Manx Grand Prix winner Tom Weeden will make his KDM Hire Cookstown 100 debut this weekend in a challenge he hopes will bring him back to the forefront of road racing.
Weeden joins the re-branded Burrows Engineering/Richardson Kelly Racing squad alongside Derek Shiels but isn’t putting any pressure on himself.
“I’ve settled in really well with the boys. Anything I ask for, they sort for me, really good lads, John is great to work with, he has been there done it, and knows what a rider needs, I feel like a works rider,” said Weeden.
I’m really looking forward to getting back out to Northern Ireland this weekend. I’m going to spend Thursday driving round the circuit to familiarise myself and reinforce the onboard laps I’ve watched.
“There is no pressure on myself for results, I just want to enjoy it and make further steps forward with the RK Racing by Burrows Engineering bikes in preperation for the North West 200 and TT.
“The track looks mega and can’t wait to get the season started onboard the new bikes.”
