2019 Macau GP: Steady progression the target for Todd| Phil Wain | TT and Roads
Davey Todd comes into his second year at the Macau Grand Prix with high expectations on his shoulders once more, not just because of his fine ninth place finish on his debut 12 months ago but also because of the progression he’s made in 2019 which has included a win and a podium at the North West 200, podiums at the Ulster Grand Prix and a 131mph+ lap at the TT.
However, as he’s done all year, he’s keeping his feet firmly on the ground with improvement the only thing on his mind as he returns to the event with the Penz13.com team he’s ridden with all year.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back out for my second year at Macau and it’s exciting to be back as it’s a really cool event and not really like any other event we do,” Todd told bikesportnews.com.
“We’re racing in the middle of the city with the Armco all the way round and it’s something a bit different which I like. I like having a different challenge so I’m excited to get going.”
“We had a good first year last year, finishing ninth, so we know we can come back this year and make steps forward again but, just like it has been at all the international road races this year, it’s about progressing and improving upon what I’ve done previously.
“I don’t really know where we’re going to be in terms of the end result as a lot of factors come into play but, for sure, we should be there or thereabouts. I’m simply looking forward to getting out and riding the track as, like I say, it’s so different and such a different experience. It should be a good week.”
