One man who put his name in the frame as one to watch at Armoy was the event’s Best New­comer award win­ner, Davy Todd. The 21-year-old from Sol­burn in the north-east of Eng­land is in his first year on the roads after mov­ing from Bri­tish cham­pi­onship rac­ing.

“I am ab­so­lutely buzzing to be on the podium,” he said after fin­ish­ing a bril­liant third on his Long­shot Rac­ing Kawasaki ZX-6R in the Open race.

Todd raced mo­tocross from the age of six be­fore mov­ing on to Su­per­moto. “I didn’t try track rac­ing un­til 2015 and I won the Bri­tish Thun­der­sport se­ries.” he ex­plained. “I won a cou­ple of races in Ju­nior Su­per­stock last year but I was strug­gling to find the bud­get for BSB and I was keen to do the roads.” Todd’s first race with the North­ern Ire­land­based Long­shot Kawasaki team was at Sk­er­ries.
