TT newcomer awarded 'Star of Tomorrow' award

TT newcomer Davey Todd has been awarded the RST 'Star of Tomorrow' Award.

He finished as the second fastest newcomer in the event's history.

The award is decided by TT rider liaison officers John Barton and Richard 'Milky' Quayle.

Richard says: "RST's support for the newcomers is a real tangible benefit for a rider starting out and shows that their thinking is aligned and in tune with riders and their requirements.

"Davey has had an outstanding first year at the TT and his success is based on the hard yards that he has done over the winter months in preparing to race here for the first time.

"He has a great attitude and I can see him having a long and successful TT career if he continues to make the progress and build on his first year."

Jonny Towers from RST said: "We are delighted to be involved with the TT on many levels both commercially as well as supporting the travelling marshals and in creating an award to recognise and support a rider in the early stages of his career.

"Davey, in his performance and approach, typifies the type of rider that we were looking to recognise with this award."
