Coward joins PreZ Racing in two-year TT deal

Up-and-coming Isle of Man TT star Jamie Coward will ride for the PreZ Racing team in 2019 and 2020.

Coward will pilot Raceways-built Yamaha YZF-R6 and YZF-R1M Yamaha machinery in the two Monster Energy Supersport Races, the RL360 Superstock, the RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT Races.

The Prez Racing squad will also return to the Southern 100 and are quietly confident that the amiable Hebden Bridge racer can improve on his strong performances to date, which include an eighth place finish in last year’s Senior TT, and lead the Yamaha challenge at the TT Races. They will also race for the team at the other main international races including the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix.

“I am really happy to confirm that I’ll be riding for PreZ Racing on the Yamaha R1 as well as the R6 next season. The team is only small but is very well run by John and Zandra Preston,” said Coward.

“I am really looking forward to getting my teeth into the Yamaha R1, and believe the bike will really suit my riding style. After a few years of development, the bike now looks like a good package.”
