NWR Post TT Press release - Darren Cooper results and rewards

Posted by   on


Team NW Racing has just returned from a very successful Isle of Man TT with debutante rider Darren Cooper, who had a very busy event, with six races over the race week. Darren had three on the NW Racing BMW, two Supersport 600’s and the Lightweight race.
It was a busy fortnight for the team, and the new learning experience of the BMW 1000rr, which Darren handled with great care and ambition. The reward for the races saw Darren take home 4 bronze replicas, and two finishers awards, from the six starts.

Noel Williamson; “We went as a newcomer, starting six races and finishing all 6, and Darren got faster as the week went on. I am delighted with Darren’s performance. He is a true professional, and one easy rider to work with. He came home with 4 bronze replicas and two finisher’s awards, which in itself is a great achievement. A massive thanks to the crew for all their hard work over the fortnight and especially to Stanley Gamble for the professional way he carried out his job. I would also like to thank everyone who called to wish the team the best and also to the sponsors, for their support”



Darren Cooper; “Overall it was a good but busy TT, and everything worked well. Both 600 races were good, and I increased my personal best speed on every lap, and really enjoyed both races. For the twin I made some big changes, and unfortunately we really didn’t get the practice time that we would have hoped for. The engine was a little tired, and maybe I could have used the new engine but overall I am still delighted with 14th place in my first TT”
“With the BMW I struggled a little to get the settings right, but overall the BMW took a bit of getting used to. We now have a base setting to go back to the TT, and we have made progress, with the speed going up over the fortnight. We are learning all the time, and the TT definitely was a good bench mark to move forward for the rest of the season”
“A special thanks to Noel and all the crew for their hard work over the two weeks, including Andy Jackson, Rick Clegg, Pete Whiteside, Ste Forshaw, Stanley Gamble, and my dad Gary. I am not forgetting my wife Katie, and my sister Susie for all their help and support. I would like to thank everyone who called to the awning for their good wishes, and especially Mick and Jim from JMC”

Team NW Racing wish to pass on our condolence to the families of Adam Lyon, and Dan Kneen. May they Rest in Peace.
