Darren Cooper to ride at the Sunflower

Team NW Racing will finish off the 2018 season at the Sunflower Trophy on Friday/Saturday 19/20th October at the Bishopscourt Circuit. This will be Darren’s first outing at the popular Co. Down course, and while he has concentrated on the road races this year, Darren was out recently at the BSB round at Oulton Park on his 600 Kawasaki. He qualified well, and while he got a great start in race one, a problem with the regulator saw him slip down the field, and he finished in 22nd.
In the second race which was wet, he had tyre problems and suffered from a lack of grip, and had a few hairy moments. Despite this he ended up 21st in the race. Darren will race the NW Racing BMW 1000, as well as his 600 and 650 Kawasaki’s over the two day season finale meeting.

Noel Williamson; “We are delighted with the season that we have had, and it will be great to get out with the big boys for a season finale. It will be good for the team and for our rider Darren Cooper, and while this will be a new circuit to him, he has a great approach when learning new circuits. The Sunflower is always a great meeting, and a well supported one as well. I would like to thank everyone who have supported the team this season, and hopefully we will have a good weekend”

Darren Cooper; “I am looking forward to rounding off the season, where I will be riding the three bikes which will keep me and the team busy. I appreciate the organisers for making the event happen, and hopefully it will be a fitting finale to the season. I have had a fantastic year and I can’t thank Noel and Stanley for all the work that they have put in for me”

“Hopefully the weather will be good to us and the fans will turn up to make the meeting a memorable one. I would also like to thank all the Irish fans for making me so welcome at the various events during the year, and I look forward to returning next season”
