Daley Mathison

Now becoming recognised as one of the sport’s leading ‘next generation’ racers Daley was delighted to finish races in 2014 ahead of the sport’s best riders such as John McGuinness, Bruce Anstey and Ian Hutchinson at venues as varied as Scarborough and the Dundrod circuit of the Ulster Grand Prix.

Eagerly looking forward to more successes working with his Marketing Partners in 2015, as his ‘out of season’ preparations continue.

The 2014 Road Racing season was probably the best of Daley’s career so far. At the beginning of the year the Honda was replaced by Hol-Taj Exports with a Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike. In August, Daley was delighted to win his first Grand Prix race, winning the Ultra Lightweight Race at the International Ulster Grand Prix on the Logan Racing Honda RS125.

2014 also saw Daley make his debut appearance at the the International Isle of Man TT. Daley returned the excellent first-time results of 35th and 41st in the Supersport races. And he was delighted to have achieved a best lap average speed in excess of 120mph at the meeting.

Simon Neary

In his first year racing (2000) and at 20 years old (the youngest in his class),Simon took, EMRA-Best up and coming driver, Darley Moor-F2 sidecar champion, New Era-F2 Sidecar champion, ACU Star series-open class sidecar champion.

After 8 years of trying, and coming oh-so-close, Neary was finally able to stand on a TT podium when he finished third in last year’s opening race on a dynobike engine also becoming the fifth fastest driver in the process. The Leeds driver, who was British Champion in 2005 and runner-up in 2009, continues with Stuart Bond in the chair and has a great chance of improving upon his results 12 months ago as he now has 5-times winner Nick Crowe in his corner.

Tony Thirkle

All of Tony’s six TT finishes up until this year have been in the top twenty with his personal best being 11th in 2000, his fastest race average speed being 102.68mph when coming 15th in Race A last year on his 600cc DMR Honda.

During this period, Tony regularly appeared on the rostrum at the Oliver’s Mount Circuit in Scarborough, including a victory in July 2004 & competed in the FSRA British Championship, finishing14th twice and 11th in the Super F2 Championship during the last three seasons.

Lee Johnston

26-year-old Lee Johnston is both an accomplished short circuit and pure road-racing competitor. The diminutive Ulsterman honed his skills with top-flight British championship competition, winning the Junior Superstock title in 2008. He then went on to become a regular front-runner in the British Supersport class, but is now regarded as one of International Road Racing’s rising young stars.

His Isle of Man TT debut in 2012 was well documented as a high profile newcomer, and the Maguiresbridge lad went on to lift the Monster Energy Privateers’ Championship at the 2013 event with East Coast Racing.

The quirky young Ulsterman set a blistering lap of 126.358mph on his way to 11th place in the Senior TT in 2013 aboard his privateer Honda, and followed it up with a double podium, and a phenomenal 131mph lap at the Ulster Grand Prix in August of the same year.

In 2014 Johnston raised the bar once again with a double at the North West 200 in the Supertwin class; bravely picking himself up off the tarmac after getting taken out of a race winning position in the Supersport encounter.

He also tasted success for the first time at Scarborough during the 2014 Gold Cup event in the Supersport class, where he also took the same 600cc machine to third place in the feature Gold Cup event at Oliver’s Mount. His 2014 season ended at Macau with a fine fourth place for East Coast Racing and is now looking forward to 2015 with a full stable of machinery running under the East Coast Racing banner with additional support from Burdens and other associate partners.

Dominic Herbertson

Dominic Herbertson is thoroughly enjoying his road racing having secured solid results on his first time competing at the Isle of Man TT plus excellent results recently at the 2014 Scarborough gold cup.

Having made his mountain course debut at last years Manx Grand Prix Dominic went into TT 2014 just aiming to enjoy his first experience of competing at the worlds greatest road race. Supersport TT race 1 saw Dominic produce a calm and measured performance in tricky conditions all round to clinch highly respectable top 50 finish on Herbertson racing ZX6 Kawasaki.

The second supersport race saw great conditions all round the mountain course as Dominic recorded fine 36th place finish. Lightweight TT would see him acquire top 30 placing plus he was leading Suzuki mounted rider during the race as he finished his first Isle of Man TT in highly creditable fashion.

Dominic’s Oliver’s Mount debut started with top six finish in David Jefferies cup b race 1 where he lapped underneath the 1 minute 58 seconds bracket. Second David Jefferies cup b race proved to be a great one for the rider who is set to have a big future in pure road racing as he recorded 4th place finish finishing only four seconds off a top three placing.

Second super twins race was next up and with 12th position achieved it was in all a productive debut around the mount for the sixth place finisher in 2013 newcomers b Manx Grand Prix. Dominic is another up and coming road racer who has the potential to long term secure podium finishes at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix, Scarborough gold cup and the Isle of Man TT.

After Steve joined the family firm of Lockside Engineering as a motor engineer he soon followed his father Jim into racing.
