Dickies British Supersport Championship contender Ross Twyman’s season could be in jeopardy if he can’t secure personal sponsors so is on the lookout for some generous partners to help him continue his campaign in the middleweight division this year with EHA Racing.

The Canterbury youngster currently holds third place in the British Supersport Championship standings, but is potentially looking at sitting on the side-lines, after the next round a Thruxton, as he hasn’t been able to raise enough budget to finish his season.

The 22-year-old full time engineer said: “I love riding with EHA Racing and would like to finish the season with them, but I’m struggling to find the budget I forecast I would need to complete the season with the team, and quite simply, unless I find some additional funding, I will be sitting on the side-lines after the next round at Thruxton.”

With three podiums this season and a best result of second place at Snetterton just a few weeks ago, Twyman is undoubtedly one of the BSB series’ rising young stars, but as he explained, it’s getting more and more difficult to secure financial backing to go racing.

“Edward and Gail [Allingham] and everyone at EHA Racing is like a second family to me. They’ve done their bit and I knew at the start of the season what budget I had to find. I’ve no issue with that. Unfortunately for one reason or another I’m coming up short and having stood on three podiums this year, and currently holding third place in the championship table, it would be a shame to have to sit out the rest of the year.”

Speaking of his options he added: “I’ve had calls from teams in other classes but I want to stay where I am in British Supersport, and with EHA Racing. I know I can secure that top three position in the British Supersport class and I’ll do everything I can to grab a win or two in the second half of the year for the team and my personal backers. If someone was interested in coming onboard, depending on budget, I could offer them some premium branding space on my personal equipment and also on the EHA Racing Yamaha.”
