by / Friday, 18 October 2019 / Published in Blog / News, Motor Bike Racing

Current recipitent of the Davy Woods Scholarship, 17 year old Larne rider, Scott McCrory, returns to the Sunflower for his second time. The former junior moto cross rider transferred his abilities to short circuit racing at the beginning of 2018,and since then has shown great maturity in his race craft.

In his first season, Scott achieved no less than 10 Podium finishes, having competed at each of the Short Circuits in Ireland ( Mondello Masters and USBK).

His performances on track, coupled with his approach to racing in general, saw him win the 2019 Davy Woods Memorial Trophy, and along with this prestigious trophy, the Davy Wood Scholarship, a much sought after award for the younger riders of our sport.

Scott certainly justified the judges in this scholarship, where in 2019, prior next weekends event, has amassed no less than 21 podium placings, along with Fastest laps, and this was despite missing a few meetings due to bike problems!

Son of former Production racer, Al McCrory ( TZR 250) Scott, admits that he is probably getting a bit tall for the smaller capacity bikes, and could well move into the 600 or Twins class for 2010, albeit, all depending on sponsorship!

For the record, Scott will compete in the Junior Cup class at the 42nd Sunflower Trophy races, on the 390 KTM,#20.

Scott would also like ot take this opportunity to Thank his supportive sponsors; Present Sponsors: The Music Yard, Charles Hurst Motorcycles, Sammy Crossett Motorcycles Family- Heather & Nigel Kerr, Robert Copeland, Mum & Dad. Wouldn’t be here without Davey Mulligan Offroad Academy.

“The Sunflower is the end of year showcase event, where there are big names, full grids and great crowds watching, an opportunity to show of the racing skills of our local talent and young racers. Its great close racing, one not to be missed. “
