in the Superbike and Superstock classes as well as having machinery for the Supersport and Supertwins divisions.
The 22-year-old from the North East of England will compete in all the Irish National meetings while on the International scene he will debut at the North West 200 and TT events and make a second appearance at the Ulster GP.
