Last year Buildbase Suzuki arrived at the Bishopscourt Racing Circuit with newcomer Richard Cooper, The result was Three wins for the team, Richard Cooper and the Buildbase Suzuki return to the Sunflower Trophy races again, this time with THREE riders!
Cooper was one of the first entries received, and now David Allingham, along with circuit newcomer, leon Jeacock will ride the distinctive blue machines.
Allingham rode the Suzuki at the final round of the BSB at Brands Hatch, and straight away felt more comfortable with the inline four in comparsion with the Yamaha R1M he has ridden all season for his Dads EHA race team. “ To be honest, I never really gelled with the Yamaha R1M, And with crashes due to trying to override problems, I was not enjoying my racing, Stuart offered me a run on the Suzuki last week at Brands, and straight away, I felt so much more comfortable, So I ve got another chance to ride the bike this weekend at Bishopscourt Racing circuit, of which Im looking forward too, as I don’t get the chance to race in front of my home fans. Im going to out to enjoy myself, I want to get the good feel factor back again”
Sunflower Newcomer leon Jeacock, from Kirby, beside Mallory Park where Buildbase Suzuki are based, is really looking forward to his irish debut, 15th in the Superstock race at Brands Hatch last Sunday, Jeacock had this to say “ Im very excited to be able to race at the sunflower trophy Races for Buildbase Suzuki. As I have never raced at the Bishopscourt Racing Circuit before, I will be taking Friday to get acquainted with both the bike and the circuit. Looking forward to meeting the Irish race Fans”
