A new team to contest the MCUI Irish and MRA Ulster Motocross Championships has been unveiled.
Suitor Brothers Racing, owned by long-time enthusiasts Ricky and Rowley Suitor, will be campaigning KTM machinery supplied by Norman Watt Motorcycles in the Ulster and Irish Championships. The impressive list of sponsors include Norman Watt Motorcycles, Fox clothing, Risk Racing Europe, Polisport Plastics, Putoline Oils, RFX Filters, Dunlop Tyres and MXM who have produced the impressive new graphics. Ex Irish and Ulster champ David White is also providing assistance to the team.
Sponsors outside the motocross industry include Body Tech Collision Repair, Bore A Hole Civil Engineers, Contac Claims, Spanesi Automotive Equipment, automotive paint suppliers Spiess Hacker, Ford parts specialists Ophir Motors Dundrod, Moneyreagh Recovery and Van Sales and DP Contracts.
Leading the team is reigning Ulster Open champion and 2011 MXdN team member Richard Bird. Richard will be supported by reigning Ulster U21 champion Drew Gowdy, Niall McCauley and Phil Harris who’s returning from injury after two years out. Away from the Premier class the team will also be supporting young riders Mark Patterson, Steven Gill and Jonathan O’Neill and the old warhorse of the team John Guy who will be running in the Clubman’s class.
The team will be competing in the Ulster and Irish Championships as well as the popular Carrickfergus club grasstrack series in 2012. They are an exciting addition to the Irish motocross scene and the enthusiasm and passion for the sport shown by the Suitor brothers will be a refreshing addition to the paddock during the year.
