Michael Laverty ;
“I’m looking forward to coming home for the Sunflower trophy races, it’s always a great event and an enjoyable way to round out the season. The competition will be tough especially with BSB riders Danny Buchan and Richard Cooper also on the grid, I will give it my best to try and etch my name on the trophy for the 7th time. Bishopscourt is a great venue, the improvements to the circuit really impressed me last year so thanks to Philip and Hector Neill plus the Hillsborough club who have made it possible for me to race there once again.”
