Phil Crowe, multiple UK Club Championship winner, is planning to participate in the Isle of Man TT Races for the first time ever this year, the race website has reported.
The talented motorcyclist, from Market Rasen in Lincolnshire, is also getting ready to take part in the Ulster Grand Prix racing event, which takes place on the Dundrod Circuit near Belfast. Crowe said he has prepared carefully for each of the the events, and has seeked advice and tips from experienced road racers.
This year, Crowe will be also busy working with and supporting young motorcyclists eager to build on their talent through his PCR Motorcycle Developments company, which is also located in Lincolnshire. He commented that he is working with many “exceptional” riders, including Tim and Tom Neave, who are both showing enormous potential for the future. Crowe is also working with Carl Simpson, a young rider who performs impressively well with bigger machines.
Crowe’s main focus this year will undoubtedly be on the roads events, but he will also stick to his short-circuit commitments with Thundersport GB in the GP1 class, and some of the British Superstock 1000 rounds. On his 2014 agenda are the RL 360 Superstock, Dainese Superbike and PokerStars TT Races, and he also plans a return to the North West 200 motorcycle event. Oliver Mount is also on Crowe’s race schedule, alongside the BMW S1000RR at Dundrod, a circuit the rider has always dreamed of racing on.
