Laverty aiming for Sunflower Trophy win number 7



Six times a winner of the Sunflower Trophy Races Michael Laverty will be the sole representative for the TYCO BMW team at this weekend’s Sunflower Trophy races at Bishopscourt.
Laverty who joined the TYCO team prior this event last year is aiming to reclaim this Sunflower Trophy for the 7th time. Last year, Laverty finished a close second to winner Glenn Irwin, who unfortunately won’t be lining up on the Superbike grid this year.

The Toome rider will line up alongside Buildbase rider, Richard Cooper and FS3 Kawasaki rider Danny Buchan, Isle of man TT winner, Dean Harrison, David Haire, Carl Philips and our own USBK Champion Gerard Kinghan for the 41st Sunflower Trophy race.
Bichopscourt lap record holder and team mate to Laverty in the TYCO squad, former Supermoto champion Christain Iddon was hoping to compete, but after Two crashes at Brands hatch last weekend, he has been ruled out on medical grounds.



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.”
