Davies Motorsport Go Green For 2019 1Davies Motorsport would today (Thursday) like to announce that they will be expanding their Classic Racing Team efforts on to the International Road Racing scene in 2019.
Run by John and Colin Davies, the team will again have Junior Classic TT winner Dominic Herbertson riding for them with a 2019 Kawasaki ZX10RR race machine as well as a Kawasaki ZX6R.
The Burton upon Trent-based team, who have previously sponsored a number of riders including Neil Hodgson, Kevin Mitchell and Alex Bedford, will contest the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport classes at the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and the Ulster Grand Prix whilst also continuing with the classic machines at the Isle of Man Pre TT and Classic TT meetings.
27-year old Herbertson cut his teeth at the Manx Grand Prix before progressing to the Supersport and Lightweight races at the TT in 2014. Since then, he’s made steady progression and has been rewarded for his hard work and diligent approach with both his results and lap speeds increasing at a healthy rate.
The Isle of Man TT races have seen him finish in the top 15 on four occasions with last year’s meeting seeing him take a career best to date of tenth in the Lightweight race. In addition, he claimed 12th in the Superstock race, where he lapped at close to 128mph, and a brace of 14ths in the two Superstock races.
The County Durham rider has taken that form to the North West 200 and Ulster GP, scoring two top ten finishes in the 1000cc races at Dundrod last year.
Meanwhile, after taking fourth and fifth in the 2017 Junior and Senior Classic TT races, Herbertson put in a brilliant ride on the 350cc Davies Motorsport Honda at last year’s event to take a stunning win in the Junior race, coming home ahead of Jamie Coward and Lee Johnston.
Speaking about the season ahead, Herbertson said; I would like to thank John and Colin for giving me this great opportunity. The new Kawasaki looks to be a fantastic piece of equipment and I can’t wait to get on the race track to get to grips with it. A big thank you as well for all the support from the team partners.”
Team owner John Davies added; “Having won at the Classic TT in 2018, we felt the time was right to use our 40 years of motorcycle racing experience and move up to the modern TT. Dominic has shown great potential on the road race scene previously and we would like to help him to fulfil that potential with the latest machinery and our technical help.”
The team will have continued support from long standing partners Bott, the Ashby de La Zouch vehicle workshop and storage specialists who have been involved with the team for ten years.
There will also be a large increase in help from the Belgrave Motor Company, who have enjoyed being involved in the successes of Davies Motorsport in previous years.
